In its latest rehearing after apparent string of meetings violations, Strawberry board recommends appointee

November 27, 2019


The Strawberry Recreation District board has recommended an active community member with a background in finance be appointed to fill its vacant fifth seat, a decision that required a do-over after the board’s original vote on the candidates appeared to violate a state law that prohibits members from casting secret ballots. The need to repeat its initial Nov. 19 selection hearing is the latest in a series of troubles for the elected board, which is already facing accusations of breaking open-meetings laws by its former general manager, who is suing the district for wrongful termination. In fact, the board previously had to hold a special meeting to correct a separate apparent open-meetings-law violation as recently as May. (Elliot Karlan archive photo / For The Ark 2019)
