The meeting was held in the Wetmore Community Center despite the ongoing work. The meeting started at 9 a.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance and Roll Call. Introductions of the public in attendance followed.
Public comments: One citizen brought a report to the Commissioners of the perceptions out in the public. While he personally had nothing against them, he did say that the community was in turmoil about the Board insisting that CSU fire Robin Young. He also stated that there was a firestorm in the blue collar and construction arena about the decision to require insurance for the perc-test techs and suggested that the Board, especially Commissioner Kattnig, would suffer the repercussions at the ballot box. Commissioner Printz told him that the insurance requirement would be addressed later in the meeting. All three Commissioners continued their “we didn’t fire her” story and again stated that they didn’t insist on her removal. Mr. Kattnig also, again stated that they had already talked to Young’s supervisors (a “fact” still in question) before driving to Ft. Collins.
