ALAMOSA — In a response filed last week in district court, the Alamosa Board of Education (ABOE) agreed to disclose executive session tapes regarding the sale of the Polston property for an in camera review.
The Keep Polston Public (KPP) plaintiffs requested an in camera review of the executive session tapes from the March 25, April 8, April 15, April 22, May 2, May 6 and May 9 meetings in search of alleged Colorado Open Meeting Law violations like an illegal convening, according to the response. An in camera examination considers confidential or sensitive information to determine whether to introduce it to the jury and make it part of public record, and is held either on or off the record, though usually recorded.
The requested May 6 executive session tape, however, “seems to be inaudible,” according to the response. “Whether the recording was never made or did not record properly is unknown.”For the complete article see the 10-01-2013 issue.
