The City Council is scheduled to meet behind closed doors today with City Attorney Patricia Kelly to talk about “economic development projects involving the electronic industry, election matters and storm water matters,” the agenda states.
The item involving “election matters” is new.
The agenda doesn’t go into specifics, so it’s unclear exactly what issue the council is discussing in executive session.
But earlier this month, Colorado Ethics Watch filed a complaint against Americans for Prosperity, saying the group was violating election laws by not reporting its donations and expenditures. Conservative radio host Jeff Crank is the group’s state director.
This is the second time that the council will meet in executive session to discuss an economic development project involving the electronic industry and pending litigation regarding storm water.
The city and El Paso County officials are at butting heads over the city’s plans to collect delinquent storm water fees by recording prejudgment property liens at the county.
