Councilman Merv Bennett, the former CEO of the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region, says he plans to participate in the discussion and vote of a proposed contract between the Y and the city to operate six city-owned aquatic facilities.
Bennett said he got the OK from City Attorney Chris Melcher.
Bennett was quoted in the Indy as saying that he planned to recuse himself from voting on the proposed agreement because he couldn’t be objective.
Bennett denied making such a statement.
“I didn’t say I couldn’t be objective,” he said. “I don’t remember making that statement.”
