EC Commissioners convened a public meeting on December 5, 2017 and voted unanimously to indemnify former Commissioner Robert Rowland, former County Manager Ed Ehmann, and former County Attorney Wade Gateley, in the matter of the lawsuit brought by current CDS Director Kyle Fenner. The indemnification language will be made public in a forthcoming county resolution. Following an Executive Session with Andrew Nathan of Nathan Dumm & Mayer law firm, Commissioners Willcox, Thayer, and Richardson made the decision to retroactively grant indemnity to Rowland, whose term as commissioner expired in January 2017, and to Ehmann and Gateley, who both abruptly resigned their positions with Elbert County earlier this year.
Commissioners also voted unanimously to engage Kline Alvarado Veio P.C. as bond counsel for the Sun Country road paving project that was approved by a majority of Sun Country voters last month.
