Wyoming officials meet in secret to discuss Menards store
A group of city and council officials met without public notice to discuss a possible $5.3 million land sale to Menards, according to an article in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle.
The Aug. 19 meeting between members of the Laramie County Commissioner; the county’s lawyer; the mayor of Cheyenne, Wyo.; and the assistant city attorney was held to determine whether the county owned a stake in a parcel of land that is being considered for a Menards home improvement store.
The meeting, scheduled the day before, was discovered when a newspaper reporter walked into the room by chance. No action was taken at the meeting.
Under Wyoming’s open meetings law, each item of public business to be discussed must be noticed to the public beforehand.
