Second open meeting complaint filed against City Council

Resident Neal Siniakin filed an open meeting complaint with the Nevada attorney general’s office Friday in regards to what he called “the willful withholding of resumes, and other willful Nevada NRS 241 violations against the people of Boulder City, with the clearest intent” for the City Council meetings on Sept. 20 and Sept. 26 in which the council chose Steve Morris as the new city attorney.

In an email sent to city officials and residents, Siniakin said that resumes may have been withheld in order to make Morris look like the most qualified candidate.

The communications director for the Nevada attorney general’s office confirmed that a complaint had been filed. On Tuesday, Oct. 17, Boulder City spokeswoman Sue Manteris said that the city had not received a complaint from the office.
