With Weston County facing potential cuts of as much as 25 percent, emotions ran high during a discussion of next fiscal year’s budget at the county commissioners’ Apr. 19 meeting.
A discussion of fuel tax revenues degenerated into acrimony, and Commissioner Marty Ertman moved to go into executive session before rescinding her motion.
“The reason I would like to go into executive session is that we seem to all have an interesting dynamic here that isn’t working,” she explained. “We have a dynamic between all of the elected officials. We have a dynamic among ourselves. We are pulling two ends against the middle here. I obviously have a personality that doesn’t get along with the other four.”
