Wash Co. prosecutor charges two with violating FOI Act.

Posted By on Mon, Apr 2, 2012 at 8:15 PM

The Washington County Prosecutor's office has filed misdemeanor charges against two West Fork city officials accused of violating the state Freedom of Information law. Charged were West Fork Treasurer Kristie Drymon (who also serves as the West Fork City Water Department office manager and acting City Clerk), and Wastewater Utilities Commission chairman Virgil Blackmon.

They are accused of failing to alert the media and public about a West Fork Water Commission meeting on Jan. 11, at which the commission reportedly discussed who might fill a vacant seat. According to the Washington County Observer, after the meeting was held, Chairman Blackmon told the paper that he didn't feel "comfortable" revealing the candidates discussed at the ostensibly public meeting.

Drymon and Blackmon will be arraigned on April 17 in Prairie Grove. Each faces up to 30 days in jail or a $500 fine.
