In a vaguely worded statement issued Wednesday morning, Barton County commissioners announced that an investigation had been conducted and that further information and/or action will be made known when applicable.
The statement, made by commission Chairman Don Davis, came after two half-hour executive sessions called to discuss non-elected personnel. Present in the session with the commissioners were County Clerk Donna Zimmerman and Sheriff Brian Bellendir.
The sessions Wednesday followed a series of closed-door meetings following the commission’s agenda meeting Monday two weeks ago. Theses were also to discuss non-elected personnel and both Zimmerman and Belledir were present as well.
No other details were available as of this posting.
