BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota attorney general says the Foster County Commission violated open records and meetings law when the county auditor privately acted as a liaison between the chairman and other commissioners.

Wayne Stenehjem says the chairman of the commission asked the auditor to contact the two remaining commissioners about the chairman’s decision to fire a county employee because of time card discrepancies.

Stenehjem says the exchange of information and attempt to build consensus on the issue was a matter of public business and it should have been advertised with a notice.

The attorney general ordered that conversations be prepared from the signed statements of the commission and auditor, and be made available to the public.
