KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Two Klamath Irrigation District board members have filed complaints against their colleagues, saying they broke public meeting laws.

The complaint filed with the state ethics commission says Board Chairman Brent Cheyne, Board Vice President Grant Knoll and board member Ken Smith decided prior to public discussion to fire district manager Mark Stuntebeck. He later agreed to resign.

The complaint filed by board members Dave Cacka and Greg Carleton also says the board also tackled subjects not allowed in executive session on Feb. 29 and March 15.

A separate complaint sent to the Oregon State Bar alleges legal counsel Nathan Rietmann “aided and coached” a majority of the board to violate the public meeting law.

Rietmann declined comment when reached by the Herald and News of Klamath Falls (https://is.gd/KXSC7X).
