Minot Fires City Attorney

Posted: Updated:

The former city attorney of Minot is calling out the process of how she was fired.

Colleen Auer was fired Friday afternoon for insubordination. But, she thinks that proper protocol wasn't followed. Auer shared her thoughts at tonight's city council meeting.

“This is a matter of public business. When you remove somebody who is a department head and you publicize it to the world that the person is properly removed under law, under the procedures you all approved, put in place, and are bound by then you have to answer. So, I’m asking for an answer,” says Auer.

Meanwhile, the city of Minot released a statement earlier today regarding the situation, saying: "Due to potential litigation, the City of Minot will have no comment regarding the termination of Colleen Auer at this time."

Auer took the position as City Attorney in March. The search for a new one will begin immediately.
