Council to Vote on Hiring Reeves to Conduct Hedquist Investigation

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Casper City Council on Tuesday will vote on hiring another area lawyer to conduct a conflict of interest investigation into councilman Craig Hedquist.

Council will vote on adding Weston Reeves to the city’s alternate legal counsel.

If council approves the hiring, Reeves will be tasked with figuring out whether Hedquist, who owns Hedquist Construction, a Casper-based road construction firm, breached conflict of interest laws when he allegedly confronted city engineer Andrew Beamer about compensation during a construction progress meeting in August.

Former city councilor Kathleen Dixon, who recommended that the city hire Reeves, stepped away from the investigation last month after Hedquist’s legal team protested the hiring, saying Dixon’s hiring also raised conflict of interest concerns.

Dixon’s firm concluded in a previous investigation that Hedquist committed workplace violence during the supposed altercation with Beamer.

According to the report, Beamer told Dixon & Dixon that Hedquist had a “challenging type of look” during the altercation. Beamer made a legal recording of the meeting.

Hedquist, according to investigation documents, asked Beamer if he was “… f—ing going to stand up, b—h? Are you going to start paying?” at one point during the meeting.

Hedquist faces possible removal from city council.
