Meyer: Attorneys Representing Hedquist, City in Negotiations

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Casper mayor Paul Meyer says city of Casper attorneys are in ongoing negotiations with attorneys representing Ward II city councilman Craig Hedquist.

“Negotiations continue amongst the two sides, and that’s a very good thing right now,” Meyer said. “We need to continue negotiations and put this behind the city.”

The city of Casper and city manager John Patterson both accuse Hedquist of violating state conflict of interest laws. If Casper City Council decides to move forward with a contested case hearing, Hedquist may face possible removal from the elected body.

During a March council meeting, however, attorneys with Hedquist claimed that, even if council found Hedquist guilty of conflict of interest violations, he cannot be removed from council.

Attorneys representing Hedquist also made claims of attempted illegal police surveillance against Patterson last week.

The city accused Hedquist of committing workplace violence during a profane altercation last August. Hedquist has since apologized for using “unfiltered language” during the argument.

Hedquist owns Casper-based Hedquist Construction, which does contracted road work for the city.
