The city of Englewood faces a sudden expenditure that has nothing to do with fixing the stormwater system that was overwhelmed by last month’s rains.
Next week, voters in the south Denver suburb will get a special-election recall ballot in the mail.
Councilwoman Laurett Barrentine is facing a recall effort from a group that collected signatures to get the issue on a special election ballot.
They accuse her of being a bully, obstructionist and unprofessional — accusations that she denies.
“Nobody should be recalled for doing their job,” said Barrentine.
