In a 3-2 vote, Ravalli County Road Supervisor Dave Ohnstad has been fired by the Ravalli County Commission.

The firing came after a public hearing Friday in which details were presented about a problematic road project on Upper Woodchuck Road, at the border with Missoula County. Results of an investigation conducted by deputy county attorney Howard Recht were presented, along with Onstad’s rebuttal by former county attorney George Corn.

Ohnstad has been county road and bridge supervisor since 2004. Voting for termination were commissioners Suzy Foss, Ron Stoltz and Matt Kanenwisher. Commissioners J.R. Iman and Greg Chilcott voted for keeping him.

The board was presented with other possible disciplinary actions, but decided instead to remove him from the job. Mike Roth was appointed to direct the department until a replacement is found.
