What is an executive session?
Executive sessions are not open to the public and may only be held for very specific purposes:
1. Personnel matters of non-elected personnel.
2. Consultation with an attorney on matters that would be deemed privileged in an attorney-client relationship such as litigation or claims against the city.
3. Employer-employee relations and negotiations.
4. Discussions prior to acquisition of real estate.
5. Matters relating to the security of a public body or agency, public building or facility, or the information system of a public body or agency.
6. Confidential data relating to financial affairs or trade secrets of second parties.
No formal action may be taken while the Commissioners are in an Executive Session. Any binding action must occur in an open public meeting.
