May 19, 2016 County Commission Executive Session: Settlement?

County Attorney Chris Capps is holding an executive session with his clients (county commission) today at 4:15.

Best bet is that the major topic is a proposed settlement of the Sheriff's salary suit against the county.

After the trial of this matter, Brittain told Capps and the other attorneys hired to represent the county to file an appeal. That appeal has not been heard.

Because this is not a meeting open to the public, the commissioners can not deliberate, take a vote, or make a decision to accept or reject a settlement while in executive session.

If commissioners want to make a decision about a settlement, yes or no, they must come out into the "sunshine" of an open meeting.
