SANATOGA PA – Police department personnel matters and what Lower Pottsgrove Solicitor Robert Brant described as “potential litigation” were the subjects of a township Board of Commissioners’ executive session held last Monday (May 5, 2014) at 6:30 p.m., a half-hour before the board’s regularly scheduled first meeting of the month in the Buchert Road municipal building.
Brant, who at the start of the regular meeting announced the session had been conducted, did not offer further details. He said commissioners merely were advised of and talked about the topics, and that “no action was taken” on them.
Board discussions of some legal and personnel matters are allowed by state law in closed-door meetings, not attended by the public, under certain circumstances. Official action on any topic, however, must be made only in public meetings.
