Bainbridge council meets to talk about ‘complaints or charges brought against a public officer or employee’

The Bainbridge council went into a closed-to-the-public executive session at the start of its meeting Tuesday, in part “to receive and evaluate complaints or charges brought against a public officer or employee,” according to the March 12 agenda.

The executive session was also called for the council to talk to its legal advisors about “litigation or potential litigation.”

The session was originally scheduled for 45 minutes, but was extended 10 minutes until 6:55 p.m.

The public portion of the meeting began just after 7 p.m.

Not surprisingly, council members did not immediately publicly address the topic talked about behind closed doors.

The agenda was amended after one change (the Sustainable Transportation “request for qualifications” item was pulled to be addressed later that night), then approved as presented, and the meeting continued.

Tuesday’s agenda includes: a presentation by the city’s Environmental Technical Advisory Committee; updates to the city’s sign code; review of recommendations from the Kitsap Humane Society on revisions to the city’s Animal Control Code; and new business that includes the purchase of a slope mower.
