Council likely to go into closed session
The Asheville City Council will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, at 5 p.m. in the Council Chamber, located on the second floor of City Hall. The purpose of this special meeting will be to consider authorizing legal action regarding N.C. House Bill 488, and other matters relating to the city’s water system and the effects of House Bill 488.
At the meeting, it is anticipated that Council will go into closed session, for the purpose of consulting with an attorney employed by the city about matters with respect to which the attorney–client privilege between the city and its attorney must be preserved, including potential litigation. The statutory authorization for the closed session is contained in N.C.G.S. 143-318.11(a)(3).
