Adjourn – Motion Closing Meeting


Pursuant to the attorney-client privilege and Minnesota Statutes, section 13D.05, subdivision 3(b), I hereby move to close the meeting for the purpose of receiving confidential legal advice from the City Attorney regarding the pending grievance with the IUOE. It would be detrimental to the interests of the City for the City to hold a public discussion with its attorney where an opposing party or an opposing attorney could listen to or be made aware of the City's position and strategy. Therefore, it is in the City's best interest to obtain legal advice in a confidential setting to maintain the attorney-client privilege.

(Make Motion) After the motion passes, the Council President to read:

The Council will now enter into closed session pursuant to the attorney-client privilege under M.S. 13D.05, subd. 3(b), to discuss the pending grievance with the IUOE.
Note: Safety and Public Works Committee will meet at 6:45 p.m.
