Councillors keeping mum about details of rare closed-door city council meeting
Councillors and the public were notified about the special council meeting on Saturday
London councillors gathered today for a rare closed-door city council meeting, but no details have been made available about what they discussed.
The public agenda said the meeting was about a personnel matter, and involved discussion of litigation or potential litigation affecting the municipality.
After emerging from the in-camera portion of the meeting, Deputy Mayor Paul Hubert reported "progress" had been made on the issue.
Mayor Matt Brown and Coun. Phil Squire declined to comment on when the details of the meeting would be publicly available.
Councillors were told about the special council meeting on Saturday.
The meeting began just after 1 p.m. on Monday.
Each member of council is there except Ward 13 Coun. Tanya Park.
Councillors CBC News spoke with prior to the meeting said they didn't know what the meeting was about.
Generally, full council meetings happen on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. twice a month. The last council meeting was last week.
No one here in London council chambers (yet) as discussions about the personnel matter continue in a different room behind closed doors. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/ldnont?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ldnont</a> <a href="https://t.co/0q3jAnliJP">https://t.co/0q3jAnliJP</a> <a href="https://t.co/aDhwmonNJL">pic.twitter.com/aDhwmonNJL</a>—@KateDubinski
