She advised that any person responsible for the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound-producing electronic devices might be removed from the meeting. She also advised that cell phones that are set on “vibrate” cause microphone interference and requested that they be placed in the “off” position.
4. Public Comment
David Pilpel stated that inferred from the agenda and the fact that there were no written materials that there would be no action. He expressed hope that the salary survey and the contract would be made available before any action was taken. He stated that the budget continues to be the biggest challenge. It is important for the Director to be able to go to the leadership of the labor community to find ways to save money and change work practices. This will require a high level of trust. Regarding the director’s salary, it will be more difficult to go to labor to ask them to help save money if the Board hires a new director at a substantially larger salary.
5. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.11(a) as to whether to conduct a closed session and invoke the attorney‑client privilege.
On motion to invoke the attorney-client privilege: unanimously approved.
