Resolution No.: 2016-008

A Resolution Setting Forth Findings

In Support Of A Closed Meeting – Fence Controversy And Threatened Litigation

Whereas, Minn. Stat. §13D.05 subd. 3(b) permits closing a meeting if such closure is permitted by the attorney-client privilege;

Whereas, the County Regional Rail Authority desires to consult with its attorney regarding a fence viewing petition that was served on the Authority and the underlying threat of lawsuit related to the controversy ; and

Whereas, it is not possible to fully discuss strategy and the options available to the Authority in a public meeting; and

Whereas, without such a meeting the Authority will have to make decisions without the full benefit of consultation with counsel, and is concerned that in such a situation, it could make poor or uninformed decisions, exposing the Authority to liabilities and costs that could be avoided by fully informed decision making available only in a closed session with counsel; and

Whereas, certain phases of the litigation strategy may be impaired if every discussion is available for the benefit of opposing parties;

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, a closed meeting of the Wabasha County Regional Rail Authority addressing the above referenced concerns will be held with the Authority’s counsel. No subject matter other than the foregoing shall be discussed at said meeting.

Motion to adjourn.

Adopted Unanimously
