The Philomath City Council did not make any decisions or have any public discussion Monday night after coming out of a closed meeting with City Attorney Jim Brewer.
The council went into executive session for 2 hours, 30 minutes as allowed by state law for legal consultation “concerning legal rights and duties regarding current litigation or litigation likely to be filed.”
All seven city council members were present for the meeting.
Although the subject of the meeting was not publicly announced, councilors had been advised by Brewer at a Sept. 12 meeting to consider holding an executive session on Millpond Crossing to “have a frank and forthright conversation … and that litigation is likely to be filed.”
The council is not allowed to make decisions in executive sessions.
The next City Council meeting is currently scheduled for Oct. 10.
