Council to Discuss Threat to Public Services or Facilities
The agenda for next Tuesday’s City Council meeting includes a discussion with regard to a threat to public services or facilities. The public will not have the opportunity to comment on the matter as the potentially worrisome issue will be heard in closed session.
California Government Code section 54957 allows for a legislative body to meet in closed session to discuss “a threat to the security of essential public services, including water, drinking water, wastewater treatment, natural gas service, and electric service, or a threat to the public’s right of access to public services or public facilities.”
The agenda discloses no details as to the nature of the threat.
In recent months, however, the City has implemented enhanced security measures at City Council meetings and hired armed guards to patrol City libraries.
