Today, at 1:00 pm, the Quartzsite Town Council convened a "Special Meeting" to conduct the business on the agenda from yesterday's cancelled regular meeting. The Town had failed to properly post the regular meeting with 24 hours notice. See QTown blog.
Mayor Foster added one new item to today's agenda however, "Discussion and possible action regarding the Chief of Police position." was listed as item 8.
At 2:23 pm the council reconvened. Agenda item 7 passed unanimously. Regarding Agenda item 9, Foster stated that he had no "attorney client privilege" to waive with the Town Attorney. Lively discussion ensued over clarification of when the council is the "client". The item passed unanimously.
Only Foster and Workman voted in favor of putting the police Chief on leave, the motion failed.
