A two-hour closed meeting of the Ford-Iroquois Public Health Board is now questioned as a possible illegal meeting. And—action taken by the Board could be challenged.
Administrator Doug Corbett was stripped of any duties concerning the hiring, firing, or other disciplinary matters of any employees. The Board will further discuss the matter.
Corbett’s executive powers were reduced after a two-hour closed session that apparently was not part of the agenda.
The meeting, at the Gilman-Danforth Library Monday, listed “security procedures” as the reason for the closed session. The Board went into the closed session to talk about discipline of specific employees, which included Corbett.
The matter was brought to light by the Paxton Record. The state Open Meetings Act requires a governmental body to name the reason for a closed session.
