County council kept closed meeting short

At the behest of Warden John Green, county council kept its closed meeting on March 27 much shorter than usual.

Over the past several months, council has held len­gthy closed sessions, several lasting well over two hours.

But when council went into committee of the whole this time to consider reports, a clos­ed session was near the top of the list.

But Green warned coun­cillors that “We have people in the audience who deserve respect.”

Consequently, he said, “I may get mean in the closed ses­sion if people get redundant.”

The warden’s warning ap­pear­ed to work, with a closed session that lasted just over an hour.
