Mount Prospect held a closed session on Jan. 26 to discuss personnel matters and land acquisition.
The Village of Mount Prospect's board of trustees held a special meeting on Jan. 26 in the Executive Board Room of Village Hall.
Mayor Arlene Juracek and trustees Paul Hoefert, John Matuszak, Steven Polit, Richard Rogers, Colleen Saccotelli and Michael Zadel were present.
The board went into a closed session immediately after roll call. In the closed session, the mayor and trustees discussed personnel matters, which could include hiring, compensation, discipline or dismissal of public employees. Personnel matters can also include hearing testimony regarding a complaint against an employee.
During the closed session, the board discussed buying and leasing real property for use by the village.
While most governmental meetings are open to the public, closed sessions may be held under Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) 120/2 (c), which allows exceptions to the open meeting rules. Personnel matters, collective bargaining, buying or leasing property and litigation are among the exceptions that allow closed meetings.
After the board completed its discussion on the two agenda items covered by ILCS 120/2 (c) (1) and 120/2 (c) (5), the meeting was adjourned.
