Colorado Springs council plans closed-door meeting on ethics issue

From The Gazette (Colorado Springs):  The City Council is citing attorney-client privilege in planning a closed meeting Monday about an ethics complaint recommendation on Councilwoman Helen Collins.

The purpose of the executive session “is to receive legal advice and consultation with Council’s retained attorney regarding the (Independent Ethics Commission) recommendation, which is clearly allowed under the Colorado Open Meetings Act,” noted that retained council attorney, Suzanne Dugan, of Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll.

While the council can receive legal advice in a closed meeting, it cannot discuss what to do with that advice, said Steven D. Zansberg, president of the Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition.
