The Durango Herald: The Durango City Council will hold its regular online meeting this evening, and may end up spending some of that meeting in executive session – ostensibly for the purpose of discussing the potential purchase of the FIS Worldpay building on the south side of town.
Under Colorado’s Open Meetings Act, a two-thirds vote is required for a public body to legally go into executive session. An executive session appeared on the City Council’s agenda, indicating that at least a vote on the matter will occur, and council might opt to use the closed-door option.
Executive session is a necessity of governmental bodies. At times, legal and financial issues that must be discussed cannot be discussed publicly – for example, whether to hire or fire personnel or whether to make an offer to lease or purchase land or buildings.
