BOCC notified of pending litigation

Published: Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 10:02 AM.

In the midst of the exchange, Novak was repeating a request previously made to commissioners and staff – if there are questions about pending issues address them individually outside public meetings – and Commission chair Tan Smiley was trying to intercede.

Commissioner Warren Yeager again reiterated a motion to approve Novak’s request and adjourn the meeting and second was on the floor and moved for a vote.

Upon adjournment, Bryan and McLemore engaged in a pointed exchange just out of microphone and ear shot of all but those at the podium while Smiley repeatedly slammed his gavel and tried to separate the two.

McLemore, standing over Bryan, moved slightly away but continued to jaw at his fellow commissioner for several minutes as she returned in kind.

Before deputies, called by staff from the meeting room, arrived, McLemore walked into the hallway, with Hammond, while Bryan began a discussion with Novak.
