Top Secret meetings in Rincon

When will they learn?

A marathon-length, closed-door City Council meeting Monday night and early Tuesday ended with an exhausted council – and a pile of unanswered questions.

Council members met behind closed doors for more than seven hours, hearing comments from at least a dozen city employees – mostly from the police department.

The closed meeting started at 8:06 p.m. Monday and ended at 3:22 a.m. Tuesday. No action was taken in open session at the end of the meeting.

Council members declined to state the purpose of the meeting. However, a Georgia Press Association attorney said it was an improper meeting.

    rogue this story is actually much more bizarre than you probably realize the chief of police and a detective have now been fired and i won’t even repeat some of the rumors as to why–there may be some issues about the sunshine laws not being exactly followed but i actually understand why some of the employees “testifying” would have wanted to do so in private–the chief had only been on the job since the spring when he came down from va–where his family still is for now if i recall correctly and he’s like the 3rd chief little ole rincon has had in 4 years or so…

    the story still gets weirder as it goes on–the chief is appealing the termination–and after he was put on leave if the reason they fired him is accurate it is a little lame–of course i thought most small town police chiefs served “at the leisure” of the council–not sure if that’s the case in rincon…
