"The City Council has called a Special Meeting for Friday, December 21, 2012 at 8:30 a.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall. It is anticipated that the Council will adjourn into Executive Session to discuss personnel matters...
3. Authorization to retain special Counsel to assist the City Council in a potential Section 75 proceeding.
4. Motion to adjourn into Executive Session to discuss a personnel matter."
A Section 75 (page 7) is not a good thing: "Civil Service Law section 75 provides that a covered employee may not be removed or otherwise subjected to disciplinary penalty except for incompetency or misconduct shown after a hearing on stated charges."
