The Town of Benson Board of Commissioners has called a special meeting for Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at 7pm at the Benson Conference Center (303 E. Church St. Benson, NC 27504). The sole purpose of this meeting will consist of a Closed Session, pursuant to NCGS 143-318.11 (a) (3): “To consult with an attorney employed or retained by the public body in order to preserve the attorney-client privilege between the attorney and the public body, which privilege is hereby acknowledged. General policy matters may not be discussed in a closed session and nothing herein shall be construed to permit a public body to close a meeting that otherwise would be open merely because an attorney employed or retained by the public body is a participant. The public body may consider and give instructions to an attorney concerning the handling or settlement of a claim, judicial action, mediation, arbitration, or administrative procedure. If the public body has approved or considered a settlement, other than a malpractice settlement by or on behalf of a hospital, in closed session, the terms of that settlement shall be reported to the public body and entered into its minutes as soon as possible within a reasonable time after the settlement is concluded.”
