The County Commissioners met at their offices in Plymouth late Wednesday afternoon. Very little of the meeting was open to the public but there was a hint of the possibility of layoffs.
Shortly after calling the meeting to order, and after routine business was addressed, Commission Chair Sandra Wright convened the first Executive Session.
“We went into Executive Session in great detail regarding sale of, you know, some land and also personnel contracts that have been brought before the Board as far as, you know, any layoffs for what we may be perceiving in the near future.”
None of this was addressed publicly, nor would Wright comment further.
Included in the two Executive Sessions that took up the vast majority of the approximately 90 minute meeting, were Treasurer Tom O’Brien, newly elected Commissioner Dan Pallotta and Chair of the Advisory Board, Norwell Selectman Ellen Allen. Greg Hanley, also a newly elected Commissioner, as well as Pembroke Selectmen Chair, were unable to attend.
Wednesday’s meeting was the next to last one for outgoing Commissioners Jack Riordan and Anthony O’Brien—neither of them chose to run for re-election as Commissioners.
The next Commissioners’ meeting is scheduled for December, 21 at 8 a.m. at the Brockton Registry of Deeds.
