Board of Trustees to retreat into executive session

Madeleine Winer

Kent State’s Board of Trustees will have a special meeting Friday, to consider specific topics as provided for under Ohio’s “Sunshine Law.”

The board will meet at the corporate offices of The Davey Tree Expert Company, located at 1500 N. Mantua St. in Kent. It will not host any committee meetings and will not discuss or take any recommendations or votes.

According to Ohio Revised Code 121.22, the board can hold an executive session only after a “majority of a quorum of the public body determines, by a roll-call vote, to hold an executive session.”

The code states the board can discuss issues of employment and personnel, preparing for and engaging in collective bargaining, the purchase or sale of a property and legal matters.

The board will host its next regular business meeting Wednesday, Dec. 4, at the Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine, located at 6000 Rockside Woods Blvd. in Independence, Ohio.
