Longmont City Council to Hold Executive Session on City Attorney’s Performance and a ‘personnel Matter’
The Longmont City Council is to meet behind closed doors Tuesday night to resume its evaluation of City Attorney Eugene Mei’s job performance and pay.
Mei has been Longmont’s city attorney since March 2009. The council began its latest review of Mei’s performance during a Jan. 29 executive session.
In September 2017, after a previous performance evaluation, the council awarded Mei a 1.3 percent pay raise from his previous $177,552 annual base salary, increasing it to $179,860.
A separate topic on the council’s 5 p.m. Tuesday executive session agenda is to be a discussion of “a personnel matter involving threatened litigation” and to “determine negotiation positions, and strategies, receive legal advice and consider confidential documents” about that personnel matter.
The agenda posted on Thursday gives no further details about what the personnel matter is, who is involved, or what the threatened litigation is. But it says that discussion was requested by Mei and City Manager Harold Dominguez.
The Tuesday executive session is to be held in the council’s study session room in the Longmont Civic Center, 350 Kimbark St., prior to the 7 p.m. start of the regular public meeting in the Civic Center council chambers.
During the regular meeting, the council is to consider the pay of Longmont Municipal Judge Robert Frick. )
The council met in an executive session performance review with Frick, the city’s municipal judge since June 2016, on Feb. 5. In September 2017, the council gave Frick an 8 percent pay hike, raising him from $129,996 to $140,400.
