**** Executive Session Agenda Items: ****

A late add on executive session agenda item came up just before Agenda Item #7 was taken up.

Members of the Needles City Council met during this late add on executive session agenda item regarding anticipated litigation relating to a complaint being filed in regards to the City of Needles’ annexing into the San Bernardino County Fire District.

A court hearing is scheduled to be held in San Bernardino, California on Wednesday, June 29th, 2016.

Members of the Needles City Council were allowed to meet and take action on the agenda item because members of the Needles City Council did not receive notice of the complaint until after the Needles City Council’s agenda was noticed and posted to the public.

Members of the Needles City Council received information of the complaint just before the start of the Needles City Council Meeting on Tuesday, June 28th, 2016.

After the late add on executive session was held, Needles City Attorney announced what reportable action was taken.

Members of the Needles City Council unanimously approved defending against the lawsuit, to assert appropriate affirmative defenses, and any cross claims the City of Needles has against the plaintiffs.
