Commissioners will discuss settlement negotiations or strategy sessions related to litigation in connection with the Department of Juvenile Justice and secure juvenile detention.
After the closed session, the board will reconvene in open session in the County Commission meeting room for its regular board meeting and to take action on this matter, if necessary.
County officials have been fighting the DJJ for reimbursement of the overcharges for housing youthful offenders from 2009 to 2013.
Commissioners plan to keep fighting for reimbursement of $3.1 million in overcharges.
