ACTION: Adopted In connection with the motion certifying the closed session, the Mayor made the following statements:

1. Staff briefed the council in significant detail regarding the genesis, decision making, management, termination and aftermath of the police division's cigarette trafficking investigation. Council understands that a full and comprehensive history and evaluation is only possible after the conclusion of the internal affairs investigation which is expected to be completed within the month. The consensus of council is that further public comment on this matter must be deferred until after that time when staff has committed to share with the public all relevant information about the course of the investigation that is prudent and lawful.

2. The council discussed the legal and financial relationship between the city and the Fort Monroe Authority.

MOVER: Councilmember Donnie R. Tuck.
