Fiscal court takes Wellness Center discussions behind closed doors, again

Posted July 23, 2014 at 1:59 pm

The Twin Lakes Family Wellness Center’s financial and now legal issues continue to be ongoing and was once again discussed at the most recent meeting of Clinton County Fiscal Court.

However, what was discussed wasn’t disclosed as it came during a “closed session” of the court’s regular meeting last Thursday evening, July 17.

As has often been the case with discussions of the Wellness Center situation, and with a host of other topics in recent months, the fiscal court opted to take the talks out of the view of the public, hiding instead behind closed doors to conduct county business.

All court members were present. However, Clinton County Judge/Executive Lyle Huff was out-of-town attending another meeting and was absent. County Attorney Michael Rains was also present.
