Asheville City Council will hold special July 5 meeting to consider complaint against an employee

From the City Clerk:

The Asheville City Council will be holding a special meeting on Friday, July 5, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber, located on the 2nd Floor of City Hall. The purpose of this special meeting will be to consider a matter relating to an employee of the City. At the meeting, it is anticipated that Council will go into closed session to receive an update on the investigation of a complaint, charge, or grievance against an individual public officer or employee. The statutory authorization is contained in G.S. 143-318.11(a)(6); and to prevent the disclosure of information that is confidential pursuant to G.S. 160A-168, the Personnel Privacy Act. The statutory authorization is contained in G.S. 143-318.11(a)(1).

While the city’s notice doesn’t specify which employee, an Asheville Police Department lieutenant recently alleged that APD Chief William Anderson forced him to “change the facts” while investigating a March car crash involving the chief’s son.
