Clinton Mayor Walks Out of Closed Sessions

Updated: Wednesday, July 23 2014, 10:40 PM CDT
CLINTON, IA (AP) -- The mayor of Clinton has refused to attend two closed sessions of the City Council saying a recent lawsuit over open meetings which the city lost has taught him a valuable lesson.
   Mayor Mark Vulich stepped out of two separate closed sessions on Tuesday, one involving a salary increase for the city administrator and the other an undisclosed legal matter.
   The council voted to go into closed session but Vulich left and remained in his office during the two-hour closed discussions.
   The Clinton Herald reports Vulich says he doesn't have to attend if he doesn't think it's appropriate. He says he's learned things through previous closed meeting lawsuits and doesn't "make the same mistake twice."
   He says whether he attends closed sessions from now on depends on the situation.
