The Vice-Chair noted that the board would move on to the hearing of Appeal Case
I.A.17-04 and the board would move into closed session for that hearing.

He asked if there was anyone in the room that was not directly related to the case being
heard. Mr. Nolan noted that he had a friend present as a character witness. The Vice-
Chair stated that unless he was present at the event in question he would have to be
excused from the room during the closed session. There was an exchange on this topic
between Mr. Nolan and board members.

 It was motioned by Mr. David Bukala that the board go into closed session. The motion

After hearing the appeal the board formulated a resolution and Mr. Bukala motioned that

Craig and passed with unanimous consent.

        - End Closed Session – 8:14 p.m.


Mr. David Bukala made the following motion: The board agrees with the disposition
from the Director of Public Safety that the complaint was sustained meaning that the

motion which passed with unanimous consent.
