Kootenai County Commissioners met behind closed doors Monday to discuss what they consider to be imminent litigation between the county and its land use consultant, Kendig Keast Collaborative. Commissioners went into executive session with Civil Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Pat Braden to discuss potential legal issues, but would not confirm who was expected to file a lawsuit. ... Under Idaho's Open Meeting Law, commissioners cited section 67-2345(1)(f) which allows the commissioners to meet in private specifically: "To communicate with legal counsel for the public agency to discuss the legal ramifications of and legal options for pending litigation, or controversies not yet being litigated but imminently likely to be litigated..." Commissioner Todd Tondee was able to confirm that neither party has filed suit yet, but a lawsuit is likely to arise concerning the proposed Unified Land Use Code, which Kendig Keast was hired to develop/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.
