— The Chapel Hill Town Council has scheduled a closed meeting to meet with the town attorney before their regular business meeting Monday.

The council will go into closed session at 5 p.m. Monday to "provide an opportunity for the chief of police, senior police legal adviser, and town manager to provide information and responses to Council questions and concerns arising out of the November 13 incident on West Franklin Street and issues that have arisen related to that incident," according to Ralph Karpinos, in an e-mail to the Town Council Thursday.

Karpinos says the council and officials will discuss matters related to personnel of "an attorney client nature" in the session, which is in accordance with the state Open Meetings Law.

Karpinos asked the council members to review reports by Town Manager Roger Stancil and Police Chief Chris Blue before the closed meeting, and said the council may also discuss the possibility of appointing an independent investigator to review the Nov. 13 raid on the former Yates Motor Co. building.

The town's Community Policing Advisory Committee is scheduled to ask the council for funding to hire an independent investigator during the council's public business meeting at 7 p.m. Monday.
