The Jefferson County Board of County Commissioners agenda for Monday, December 19, includes an Executive Session scheduled for 10:15 to 10:45 a.m., to be followed by an open session (open to the public) to discuss the status of settlement negotiations with PLA about the 2015 timber harvests in Port Ludlow, including “Possible Deliberation and Action on a Settlement Agreement and Release of Claims.”

We do not know at this time whether the commissioners will allow public comment at that session on any proposed settlement agreement, but persons interested in the timber harvesting issues may wish to attend.

The commissioners will, as usual, invite public comment during the Monday morning Public Comment Period beginning at 9:01 a.m.  The commissioners meetings are held on the ground floor of the Jefferson County Courthouse in Port Townsend.
