High Point Enterprise reports the grievance filed against HP City Manager Strib Boynton by human relations director Al Heggins as been resolved.
But —you guessed it —state personnel laws prevent personnel matters from public discussion:
City Council members said they were authorized to say nothing about the matter publicly other than that it had been “resolved.” Council has held multiple closed sessions to discuss personnel matters since the grievance was brought.
By law, any council vote in connection with the case would have to be taken publicly, in open session. Council has not taken any public action to date on the matter.
The employment status of Boynton and Heggins remains unchanged, according to the city.
Heggins also filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which has also been resolved.
