A special session of the Rye City Council will be held Friday at 3:00pm regarding the legal counsel selected by the City of Rye Board of Ethics and Corporation Counsel in regards to the lawsuit initiated by Mayor Josh Cohn and his Gang of Four (Cohn and Councilmembers Carolina Johnson, Ben Stacks, and Julie Souza). The meeting will also be aired on Cablevision Channel 75 and Verizon Channel 39. We’ll also see you on the Internet (live and archive).
The resolution on the agenda is “to approve a waiver of any potential conflict of interest on behalf of the law firms to be retained respectively by the City’s Board of Ethics and Corporation Counsel in connection with litigation pending in Supreme Court, Westchester County bearing index NO. 62424/2023.” The items appears procedural but would indicate there has been no settlement between the parties.
