No action was taken by the board of directors at a closed session for the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District on Friday. Although all five directors were present, no action was taken on agenda items during the closed session, said Karna Harrigfeld, an attorney with Herum Crabtree, who acts as legal counsel for the district.
The agenda for the meeting said directors would discuss employee discipline or dismissal. District general manager Ed Steffani said in a letter to the News-Sentinel he was the subject of the closed meeting. Steffani announced his retirement from the district months ago and is in the process of finalizing reports and clerical work.
