He said it may or may not relate to the college’s contract with college president Stan Jensen.”The trustees would like a little more knowledge about all matters related to personnel,” Davis said, explaining Friday’s move to retain the law firm.Also on the agenda for Monday’s board meeting is approval of the financial audit, certification of the CMC property tax mill levy, a resolution on spending year-end reserves, approval of the 2012-14 strategic plan, further discussion of criteria for recognizing employee domestic partnerships and planning for the board’s trip to Washington.
