Voting yes on the motion to hire an attorney were Chair Andy Larson, Beth Pfingsten and Brainerd City Council member Kevin Goedker. Members Brad Davis and Crow Wing County Commissioner Rachel Reabe Nystrom were absent. Member Rick Adair, who is serving as interim airport manager recused himself from voting.

Czeczok asked for clarification on Adair’s vote and said that he should have stated his reason for abstaining from the vote. Olson did not address the commission.

After the meeting Larson said the commission wanted to hire an attorney so that it would have ongoing, consistent legal advice.
