Here’s what the Grafton Township Trustee’s law firm Ancel Glink had to say about the Thursday night meeting about mediating legal disputes:
Statement From Trustees through their Attorney.
<Requested to be Read Into the Minutes and to the Public by The Grafton Township Clerk>
August 2, 2012 1: 55PM
It is with disappointment that the Grafton Trustees are not be able to attend this evening’s special meeting as called by Supervisor Moore for the purpose of exploring a mediation solution.
While the Trustees are open-minded to engaging in mediation, neither they nor their attorneys were contacted about their availability for a meeting tonight by Ms. Moore, and this meeting was noticed without consideration of their unavailability.
Our attorney attempted to schedule a conference call with the mediator and John Nelson yesterday to select a date when all parties could participate, which is the usual process for scheduling a mediation session, but Mr. Nelson never returned her phone call.
She attempted to contact Mr. Nelson and themediator again today to establish a mutual date for mediation, but Mr. Nelson never returned her call and the mediator was unavailable.
However, she did notify both of their offices that she and the trustees were not available for tonight’s meeting.
We will continue to try to select a elate when all parties are available for mediation and will be happy to participate at that time.
