Individual members of the Board of Library Trustees may directly contact the library’s legal counsel under the following conditions:

  1. When directed to do so by the Board of Library Trustees or president. In this case, the library trustee initiating the contact should request the attorney's opinion through the President of the Board of Library Trustees or through the executive director.
  2. When ethics questions or concerns pertaining to the President of the Board of Library Trustees arise and a second trustee concurs. In this case, a copy of the attorney's opinion should be concurrently sent to the president and executive director.
  3. When sexual harassment is made by a library trustee and directed at another library trustee, the affected library trustee should contact the library's attorney to request an independent third-party investigation. In this case, a copy of the attorney's opinion may be sent to the president or executive director.

At no other time may an individual trustee of the Board of Library Trustees directly contact the library’s legal counsel.
