I've been wrong on this repeatedly, but it sounds like a closed session item at a special meeting of the Monrovia City Council this Tuesday, Aug. 19, may involve appointing a new city manager. Here's the item:
"Public Employee Appointment Pursuant to Government Code §54957: City Manager"
The "Pursuant to Government Code §54957" bit is just citing the California government code specifying when closed sessions are appropriate.
