UPLAND - Upland City Council will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. today with the jobs of the city manager and city attorney possibly on the line.

The council will go into closed session to discuss three items regarding the city manager, listed on the agenda as "Public Performance Employee Evaluation," "Public Employment" and "Public Employment Appointment." A fourth item lists "Public Employee Discipline/Dismissal/Release" without reference to the position in question, and a fifth item is a performance evaluation of the city attorney. The meeting will be held at City Hall, 460 N. Euclid Ave.

Upland Councilman Ray Musser said he could not comment on the meeting in detail because it's a closed session dealing with personnel.

"They're all posted so we can discuss any item. It's covering all the subjects so that's all I can say at this point," he said.

The Daily Bulletin reported in December that City Manager Robb Quincey had negotiated a $25,000 settlement of an Upland police sergeant's lawsuit alleging he was passed over for a promotion because he had investigated a domestic incident with Quincey. The sergeant was promoted to lieutenant as part of the settlement.

The council recently discussed its contract with City Attorney William Curley's firm, but no action was taken. City officials had expressed concerns over the city's legal fees.

Calls to Quincey and Curley were not immediately returned Monday afternoon.
