According to Bowen’s attorney Keith Williams, the city said Williams would not be allowed to attend, but Williams said he planned to try to attend the meeting anyway.
Williams said three years ago, when the case first began, he would have been allowed to attend the meeting, but current city charter rules allow the city to prohibit him from attending.
“I’m not sure if they made that change just so I wouldn’t be allowed, but it’s suspicious,” said Williams.
Lebanon human resources director Sylvia Reichle said more information would be released after the hearing.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
