Ex City Manger Scott Ochoa, who became Glendale's city manager in January, acknowledged he discussed with the council in closed session last December a desire to remove the city from the title of his Monrovia home.

Two problems
Not a legal item for a closed session
Not on the agenda
and as stated in the article the law specifically requires that un-represented employees compensation be discussed in an open session
and the (ex) employee attending the closed session is also illegal.
Pre open meeting discussions over coffee or in a closed session are illegal- the subsequent open session is no remedy for the violation/

Biggest Problem is the City attorney who would like to un-ring the bell
Can't be done

"If a Brown Act closed session violation is alleged, the remedy would be an open, public, discussion placed on the agenda, "which certainly happened here," Steele said, adding no action was taken in closed session and that all relevant documents have been released. "

Having a subsequent open and public discussion does not undo the prior illegal actions.

The City cannot just maintain that it never violated the law.

The City must first admit it's violations of the law.- or Have the Courts grant Declaratory Relief
The City must change its practices and procedures to prevent repeats.
Or Have the Court grant injunctive relief
