“Two of the exceptions in §10-508 are designed to protect the privacy of individuals. One generally permits a meeting to be closed to “protect the privacy or reputation of individuals with respect to a matter that is not related to public business.” §10-508(a)(2). The other permits a meeting to be closed when the discussion deals with a “personnel matter” affecting one or more specific individuals. §10-508(a)(1). This exception includes discussion of possible personnel actions, compensation issues, and “performance evaluation of appointees, employees, or officials over whom [the public body] has jurisdiction.” §10-508(a)(1)(i). Like the other exceptions, this one is to be construed narrowly. It is inapplicable to discussions of issues affecting classes of public employees, as distinct from specific individuals”.
