Oak Valley Hospital district board to redo CEO contract vote
Sacramento Bee

The Oak Valley Hospital District board of directors has put on hold last month’s decision to extend the chief executive officer’s contract after a government watchdog claimed it violated the state’s open meeting law.

The five-member board voted unanimously Wednesday to send the decision back to the district’s 10-member governing board, which voted Nov. 22 to add a year to Chief Executive Officer John Friel’s contract, extending it to October 2012.
