The three Jefferson County commissioners will consider a tolling agreement with a geoduck farm applicant when they meet at 9 a.m. Monday.
The meeting will be in commissioners’ chambers at the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St., Port Townsend.
Two executive sessions are planned: one at 10 a.m. to discuss potential litigation and one at 10:30 a.m. to discuss strategy or position for collective bargaining.
The agreement would be with BDN, which filed a tort claim against the county in 2018 but which plans to apply for conditional use permits which could potentially eliminate the need for litigation. The tolling agreement would allow a stay of the land use act appeal but would reserve the company’s right to appeal later.
Tolling is a legal doctrine that allows for the pausing or delaying of the running of the period of time set forth by a statute of limitations, such that a lawsuit may potentially be filed even after the statute of limitations has run.
