MISSOULA, Mont. - Missoula County Attorney Fred Van Valkenburg and other county leaders plan to meet this week to discuss options and a possible agreement with the Department of Justice.
Earlier this year the DOJ reached agreements with the University of Montana and the Missoula Police Department after investigations revealed some problems in the way they handled sexual assault reports.
Van Valkenburg's office has yet to settle with the department. He criticized the investigation when it launched in May 2012.
Tuesday, Van Valkenburg confirmed the DOJ presented a draft proposal for the county to consider.
Thursday, Van Valkenburg will meet with Chief Administrative Officer Dale Bickell, Risk Manager Hal Luttschwager, and Chief Civil Deputy County Attorney Marnie McClain.
The meeting is open to the public. Though Van Valkenburg noted that if "litigation strategy" is discussed the public will be asked to leave.
