Hamburg Central School Board members were tight-lipped after emerging from a 2½-hour executive session Wednesday night concerning one of the board members.

Earlier, board nember Catherine Schrauth Forcucci had objected when the board voted to go into executive session “to discuss matters relating to a police incident that would imperil public safety if disclosed.” Schrauth Forcucci, who was asked by Town of Hamburg police to leave the district offices Sept. 24, said the reason given for the executive session was invalid.

“It’s already been disclosed, it was printed in The Buffalo News Saturday,” she told the board. “I don’t think there was a public danger.” She was the only one voting against entering into executive session. Six parents were invited into the closed meeting and spent about 15 minutes with board members. They declined to discuss what they told the board.

Board President David Yoviene declined to comment but said he thought some progress was made in board relations.
