But what was discussed there is unknown.

Jim Thomson, a Twin Cities-based lawyer representing the city of Bemidji in a dispute with Bemidji Township, acknowledged a meditation session took place but couldn’t discuss what happened.

The Bemidji City Council will have a closed meeting Monday night to discuss the pending litigation with the township.

The township filed a lawsuit in August alleging the city has repeatedly violated the joint resolution for orderly annexation.

The two sides have a scheduling conference set for May 31 with Beltrami County District Court Judge John Melbye, according to court records.
