County leaders are scheduled to receive a closed-door briefing on a threat to the building where they work.

Sheriff Sandra Hutchens plans to discuss “matters posing a threat to the security of the County Hall of Administration and other County buildings,” according to a memo she wrote last Thursday. Hutchens gave no further explanation.

The discussion is scheduled during Tuesday’s closed session meeting of county supervisors.
