He cautioned councilors to remain focused on the task and not bring any personal feelings about Anderson or his situation into the process that might cause the meeting to end up in a nonpublic forum.

Anderson had been on administrative leave since July 12, a day after an alleged incident at his Lane Road home involving a satellite TV salesman.
Derry councilors were torn in the aftermath of the Anderson case, some saying it was best to hire an outside firm to conduct the search. Others wanted to keep the process in house to save taxpayers money.
