City Council tables issue of extreme importance to allow four weeks more for public comment
City council just tabled issue of whether to film and broadcast meetings of the council's nominating committee for boards and commissions. The argument is simple. Going back to the INTENT of the journalists who fought decades ago to get a freedom of information act in Arkansas, NO TWO COUNCIL Members should ever discuss an item of business privately. Four members of the council (one from each fayetteville ward) should ever discuss or make a decision on who to appoint in private. And it the responsibility of the govt. channel to make sure that no one in city government violates that goal.
