Public records request withdrawn in Pell City, Alabama

From The Daily Home

PELL CITY — The Daily Home withdrew its request for public records after the city attorney said Tuesday the person the newspaper sought records about officially withdrew his application for city manager.


The mayor and council denied that they broke the Open Meetings Act because there was never a quorum, or a majority of the City Council present during the interview process. Instead, the council met and interviewed the city manager candidate in smaller groups, sidestepping the requirement to notify the public of the meeting.
