From news-journal.com:

Tatum’s city attorney says it was a mistake not to allow cameras and recorders in Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

Texas Attorney General’s Office guidelines say it is unlawful to ban such devices from open session in council meetings. Tatum Mayor Phil Cory issued the ban before Tuesday evening’s meeting.
