The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

PAINT ROCK | An Alabama mayor is back­ing down from an at­tempt to ban the me­dia and out-of-town­ers from coun­cil meet­ings.

Paint Rock Mayor Brenda Fisk told WAAY-TV that she is­sued the ban ear­lier this year with­out know­ing it would vi­o­late the law.

Ms. Fisk said she wanted to avoid City Coun­cil meet­ings be­com­ing a “cir­cus” like they did dur­ing a con­tro­versy over po­lice in the town of 200.
