Norrell briefs City Council on recent court decision

By Jesef Williams

Is it OK for a governing body to change its agenda less than a day before a scheduled meeting?

According to a recent court decision, the answer is no – and Lancaster City Council was briefed on the case and how it could affect their proceedings.

Mandy Powers Norrell, attorney for the city of Lancaster, spoke during the Tuesday, July 10, meeting about a ruling issued last month by the S.C. Court of Appeals.

The hearing centered on Saluda County Council, which had been accused of illegally amending the agendas for its meetings.
