The Airport authority held an emergency meeting yesterday with the contractor who affixed the sign to the wall, hours after the event. They used an exception in the open meetings law as an excuse to close the meeting to the public. AL.com reports:
Airport board attorney Kem Marks said the meeting was closed under an Alabama Open Meetings Act exception for issues pertaining to "security plans and measures."Brasfield & Gorrie representatives were there because of their knowledge of the terminal's construction, Marks said.The Alabama Open Meetings Act states closed sessions are allowed to discuss "security plans, procedures, (and) assessments," for what federal law calls "critical infrastructure." The law also states owners and operators of the critical infrastructure to be present in closed session.
There is no security issue here.
It's just convenient not to have people inside.
The people paid for the work
The people will have to pay for a settlement with the poor family.
