In the article headlined “City of Hearne in standstill” penned by Emily Wilkins of The eagle several key detail were left out leaving readers to believe that the city is in utter chaos.
First fact is at the time of the cancellation of the May 12 and May 14 council meetings there were 19 provisional votes outstanding. Since then 10 have been disqualified and 9 provisional have been counted. The final provisional ballot was counted Wednesday afternoon.
Since the May 12 and May 14 were cancelled a new meeting would have to be posted for 72 hours. The meeting Thursday was a violation of the open meetings act since that meeting had been cancelled. The “reposting” did not allow for 72 hours as prescribed by state law.
