Several meetings have been held in the city of Barbourville recently. While regular meetings happen on schedule, special-called meetings can often happen during any given month.
That has been the case with Barbourville City Council in the last several weeks. Most often, council members are tasked to call special meetings.
However, the meeting which occurred Feb. 24 was not called for by members of the city council, according to council members Gary Williams and Wilma Barnes.
At that meeting, city attorney Charley Green Dixon outlined the state auditor’s findings and what was being done to implement the auditor’s recommendations.
“We did not know that was going to happen that night,” Williams clarified. “We never saw anything (that we were told) was implemented.”
He added that no council members received a copy of what Dixon had reviewed for council members and city residents that Feb. 24 meeting.
