I have been advised by Councilman Noble that meetings of the MAC Ad Hoc committee were, in fact, duly advertised and open to the public in some manner. I just missed that. I apologize to the Town of Vienna for this posting. I was wrong.
Usually, when I make a mistake, I just strike through the original text. In this case, let me just erase it. So the story is that I accused the Town of violating FOIA because they did not hold open public meetings for the committee that drafted the amendments to MAC. The Town posted notice, on its calendar, for exactly two meetings of this Ad Hoc Committee. I’ll assume that’s all there were and leave it at that. I was incorrect and I apologize.
