In a special called meeting of the Cadiz Finance Committee to discuss progress toward meeting budget projections for the 2005-2006 fiscal year, the emphasis was instead on prospects of returning a school resource officer (SRO) to the Trigg County Schools’ campus.

Chairperson Donna McNichols noted that the presentation by Superintendent Tim McGinnis, and the committee’s resulting discussion, were not on the agenda for the meeting. The discussion was apparently in violation of state law for public meetings.

Kentucky revised statute 61.823 reads, in part, that, “Discussions and action at [a special called] meeting shall be limited to items listed on the agenda.”

At Tuesday, Nov. 22’s meeting, which lasted approximately 75 minutes, the first 60 were devoted to the SRO issue.
