BREAKING NEWS: Knox County School Board Violates Sunshine Law Tonight

I attended the public meeting at Carter High School concerning the East County Sector Plan update. Brian's Blog will be posting reports tomorrow detailing the meeting. However a count revealed 159 individuals attending. Eight of them were known not to be from East Knox County. Two were from South Knox County and six from West Knox County (which would include your truly)

At the beginning of the meeting at 6, it was announced that they had a limited time to meet. That the Knox County School Board would be needing the auditorium at 8 for a meeting. A research of media advisories do not reveal that a school board meeting had been called for Carter High School after 8 this evening. So, are they violating the sunshine law? I had a previously booked appointment and had to leave by 7:20 p.m. so I was unable to stay to cover the school board meeting.
