West Branch City Council to reconsider proposed rule

Posted:
WEST BRANCH (KWWL) -

The West Branch City Council will consider changes to a proposed rule that could limit recording council meetings.

The City Administrator suggested that people ask for permission before recording. Iowa's open meetings law allows for the use of cameras and recording devices during any open session but also says any governmental body can enforce rules to assure its meetings are not disrupted.

The City Administrator says the council needs to clarify the rule but his intention is not to stop people from recording the meetings.
