The Town Council did not consider a proposed public safety fee when it met in regular session on Tuesday, Aug. 13.

The meeting opened with Councilman Dennis Brown announcing that due to “new legal challenges that could possibly put the town at risk,” the item was being removed from the agenda.

Just prior to the session the council had been in a closed meeting and the fee was on the agenda to discuss with the town attorney.

The council gave staff no direction in the open meeting with regard to how to proceed.

The council had been prepared to consider imposing a public safety fee of $185 per year based on property parcels in town.
