Appointment sparks Sunshine discussion at Bronson Town Hall

A proposition to appoint Bronson Town Council's newest member as head of a proposed economic "strike team" was stymied Monday night due to procedural error, according to statements from town officials and staff.

Council Member Berlon Weeks told the council he would be uncomfortable voting to appoint Council Member Bruce Greenlee to the proposed Levy County Economic Development Strike Team Monday night, considering Greenlee was placed on the agenda for appointment prior to the council's consideration at that meeting.

Weeks said he felt the move violated the state's Sunshine Law, which requires decisions and meetings between elected officials be open to the public.

"I don't have a problem with you appointing Mr. Greenlee," Weeks told Mayor Franklin Schuler, who was listed on the item as requesting Greenlee's appointment. But, Weeks added, the matter should have come up before council first.
