PADUCAH, Ky. - A Louisville attorney says Wednesday's Paducah Area Community Reuse Organization meeting violated Kentucky's open meeting laws.

A seven-member committee met to discuss two proposals for the takeover of PACRO's administrative contract.

Jon Fleischaker told the Paducah Sun that an agenda was not posted at least 24 hours in advance of the gathering. He added that any vote had to be taken in view of the public, not in a closed-door session.

Fleischaker said if it can be proven that members of the full committee used the subcommittee's recommendatiion, it could be voided in court.

Paducah Mayor Gayle Kaler said the subcommittee recommended that Paducah Economic Development take over PACRO's operations. The McCracken County Fiscal Court also expressed interest.

PACRO's Executive Committee meets Thursday afternoon at 4:30.
