MDOT Officials Won't Appeal Meetings Act Violation

Two Mississippi Department of Transportation commissioners say they won't object to a preliminary ruling that they violated the open meetings law.

Mississippi Ethics Commission Executive Director Tom Hood said Wednesday that Commissioners Bill Minor of the Northern District and Wayne Brown of the Southern District withdrew their objection to his decision.

Last week, when Hood's recommendation was released, the commissioners said they intended to object.

But Minor told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal newspaper Wednesday he's just ready to move on.

The finding concerned the commissioners' presence at an August dinner in Jackson in which they met with officials from Madison County and discussed an interchange project.
