Cynthiana Mayor Jim Brown anticipated negotiating the city's contract with Harrison County Water Association in a closed session at the conclusion of Tuesday's city commission meeting.
However, John Lair, city attorney, advised the mayor and commissioners that a contract negotiation was not accepted for closed session under the Open Meetings Act.
The Kentucky Open Meetings act is designed to keep the public's business open to public scrutiny.
Harrison County Water Association purchases its water from the city.
