HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)– Problems with the heating system at the Athens Police Department did not stop council from holding their meeting Monday evening, but those who attended were encouraged to dress warmly.
Monday afternoon Athens city leaders had signaled they would move the meeting to another building but the city attorney advised the city against that decision since there was not adequate public notice for the change in location.
City officials say they are dealing with a heating problem in the building. Our WHNT News 19 crew reported the temperature inside the building Monday afternoon was hovering around 60 degrees. Some employees have brought in portable heaters and are wearing jackets.
