Did the special meeting violate the Brown Act? Widmer and McKeithen co-wrote the letter in the staff report calling for a vote for the meeting.

How did they inform Dobbie they were calling a special meeting to change their vote to yes on a town wide vote? If three council memebers discuss an item on an agenda, prior to the council meeting; that is a Brown Act violation.
