Hearing on Forrest City School Heating Problems Delayed Amid FOI Dispute

MARCH 7, 2007 - Posted at 7:37 a.m. CST

 

FORREST CITY, AR - A manufacturer's objections to the presence of a reporter listening to a teleconference prompted Forrest City Superintendent Lee Vent to call off a meeting rather than hold the discussion in private.  The teleconference Monday was set up to discuss problems with heating and air-conditioning units at Forrest City High School.

Vent told Ron Hanlon, a regional vice president for the manufacturer, McQuay International, that the meeting had to be held in an open forum.  Hanlon had objected to the media's presence and asked to speak with Vent alone.

Vent declined, and told Hanlon any meetings on the matter would be public.
