State Attorney Bill Eddins announced Thursday, August 18, 2016, that Four members of the Citizen’s Advisory Task Force, an advisory board to the Town of Century City Council, have been charged with noncriminal violations of the Florida Government in the Sunshine law.
Alfonzie Cottrell, Helen Mincy, Sylvia Godwin and Robert Mitchell have been charged for having a public meeting that was not properly advertised. On July 26, 2016, a meeting was advertised to begin at 4:00 pm. The meeting was actually held at 2:00 pm preventing the public from attending. In addition, a letter has been sent to the Town of Century recommending changes to their procedures to prevent this from happening in the future.
This case is set for arraignment on September 7, 2016.
