BENHAM, Ky. (AP) — The attorney general's office has ruled that an eastern Kentucky city didn't give adequate notice of a meeting at which a new mayor was appointed.

The Harlan Daily Enterprise (http://bit.ly/VYcUwW) cited the opinion in reporting that the city did not give "adequate specificity" on its agenda for the Nov. 15 special meeting.

Resident Roy Silver, who took the issue to the attorney general's office, told the newspaper that the agenda said only that the meeting was being called for "personnel and projects."

Benham Mayor Shirley Dodd said she isn't sure what, if any, action the city will take. She said she is still reviewing the matter.
