Attorney Matt Smith says he asked for the hearing to be held at 5:30 p.m. or later, so more people could attend. He says the 2 p.m. start smacks of some sort of cover up.

"When the Oklahoma Open Meetings Act requires meetings like this be held at a time that's convenient and open to the public, it seems clear there is something to hide."  

City Attorney Jared Harrison set up the meeting. The person who answered the phone at his law office Thursday told News 9 he would have nothing to say to us.
