MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A meeting of the trustee selection committee for Auburn University scheduled for Thursday in Montgomery has been canceled because not enough public notice was given.
The five-member committee headed by the governor will now meet Jan. 18.
Auburn posted the meeting Monday on the state's open meetings website. The governor's press secretary, Jennifer Ardis, says the state's open meetings law required seven days' notice.
Notice of the rescheduled meeting appeared on the website Wednesday.
The selection process for nine trustees was halted last year when a former alumni association president, Andy Hornsby, filed a suit claiming the open meetings law was not followed in the selection process. Hornsby dropped the suit when the governor said state officials would start over on the selection process.
