The 60 hour period of restriction is found within a disaster declaration. There was NO notice to the public in the agenda there would be consideration of declaring a disaster. Read the agenda.

The supplemental agenda that did post reads, "Consider and take action regarding ban of fireworks due to the heat index and severe drought conditions". The supplemental item was posted LESS than 72 hours before the meeting.

There action is voidable for 2 reasons... notice to the public was defective and it was posted less than 72 hours before the meeting.
