George, IA (AP) — Officials in George cancel a City Council meeting after a clerk mistakenly places a proposed gun ban on the agenda.

The agenda for Wednesday’s City Council meeting included a proposal to ban firearms on public property.
The item led a gun rights group to post an item on Facebook, urging resident to protest the proposal.
City Attorney Dan DeKoter says the matter was a mistake.

City officials had discussed whether to control guns on city property after a man displayed a weapon in the public library. However, DeKoter says a new city clerk mistakenly listed the ban on the council agenda and published it in the newspaper without consulting the mayor or council.
Officials opted to cancel the meeting.
