According to an article in the Watauga Democrat, the Boone Town Council voted in closed session. The appropriateness of the illegal action is not what is aggravating the affected party. Members of Boone’s Culture Resource Advisory Board found out about their ouster not via a courteous memo, but through a mass media broadcast. They were further told votes in closed session are irrevocable.

The council decided to revoke the CRAB’s license to use a town-owned facility in Daniel Boone Park, citing electrical code violations. The CRAB had been producing an outdoor drama, “Horn in the West,” there for 67 years.
