Hillsboro city commissioners admitted Tuesday to a recent error in their meeting protocol despite insistence by Commission President Terry Sando that no mistakes were made. 

Commissioner Levi Reese called on his fellow commissioners to formally approve minutes for a “gathering” of city leaders, engineers and Loyal Avenue residents at 9 a.m. Aug. 17.

The item was not listed on Tuesday’s agenda but Reese said the presence of three commissioners qualified as a quorum.

He pointed to the fact that minutes of the so-called meeting had been posted on the city’s official website and noted on the city’s Facebook page. A video also was made of the gathering and posted on the city’s YouTube channel.
