All council members were present for the meeting. Prior to the beginning of the meeting, Southside Baptist Church pastor Robert Parrish led the prayer and Fayette County High School student Will Brown led the pledge. Fayette Mayor Rod Northam said that the past two years, Rushing had not received an extra $3,000 per year as she had received in previous years. He said that the $4,500 would be paid out of municipal court funds.
