At the final Pahrump Town Board meeting held December 10, Acting Chairman Steve Rainbolt announced that the subject of the business license would not be discussed under the agenda item titled "Old Business." Rainbolt, acting " as chair in the absence of Charlotte LeVar, out of town oh busi- ness, recog- nized the need to not waste time discussing the business license under that item. Instead, Rainbolt de- termined that any comment CIVILDISOBEDIENCE?- NCSO Sergeant EdHowardpreparestoescortA! Pryor away from town board members. Pryor was upset with Acling Chairman Steve Rahaboit's recognition that conunents tzgarding the business license must wait for Public Conunent. regarding the once controversial license would have to wait until Public Comment, A! Pryor has been an adamant opponent of the license for over two years. The 73 year old retired welder has fought for license reform and his relentless attacks regard- ing the legality of the ordinance is considered to be instru- mental "in Rainbolt's efforts to place the license on the November election ballot as an advisory question. How- ever, Pryor's efforts have resulted in the controversial matter coming close to settlement. It should also be noted that voters overwhelmingly embraced the practice of licensing area businesses. Pryor rejected Rainbolt's recognition that the business iicense need not be addressed until the statutorily required Public Comment (there is no law requiring open meeting agendas to contain an Old Business item). Pryor approached the dais where town board members are seated. Whether or not his action constituted a threat to Rainbolt or other members of the board is subject to interpretation. However, NCSO Ser- geant Ed Howard came forward and peacefully es- corted Pryor outside. A few minutes later, local activist" Paul Miller ap- proached Howard and demanded the Sergeant file a citation against Rainbolt for a violation of the Nevada Open Meeting Law. Howard refused. In a discussion with Nye County Chairman Cameron McRae, in attendance as is his custom, McRae explained that Rainbolt was "well within the parameters of his chairmanship." Pryor was not denied his right to free speech and no material in the Nevada Open Meeting Law reveals such was the case. Enforcement and regulation of the Pahrump Business License will be addressed at the budget hearings which will be conducted beginning in January. In the meantime, Rainbolt has expressed that he would never deny "AI Pryor or any other non-abusive citizen hir right to speak" under.the Public Comment item.
