Reporter interviews Roanoke Mayor Vincent Wheeler about an upcoming city council meeting at which a special committee will report on annexation. Citing several objections to the original plan for a closed meeting, the mayor reports that council will vote on whether or not the meeting will be open to the public and that this will likely set the precedent for future meetings on annexation. City Councilman Willis Anderson expresses his intention to leave the meeting if it not is conducted openly.
