City Attorney Tom Jacobson recommended the resolution in light of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision.
In the "Town of Greece vs.
Galloway," the court generally approved of such prayers but it also noted that they violate the First Amendment if they aren't used properly, according to Jacobson
said that if the council wants to continue having prayers, it must adopt a policy that respects people's First Amendment rights.
Later, Miller suggested that Jacobson
could rework the policy and present it to the council sometime in January, after two new council members take office.
