SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) –  An Inland Port Authority board meeting was canceled Wednesday night after a very disruptive protestor arrived at the meeting location.

The board issued the following statement:

“This evening an individual with a bullhorn and banners disrupted the Utah Inland Port Authority Board meeting.  After the chair explained they could be heard during the public comment period, the individual continued the disruptive behavior and the meeting was adjourned. The Authority meets monthly to conduct business, hear presentations from stakeholder groups and receive public comment. Unfortunately, none of this could happen including a presentation from the Great Salt Lake Audubon on a buffer zone for environmental preservation. It is regrettable when an individual obstructs the opportunity and rights of the general public to be heard. The Utah Inland Port Authority Board remains committed to working collaboratively with all interested parties to address growth and challenges in a productive and safe environment.”

The meeting will be rescheduled for a later time.
