        PACIFIC JUNCTION - A Pacific Junction City Council meeting ended abruptly last Tuesday after the council failed to pass its agenda for the meeting.

At last Tuesday’s meeting, the council declined to approve the agenda. In Jim Lovely’s nearly 10 years as Pacific Junction mayor, this was the first time he can recall where a consent agenda failed to pass.
