UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — The first commissioners' meeting of 2015 adjourned after 15 minutes in one western Pennsylvania county because the government hadn't placed legal advertisements listing the time and dates of this year's meetings.

The Fayette County commissioners, instead, pointed fingers at one another — and the county's chief clerk — about who was to blame for not placing the ads.

Chief Clerk Amy Revak says she emailed the commissioners Vincent Zapotosky, Angela Zimmerlink and Al Ambrosini on Jan. 13 seeking authorization to place the ads, but got no response.

But Zapotosky says Revak also didn't place the ads last year, forcing the cancellation of a meeting in May. He argued that Revak should know to place the ads without authorization.

The meeting was canceled when a resident pointed out that the meeting hadn't been advertised.
