Kate Smith, who is a regular at many local government meetings, was taken into custody on suspicion of disrupting a public meeting and resisting a peace officer, said Sgt. Andy Feller.
The incident occurred at about 2:30 p.m. at City Hall, where Smith was refusing to leave the podium, Feller said.
The microphone was shut off, and the meeting halted while officers tried to get Smith to leave, Feller said.
She was then taken into custody, and the meeting resumed.
