The city of Davenport, Iowa says it never intended to change its Good Friday celebration to something called "Spring Holiday."
Residents flooded town leaders with calls after a suggestion by a citizens' Civil Rights Commission was circulated as fact.
City Administrator Craig Malin says the group submitted the idea to another leader, but it was never approved by the City Council.
Davenport City Council member Bill Edmond says he and other members were upset over the apparent name change. He says they were unaware of it until they saw an article about it in the Quad City Times last week.
"I fully support the Civil Rights Commission as does everybody in this city, everybody on this city council," Edmond told Iowa news station WQAD. "However, they were wrong this time."
Malin says residents of Davenport have nothing to worry about and the Good Friday holiday stands.
