Public Access Opinion 14-003


Open Meetings Act - OMA
Case: Public Access Opinion 14-003
Date: Monday, May 5, 2014

A public body posted its agenda 48 hours before a meeting as OMA requires. Then, it amended its agenda 29 hours before the meeting. The amendment deleted two action items upon which the public body would vote on at a later date. The intent of the amendment was to inform the public that the items would not be voted upon during the meeting as previously announced. In this case, the public still had at least 48 hours’ notice of the items for which the public body would take action. The PAC found no violation of OMA.

This opinion is binding only to the parties involved and may be appealed pursuant to State law.
