Sustained Outrage

Secret meetings, May 27, 2011

We missed last week, so today we’ll take a look at meetings listed in the State Register for last week and this week.

Last week’s Register listed just one meeting that violated the public notice requirements of the state’s open meetings law. The agency? The state Personnel Board.

This week’s edition contained no meeting that violated the public notice requirements.

As we’ve reminded folks before, the West Virginia Open Governmental Proceedings Act requires agencies to send meeting notices to the Secretary of State in time for notices to appear in the State Register five days prior to a scheduled meeting. Every week, we list the agencies that didn’t comply, thanks to the Secretary of State’s office, which kindly marks those agencies with an asterisk in the list of meetings published each Friday in the Register.
