Sustained Outrage

Secret meetings, June 15, 2012

Today’s issue of The State Register lists one meeting that violates the public notice requirements of West Virginia’s open meetings law.

The entity involved? City Hospital Inc.’s Medical Staff Executive Committee.

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.
