Secret meetings, Aug. 10, 2012

August 10, 2012 by Ken Ward Jr.

Today’s issue of The State Register contains one meeting that violated the public notice requirements of West Virginia’s open meetings law. The agency involved? The Board of Respiratory Care.

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.

    Are there any penalties they receive if they fail to do this? It seems to me there isn’t ontherwise there wouldn’t be any failures of notification.
