Today’s issue of the State Register has two meetings listed that did not comply with the public notice requirements of the West Virginia open meetings law.
The agencies at fault?
— The West Virginia Board of Optometry, for a meeting that started at 8 a.m. today.
–Â The Water Development Authority, for a meeting on Monday.
As weâ€™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 didnâ€™t comply, thanks to the Secretary of Stateâ€™s office, which kindly marks those agencies with an asterick in the list of meetings published each Friday in the Register.
