We missed last week, so today we’ll do a roundup of open meetings violations for the last two weeks.
First, in last week’s State Register, there was one meeting that did not comply with the public notice requirements of West Virginia’s open meetings law. The agency was City Hospital. This week’s Register included open meetings violations by the Family Protective Services Board, the Lincoln County Economic Development Authority, the Region II Planning and Development Council, and the Statewide Independent Living Council.
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.
