Request: Did the Bismarck-Mandan Mayors’ Committee for People with Disabilities violate the open meetings law by failing to provide personal notice of upcoming meetings?

Conclusion: This office received a complaint from S. Paul Jordan that the Bismarck-Mandan Mayors’ Committee for People with Disabilities (BMMCPD) violated the law by failing to provide him with notice of its meetings. A public entity has a duty to provide personal notice to anyone who has asked to receive notice of its meetings.  The BMMCPD did not violate the law because it never received a request from Mr. Jordan to receive notice of its meetings.

Opinion: 2018-O-26
