Request:  Did the City of Velva violate the law by failing to properly notice a special meeting because it did not post the meeting notice at both the city auditor’s office and on the city’s website?

Conclusion:  A public entity is required to post notice of meetings at the principal location of the governing body, at the location of the meeting (if held at a different location), given to anyone who has asked to receive notice, and, for a city entity, also must file it with the city auditor OR post it to the city’s website. For special meetings, notice must also be provided to the official newspaper. The city of Velva properly posted the notice of its special meeting.
