Request: Did the Frontier Village Association violate the open meetings law by failing to post notice of a special meeting?

Conclusion:         The Frontier Village Association held a special meeting on September 29, 2019. The meeting notice was provided to the county auditor but was not posted otherwise and was not provided to the newspaper or anyone else who had asked to receive notice. The agenda did not include the location for the meeting, did not state the time of the meeting, and failed to cite the legal authority for closing the meeting for attorney consultation. In all respects, the Frontier Village Association violated the law. The Frontier Village Association must amend its minutes to add detailed recollections of any conversations held during the meeting, and provide the minutes free to anyone who requests them.

Opinion: 2019-O-20
