Ancel Glink Municipal Question of the Month

Question:  What happens if a news media outlet has been sent a notice of a meeting but that notice was not received?

Answer: The Opens Meetings Act states that the failure of any news media to receive a notice that was in fact provided in accordance with the Open Meetings Act does not invalidate the meeting. A little known section of the Open Meetings Act requires any news media to give the public body an address or phone number within the territorial jurisdiction of the public body at which this notice may be given.
