Ancel Glink Q&A of the Month - November 2012

Question:  Who is to take the minutes of public meetings?

Answer:  Although the Open Meetings Act requires that minutes be taken of all open and closed public meetings, along with video or audio recordings of closed meetings, there is almost nothing in state law that directs any particular person or officer in any governmental body to carry out this task. In most governments, the minutes are taken by the municipal clerk or deputy clerk, or the person chosen as the secretary. However, the members of the corporate authorities or subsidiary body can generally choose a recording secretary or some other person to take the minutes.
