Written on: July 31st, 2003 in 10001 Declaration of Policy

The Complainants alleged that the Town of Odessa (“the Town”) violated FOIA by discussing matters of public business at a meeting on June 2, 2003 without the required notice to the public. Held: the Town violated the public notice requirements of FOIA by discussing a substantial matter of public business at the June 2, 2003 meeting without adequate notice to the public. To remediate the violation and invalidation of the June 2 vote, the Town was directed to notice a meeting in strict compliance with FOIA to be held within thirty (30) days to discuss the forfeiture issue in public before taking any official action.
