Subject: Open Meetings Law


In response to your question, I checked the effective date of the amendment to Section 104 of the
Open Meetings Law regarding the posting of notice on a public body’s website. On May 12, 2009, the Governor signed into law the bill (S.2754/A.3169) adding subsection (5) to require that notice of a meeting be posted on the public body’s website (Chapter 26, Laws of 2009). It was effective immediately.

I hope that the information you received at the training was helpful and that you enjoyed your time there. If you have any further information or questions, please let me know.
