Posting meeting agendas on city websites

AWC has been working with the sponsor of HB 2105 to ensure that any requirement to post regular meeting agendas on websites is workable for all cities. This week a substitute version of the bill passed the House Government Operations and Elections Committee. The substitute requires cities with a website and at least 10 employees (increased from the original requirement of 5 employees) to post the agendas of regular city council meetings on its website 24 hours in advance of the meeting. The substitute also clarifies that failure to post an agenda does not provide a basis for awarding attorney fees or seeking a mandamus or injunction under the Open Public Meetings Act.
