New requirements for posting meeting agendas online

The bill requiring cities to post agendas of regular city council meetings on the web, HB 2105, passed both chambers and is headed to the Governor for signature. AWC worked with the sponsor and others to make this bill workable for cities. Only cities with a website and at least 10 employees must post the agendas of regular city council meetings on its website 24 hours in advance of the meeting. Agendas may be amended after posted and failure to post an agenda does not invalidate an otherwise legal action nor provide a basis for awarding attorney fees or seeking a mandamus or injunction under the Open Public Meetings Act. The requirement will take effect in June 2014.
