Local commissioner says town of Sandwich violated open meeting laws
The Board of Selectman in Sandwich Massachusetts is under fire this month following an open meeting law complaint filed by Barnstable County Commissioner Ronald Beaty.
Why do Massachusetts municipalities make meeting transparency harder than it has to be?
Getting several years of meeting minutes from Massachusetts cities and towns isn’t easy - but it would be if each municipality kept up with reviewing and releasing non-exempt minutes regularly. Like they’re legally required to do.
