OM 13-26 Boss v. Woonsocket Budget Commission (No Violation)

There was insufficient evidence to establish that the Woonsocket Budget Commission ("Budget Commission") held a meeting with members of the Woonsocket School Committee to discuss the Complainant's job performance under Rhode Island General Laws § 42-46-5(a)(1). Further, Complainant alleges that the Woonsocket Budget Commission failed to post notice of the February 19, 2013 meeting within forty-eight hours as required under the OMA, but the evidence demonstrates that Complainant had actual notice of that meeting. See R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-46-6(b). Since the Complainant does not allege any other grievance or disadvantage, the Complainant was not aggrieved in this instance. See Graziano v. Rhode Island State Lottery Commission, 810 A.2d 215, 222 (R.I. 2002).
