OM 14-02 Daniels v. Warwick Long Term Facilities Planning Committee No Violation

The Warwick Long Term Facilities Planning Committee did not violate the OMA when it held its November 15, 2013 meeting at a location that could not accommodate a large number of attendees. The OMA "does not require a public body to provide unlimited seating." See In re Town of West Warwick, ADV OM 99-02. Nor did we find any evidence that the Committee purposefully held the meeting at a location to minimize public attention and attendance.
