OM 14-11 Rider v. Foster Town Council - No Violation

The Complainant alleged that the Foster Town Council ("Town Council") violated the OMA when the agenda item for the November 21, 2013 meeting did not specify the nature of the business to be discussed. Since the Complainant attended the November 21, 2013 meeting and did not demonstrate that she was aggrieved, this Department concluded that she did not have standing to raise the allegation. See R.I. Gen. Laws 42-46-8(a); Graziano v. Rhode Island State Lottery Commission, 810 A.2d 215 (R.I. 2002).
