OM 17-29 Desrosiers v. East Providence Board of Assessment No Violation

The Complainant alleged the East Providence Board of Assessment Review's agenda for its December 6, 2016 meeting did not indicate the date, time and location of the meeting nor was it specific enough to inform the public of the nature of the business to be discussed. In response to this Department's inquiry, the Complainant indicated that he did not attend this meeting because he "didn't understand what was going to be discussed at the meeting." We concluded that the Complainant was not aggrieved with respect to his allegation that the agenda did not include the date, time and location of the meeting and therefore lacked standing to bring that aspect of the complaint. See Graziano v. Rhode Island State Lottery Commission, 810 A.2d 215 (R.I. 2002). With respect to his allegation that the agenda was not specific enough, we found no violation.
