OM 15-13 / PR 15-40 Ranaldi v. Town of Narragansett Violation found

The Complainant averred that eight (8) meetings of the Ad Hoc Working Group on URI-Narragansett Student Rental Issues were not posted on the Secretary of State's website as required by the OMA, but the evidence established that the Complainant had attended two (2) of these meetings and two (2) other meetings had not occurred. No evidence was presented that the Complainant was aggrieved by any alleged violation and instead the evidence suggested that the Complainant viewed other notices on the Town's website. The Town did not violate the Access to Public Records Act when it failed to provide a copy of the September 10, 2014 minutes, since such minutes did not exist; but the Town did violate the OMA when its August 25, 2014 and September 29, 2014 minutes did not contain a record of the members present/absent.
