OM 16-03 Tanner v. Bristol 4th of July Committee - Violation Found

Complainant alleged that the Committee violated the OMA when the agenda for the Committee's January 6, 2016, meeting failed to adequately state the nature of the business to be discussed, in violation of R.I. Gen. Laws 42-46-6(b). At the January 6, 2016 meeting, the Committee discussed and voted to shorten the Bristol Fourth of July Parade route, however, at no point in the agenda was the discussion and vote noticed, in violation of the OMA. The Committee acknowledged the deficiency in notice and took steps to remedy the violation.
