OM 16-11Tanguay v. City of Warwick - Violation

The City of Warwick violated the OMA when it failed to record complete meeting minutes for two vicious dog hearings on May 9, 2012 and October 7, 2015. The documents submitted by the City included the date, the three panel members present and the vote for specific requirements, however, neither set of minutes contained the "time" the meeting was convened and the May 9, 2012 minutes reference a 2-1 vote, yet fail to contain a "record by individual members of any vote taken" as required by R.I. Gen. Laws 42-46-7(a)(3).
