OM 20-15 - GoLocalProv v. Providence City Council No violation

The Complainant alleged that the City Council violated the OMA when a working group convened outside the public purview. Based on the undisputed evidence, we found that no quorum of the City Council was present at the working group meeting and thus the OMA was not implicated with respect to the City Council. With respect to the working group, we found that it was not a "public body" under the OMA based on the totality of the undisputed facts, including that it is an informal ad hoc group that does not have any delegated authority. We accordingly found no violations.
