The Louisiana City Council will consider a new ordinance at the Monday, March 12 meeting that would put them in compliance with the state’s Sunshine Law which guides open government meetings and records.
City Councilman Don Oakley introduced the ordinance at the Monday, March 4 council committees meeting. The ordinance would drop a blanket listing of possible reasons from the council’s agenda allowing the board to go into closed session.
Those reasons that appear on almost every regular meeting agenda include going behind closed doors to discuss personnel, legal action or real estate transactions.
City Clerk Sharon Kakouris said Tuesday, March 5 she had placed the ordinance before the board on the recommendation of the Missouri Attorney General’s office.
