St. Jo Suburb Accused of Open-Meeting Violation
COUNTRY CLUB VILLAGE, Mo. (AP) - Leaders of a St. Joseph suburb are accused of open-meeting violations.
The St. Joseph News Press reported that the Country Club Village must respond by Aug. 22 to a complaint being investigated by the Missouri Attorney General's office.
The complaint alleges that the village violated open-meetings laws by frequently holding meetings without proper public notice and canceling meetings without proper notice. The complaint also alleges that trustees use personal forms of communication that aren't disclosed to the public.
The community of nearly 2,500 residents is located about five miles north of St. Joseph.
