Louisiana City Officials Respond on Open Meetings
(LOUISIANA)– Louisiana officials say they’re responding to findings of the Missouri Attorney General.
The state last month chided the City Council for closing a September meeting and rejected a December claim by City Attorney Robert Rapp. Rapp agreed with the attorney general’s office that the closed session should have ended once discussion turned to Councilwoman Robbyn Morris, but said there was nothing improper about the meeting. Morris was later impeached.
Rapp also said he didn’t mean to imply that the state advised him to suggest the city consider lawsuits against people who file complaints.
Officials already have agreed with the attorney general’s recommendation to attend training on the open meetings law.
