Disclosure of Executive Session Actions Under Open Meetings Act
(28) Under an amendment to the Open Meetings Act passed by the General Assembly, effective July 1, 1989, public bodies subject to the Act which conduct business under exemptions specified in the Act must, at least every six months, determine whether the need for confidentiality still exists with respect to each item considered under such exemption. Attached are copies of the minutes of the executive sessions of July 1992 through July 1993. The university counsel and the secretary of the board, after consultation with appropriate administrative officers, have recommended that certain items considered in the periods covered should retain their confidential status, e.g., pending litigation in February and May of 1993; and that all other items considered in those sessions be released to the public. (Attached materials are filed with the secretary of the board for record.)
