Friday morning, the Iowa Supreme Court is expected to release a decision that could dramatically weaken Iowa’s open meeting’s law.
Two years ago the Warren County Board of Supervisors decided to lay off 12 county employees.
The three-member panel did not deliberate in person or through email. Rather they reached their unanimous decision by having the county administrator relay messages among the three board members.
By communicating this way, the board supervisors hoped to skirt the state’s open meeting’s law.
