Mount Gilead Commissioners to learn more about “open meetings”

Mount Gilead Town Commissioners are making plans to learn more about the rules of open meetings.

At their meeting Tue., Sept. 10, commissioners set a tentative date to meet and become more familiar with North Carolina’s open meetings laws, sometimes called “sunshine laws”.

The purpose of the laws is to provide a framework within which meetings of governmental bodies are conducted with uniform transparency and full disclosure to the public and press.

Commissioners have each received a copy of a book on the subject, and the meeting has been tentatively scheduled for Sat., Sept. 28, at 9 a.m. at the Mount Gilead Public Library. The public will be welcome to observe the session.

Earlier this year, Rob Shepherd of the League of Municipalities presented a workshop for commissioners in which they learned more about the roles and responsibilities of various offices within town administration.
