LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio judge will decide whether officials in a suburban township violated state laws with informal sessions ahead of their public meetings.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1aJV8aW ) reports that a Clearcreek Township resident is challenging the gatherings in the township administrator's office under Ohio open meetings laws, also known as "Sunshine laws."
He says there was no notice given to the public and no record of what was discussed.
Testimony was expected to begin Thursday in Warren County Common Pleas Court.
