Longport Borough Settles "Sunshine Law" suit
 

Issue Detail:

 
At its May 6, 2009 meeting, the Board of Commissioners for the Borough of Longport (Atlantic County) agreed to settle an Open Public Records Act and Open Public Meetings Act suit brought by John Paff, who chairs the New Jersey Libertarian Party's Open Government Advocacy Project. In his lawsuit, filed against seventeen Atlantic County municipalities last September, Paff complained that Longport failed to provide him with closed session minutes until several months after the closed session occurred, and that the Board of Commissioners privately discussed topics that were outside of the scope of topics that the Commissioners told the public would be privately discussed. In the settlement agreement, Longport's Board of Commissioners agreed to definite deadlines for production of its closed meeting minutes and agreed to more carefully identify the topics that they discuss privately.
