Burlco Prosecutor: Evesham official \"unwittingly\" violated Sunshine Act
 

Issue Detail:

 
In an August 4, 2011 letter to the attorney for the Eveham Township Council, Burlington County Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi said that \"Evesham Township officials did unwittingly run afoul of the prohibitions contained in the Open Public Meetings Act\" by discussing public business by way of e-mail communications. Prosecutor Bernardi, however, declined to impose fines against the officials because that it was a not a \"knowing\" violation and that \"educating public officials who may have mistakenly violated the provisions of the statute is far more effective than the imposition of nominal fines.\" The prosecutor\'s letter, which is on-line here, was sent in response to a complaint filed by the New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Open Government Advocacy Project. John Paff Somerset, New Jersey
