Issue Detail:

To: Northern Valley Board of Education Cc: Business Administrator October 8, 2012 Dear President Chan and Board Members: In response to my recent request for the school board\'s June 2012 Executive Session minutes, I received a faxed response which I\'ve placed on-line here. These minutes are deficient in several respects, and I ask that you review them with the Board attorney to see if your minutes-keeping, as well as the resolutions that the board uses to go into executive session comply with N.J.S.A 10:4-13 and 14, as construed by the courts. Of particular concern is the Board\'s discussion, at its June 11, 2012, 8:40 p.m. closed meeting concerning \"the OPRA request process and the need to review each request.\" This appears to be a general discussion and not tied to any particular item of pending or anticipated litigation. Thus, this discussion does not appear to be covered by any of the N.J.S.A. 10:4-12(b) exceptions, thus making it improper for discussion outside of the public\'s view. Please note that citizens, such as myself, are permitted to sue public bodies for injunctive relief when there is a pattern of non-compliance with the Meetings Act. Please be on notice that unless you conform your procedure, this violation may constitute the first documented instance of a pattern upon which future litigation may be based. Very truly yours,
