AG says Bowdon City Council meetings violated law

Associated Press

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has ordered the City Council in the central North Dakota town of Bowdon to provide minutes of meetings he says violated the state's open meetings law.

Stenehjem says a special council meeting in June held before a regularly scheduled meeting was not advertised, and a special meeting in August was advertised with the wrong date.

The attorney general says a third council meeting, in June, that also was in dispute did not violate the law because a quorum of the council was not present.
