Selectmen's meeting on the up-and-up, after all

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 24, 2007 07:10 AM


The Board of Selectmen did not violate state open meeting laws when they signed documents over breakfast last month, the Middlesex District Attorney's Office found.

The MetroWest Daily News filed a complaint with the office, alleging that selectmen met at a police memorial breakfast on the morning of May 15 without posting notice.

The prosecutor's office said that selectmen did post for the event.

The office also said that the items selectmen dealt with were so routine that the breakfast did not even constitute a "meeting," as defined by state law.
