Open Meetings in Putnam Valley!

“Under the new laws, open meetings will be required to be held in venues that are large enough to accommodate the general public when possible, and state and local governments must establish specific rules for photography, audio and video recording at meetings.

Also, the courts can now require violators of the Open Meetings Law to attend mandatory training sessions with the state Committee on Open Government.”

Could this be the end of backroom meetings for the Planning Board?  Could it be the end of the improperly called executive sessions on “litigation?”

How many times will they have to go to the training sessions if they continue their flagrant violations?
