North Dakota attorney general says ambulance board failed to give proper notice for meetings


BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the Garrison-Max ambulance district board violated state law by failing to give proper notice for meetings.

The dispute involved the rescheduling of the board's monthly meeting and the scheduling of a special meeting, both in May. Although the board posted meeting notices in its main offices and notified the official newspaper, Stenehjem says the group violated the law by failing to notify the Garrison or Max city auditors of either of the meetings.

In a related ruling, Stenehjem says the board did not break the law when it communicated by text messages and email about the meeting schedules. He says there were no attempts to build support or consensus and no opinions were shared in the exchanges.
