BISMARCK, North Dakota — The North Dakota attorney general's office says the Lindahl Township Board of Supervisors violated the state's open meetings laws by not posting any notice of a December meeting.
Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem (STEN'-juhm) says the board in Williams County admits it did not post any notice before its Dec. 8 meeting. The attorney general's office says it doesn't appear the board was trying to keep it a secret.
Stenehjem says his office received a request for an opinion from Joel and Stephanie Vagts about the issue. Stenehjem said in a ruling Thursday that a township is a political subdivision, which means it's a "public entity" subject to open records and meeting laws.
The attorney general says the minutes from the meeting must be provided to the Vagts for free.
