Spring Mill found in violation of open meeting law

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The attorney general's office has concluded that the tiny city of Spring Mill in Jefferson County violated the state Open Meetings Act by holding special meetings in the mayor's home.

Assistant Attorney General James M. Herrick wrote in an opinion released Monday that Spring Mill officials also violated the law by not alerting the public to the meetings and by not posting the agenda.

Herrick said the question presented to the attorney general's office was whether Spring Hill City Commission violated the law failing to hold regular public meetings, opting instead to meet at Mayor Joseph Henning's residence.

Henning said the issue was resolved after an objection was made. Now, he said, the city commission is meeting at the courthouse on the second Wednesday of each month.
