(Neb.) - Authorities say Gering violated open-meetings law
GERING, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Attorney General's Office says Gering violated state law on open meetings last fall.
Questions were raised about the council's Oct. 14 meeting. Among them was whether the council could go into a closed session regarding a complaint against Mayor Ed Mayo.
Mayo said the complaint had been made about his request for inventory audits from city department heads. The mayor says a closed "personnel session" couldn't be held because he wasn't technically one of the city's "personnel."
Bruning's office says the violation was rectified in December when the council took action in open session.
