“Open Government” is widely accepted as a desirable goal, but there are complexities and intricacies in implementing its principles. This session, by attorney Mark Schachner, focuses on planning and zoning decision-making at public meetings, communications outside of public meetings, site inspections and “FOIL-ability” of various planning and zoning documents. Other topics to be discussed include quorum considerations and recusal; informal gatherings with quorum present; executive sessions; and attorney/client privileged communications and discussions. There will be time for questions and answers.
