Q&A: Post notice of public meeting?


From the Boonville Standard:

Q: Does a governmental agency have to physically post a public hearing notice, for instance on the main door?

A: The Open Door Law requires a governing body, in addition to giving the media 48 hours notice, to post a copy of the notice at the principal office of the public agency.

If no such office exists, the notice should be posted at the building where the meeting is held. See IC 5-14-.15-5.
