From the Vevay Reveille-Enterprise:
Q: Is a school board member’s participation limited if he participates in the meeting by telephone rather than in person?
A: A member of the governing body of a public agency can participate in a meeting via telephone under IC 5-14-1.5-3(d) with some restrictions.
The telephone participant cannot be counted toward the quorum to hold the meeting and cannot cast a vote in a final action, unless the agency has statutory authority that allows for it.
