BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says city councils from Belfield and Crosby violated the state’s open meetings laws with discussions that took place during executive sessions.

Stenehjem says the Belfield city council violated the law when it went into executive session to talk to the city attorney about potential liability concerns and also discussed general personnel issues and took final action to fire an officer.

The attorney general says the Crosby council made a mistake when it held a closed-door meeting to consult with its attorney and discussed the possible overcompensation of two city employees and policies to avoid potential future overpayments.

The council then voted on a motion made during the session but did not disclose the contents of the motion or engage in further discussion.
