KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Knoxville officials have begun offering training sessions for city board members after finding possible violations of the state’s sunshine laws.

The move stems from a public records request by the Knoxville News Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1ycCqPj) in relation to a proposed $9 million digital radio system being discussed by the Knox County E-911 Board of Directors. The newspaper reports the city gave it copies of emails that show some board members discussed the contract in private.

Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero announced on Feb. 12 that she had ordered Law Director Charles Swanson to review city appointees serving on boards and develop a training program for them.

City spokesman Eric Vreeland told the newspaper that some training sessions are now underway and more are planned.
