BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says three senior services organizations in Richland County violated the state’s open meetings laws.

Stenehjem says the Southeast Senior Services Council, Wahpeton Harmony Senior Citizens Club and Richland County Council on Aging failed to properly notice meetings and take proper meetings minutes.

The issue came up when the board of directors for the three organizations held a special meeting to discuss the resignation of the group’s executive director. No agenda was prepared and no public notice was posted. The meeting began at 11 a.m., but because the director could not attend at that time, the board reconvened at 1 p.m.

The afternoon discussion included removing a director who was not able to attend the morning meeting and not informed of the afternoon session.
