BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the Langdon city commission violated state open meetings laws during two of its regular sessions in 2015.

Stenehjem says the commission started a meeting on May 26 an hour earlier than normal to accommodate the schedule of a consultant. The move was made without posting notice, as required by law.

At the commission’s regular meeting on June 8, the commission entered into an executive session to consult with its attorney on property tax assessments, and then voted on how to move forward on the assessments. Stenehjem says the commission did not follow the proper procedure prior to closing the meeting and should not have taken final action at that point.

The commission was ordered to provide detailed minutes of both meetings.
