BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the Fargo Park Board violated state law when it failed to provide notice about one of its meetings.

The Feb. 15 meeting involved a committee of two commissioners and three members of the general public who were considering candidates for executive director.

The group did not believe it was subject to open meetings laws because there was not a quorum of board members on the committee.

Stenehjem says when a governing body delegates authority to two or more people to perform any function on its behalf, the committee is subject to open meetings laws.
