WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem found that three Richland County organizations violated state open meetings law in conducting two special meetings in November.

The Wahpeton Daily News reports ( ) that the Southeast Senior Services Council, the Wahpeton Harmony Senior Citizens Club and the Richland County Council on Aging held a special meeting on the morning of Nov. 20 to discuss the resignation of the executive director.

Board members were notified of the special meeting by phone and email. No agenda was prepared and no public notice was posted.

The board held another meeting in the afternoon and decided that the executive director would stay and a board member would be removed.

Stenehjem found that minutes from those meetings failed to meet requirements of the North Dakota Century Code.
