RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada’s attorney general says a board overseeing the public swimming pool in Fernley broke the open meetings law when it failed to provide proper notice about a meeting called to correct a previous violation of the law.

Attorney General Adam Laxalt said Thursday the pool district’s board of trustees agreed to pay a $500 civil fine under a settlement agreement. But he says it’s been suspended as long as there’re no more violations for a year.

The initial error occurred in December when the board voted on the search for a new facility administrator.

The trustees immediately realized the action may not have been an “emergency” exempt from the law and scheduled a second vote in January.

But Laxalt says they failed at that time to note on the agenda that “corrective action” might be taken.
