I have read the
articles in the Stow Sentry regarding the incomplete information of the School Board minutes.
When I checked the Ohio Sunshine Laws, the issue was made very clear to me. I read that a public body must keep full and accurate records, the minutes don't need to be a verbatim transcript, but include enough facts and information to permit the public to understand the rationale for the decisions made by the members made at the meeting.
In my opinion, the minutes approved by School Board do not conform to Ohio law.
When you take the oath to serve as either an elected official or a volunteer on a government commission, you must commit to following the laws of the state of Ohio.
