Under a Kansas Open Records request, district officials disclosed a Finance Committee meeting has been scheduled for the last week of July. Information received indicates the meeting will be July 30 at 3:45 pm in Board Room C.
According to minutes of a September 2009 meeting, the “original intent of the committee was to help provide transparency for public eyes on how funds were being handled.”
Because only two board members – Ron Ragan and Mike McNulty – serve on the committee, meetings are not subject to the Kansas Open Meetings Act. Public notice of meeting dates is not required, although officials will supply the information if asked.
