The following is taken from Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s website, Frequently Asked Questions concerning Open meetings Act, Page 5 of the 9 page document describes required recordings of meetings and subcommittee meetings.: [http://foia.ilattorneygeneral.net/pdf/FAQ_OMA_Government.pdf]
RECORDING OF A MEETING
Is the public body required to take minutes of its open meetings?
Yes. The minutes must include:
the date, time and place of the meeting;
a list of the members present and absent from the meeting, and whether they
attended in person, by phone, or by video;
a summary of the discussion of all matters proposed, deliberated, or decided; and
a record of any votes taken.
It is important to note that subsidiary bodies of public bodies (such as committees and subcommittees) are also required to take minutes of meetings.
A public body must make minutes of the meeting available for public inspection and post them on the public body’s website (if it has one) within 7 calendar days after the minutes
are approved by the public body. Typically, the minutes are approved at the next board
Why does the County’s website: http://www.boonecountyil.org/ not have minutes posted?
