Mayor requests Sunshine reading

The St. Joseph City Council met behind closed doors in December with the city manager and a representative of the state auditor’s office to discuss the state of St. Joseph’s finances.
The mayor asked a St. Joseph News-Press reporter to read out loud the Missouri Sunshine Law provision that allowed the meeting to be closed. He said he asked for the reading so council members could explain the reasoning to citizens who were concerned that the meeting was not open.
Todd Schuler, an audit manager for the state auditor’s office, said he would not discuss the audit unless the council voted to close the meeting.
All but two of the council members and the mayor voted to close the meeting, at which point the reporter and another visitor left the room. One council member abstained from voting, another was absent.
