Mercer County audit shows Sunshine violations

Sunshine Law noncompliance was among the findings by the Missouri State Auditor’s Office in an audit of Mercer County for the two-year period ending Dec. 31, 2009.
According to the auditor’s office, the Mercer County Commission held 31 closed meetings during that period and did not comply with various aspects of the Sunshine Law while documenting and conducting those meetings. Open minutes did not disclose the reason for closing 15 meetings, and minutes were not kept for three closed meetings.
Examples of topics discussed during closed meetings that did not meet the law requirements were equipment purchases and sales tax rollback calculations, according to the audit report.   –From a June 25 story in the Trenton Republican-Times
