Board's E-mails Violated Open Meeting Law
The Essex County District Attorney's Office has determined that the Boxford, Mass., Board of Health violated the open meeting law when it deliberated policy issues through a series of e-mails sent between March and June 2008. Both Wicked Local and The Salem News have reports this week of the DA's ruling, which it issued Nov. 13. The e-mails discussed the formation of a horse-stables regulation committee and what its duties would be.
