AG Says Wayland Board Broke Open Meeting Law

The Massachusetts attorney general's office has ruled that the Wayland Board of Selectmen violated the state open meeting law in July when it voted in executive session to approve a traffic certification, according to a report by The MetroWest Daily News.

The board properly went into executive session to discuss traffic for a town project because it was subject to litigation, the AG said. However, it should have reconvened in open session to approve the traffic certification.
