If the phone rings and nobody answers it, is the call still illegal?
Elsberry Special Road District Commissioner Larry Wheeler
In past issues, The Elsberry Democrat has reported on possible violations of the Missouri Sunshine Law with regard to the manner in which the Elsberry Special Road District [E.S.R.D.] posts meeting notices, creates meeting agendas, conducts meetings and justifies going into closed session.
Pursuant to these possible violations Michael Short, Managing Editor of The Elsberry Democrat, contacted the Missouri Attorney General’s Office and filed a formal complaint.
The investigation resulting from that complaint has now been completed and a copy of the results was provided to Short in a letter dated July 30.
