The 2009 General Assembly enacted S.L. 2009-350 (H 81) which amended the notice requirements set out in the open meetings laws. In general the amendments require public bodies that maintain webpages to post notice of regular, special and recessed meetings on those sites. In addition, the amendments clarify the requirements for posted and mailed notice of special meetings and for notice of emergency meetings. Public notice must also be given when land use planning is involved. For example, public notices must be given for public hearings involving Land Use, budgetary process, amendments to the Unified Development Ordinance and Town Ordinances.
