Alleged Open Meetings Violation Subject of Recall Petition

The Peninsula Gateway reports that a citizen alleging a violation of the Open Public Meetings Act has filed a recall petition against a commissioner of the Key Peninsula Fire Department (Pierce County Fire District No. 16).

Attorneys fees, a penalty, and invalidating the actions illegally taken in a closed meeting are not the only consequences of an Open Public Meetings Act violation. Recall is also possible.
