Training for Kansas Open Meetings Act

Interesting article in the KC Star

Apparently, according to the article, the JoCo DA is going to hold a training class regarding the Kansas Open Meetings Act.

This has been prompted by an increase in complaints regarding possible violations of the act.  So far both Gardner and Mission have been found to have violated the act, and there is still an open investigation into whether or not Shawnee violated it.

This training session (Oct 18,  9- 11 AM) is also open to the public.

This is probably a step in the right direction.  The question on my mind is with the number of folks that have been invited to attend, and the training session open, how much can be accomplished in two hours?
