Providing Notice

Notice Requirements

The Open Meeting Law (Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13D) divides meetings into three types: regular meetings, special meetings, and emergency meetings. Every public body is required to provide members of the public with notice of its meetings, regardless of the type of meeting. The same notice requirements that apply for any type of closed meeting would apply for the same type of open meeting.

Note about State Agencies

Minnesota Statutes, section 13D.04, subdivision 6, says that the notice requirements in the Open Meeting Law apply to meetings of state agencies only if a statute governing their meetings does not discuss methods for providing notice. Publication of notice in the State Register satisfies any publication requirement for state agencies.
