Sunshine Memo 11-1
Sufficiency of Notice, Agenda and Minutes; Executive
Requester alleged various violations of the Sunshine
Law by the Neighborhood Commission, City & County of Honolulu.
Requester asked OIP to investigate whether the Commission had violated
the Sunshine Law, and, if so, to determine whether these violations
present a pattern that rises to the level of intentional misconduct.
OIP found that the agenda and minutes reviewed
revealed violations of agenda and minutes requirements at various
meetings over the course of the approximately four and a half year
period Requester identified. However, OIP did not believe that the
deficiencies reviewed, alone, showed a pattern of violations that
rose to the level of intentional conduct. Further, not all of the
issues raised by Requester were violations of the Sunshine Law.
