Sunshine Memo 11-9
Notice of Cancellation of Meeting
Requester asked whether a violation of the Sunshine
Law occurred in connection with a meeting held by the Hawaii Service
Area Board (HSAB). Specifically, Requester, who is a HSAB member,
asked whether a violation occurred because she was initially informed
that the meeting was cancelled and then later told the meeting would
be held, at which point she was unable to get a ride to the meeting.
OIP did not find evidence that a violation of the
Sunshine Law occurred. Although notifying members of the public
that a meeting was cancelled and then holding the meeting could
violate the Sunshine Law in certain circumstances, none of the accounts
(including that of Requester) states that any member of the public
was among those told that the meeting was cancelled.
