Description

"The Special Reports Unit used the entire news staff to review the closed-session minutes of area public agencies. Under New Jersey law, public officials, under certain circumstances, can meet privately but they must keep minutes of those meetings and release them once the issue they discuss is resolved. ... We found that one in three public entities provided either no minutes at all or minutes so lacking in detail, it was impossible to tell what was discussed."
