Springfield Aldermen Agree With Open Meetings Ruling


Springfield Alderman are responding to a ruling that all communication concerning official business, even if text messages are sent from personal cell phones, should be open.

 

Alderman Gail Simpson says that getting a text during council meetings is a distraction and sending messages to other elected officials during meetings can be problematic.

 

Ward 5 Alderman Sam Cahnman says he also doesn’t text during council meetings and that the Springfield City Council should be an open book under the open meetings act.

 

Champaign City Council is reported to be in the process of appealing the judges ruling.
