Coffee County Sunshine Law

A state spokesman says a called meeting by the chairman of the Coffee County Board of Human Resources was a violation of the Sunshine Law.

In a prepared statement, the Department of Human Resources in Montgomery states that the Tuesday night meeting in Enterprise did not comply with the elements of the open meeting law and that the meeting had to be posted in a public place for at least 7-days prior to it being held.

It was reportedly called to discuss the employment status of the Coffee County DHR director.

DHR chief legal counsel says the board was meeting in violation of the law.

Once informed about possible violation of the Sunshine act, each board member left the building.

The meeting never actually took place.
