SIOUX FALLS, SD -
The South Dakota Open Meetings Commission meets Monday in Sioux Falls to consider complaints against two state boards and a county panel.
The commission will hear complaints against the state Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners, the state Board of Massage Therapy and the Union County Weed Board.
The commission is made up of five state's attorneys. If the commission finds that a state or local board has violated the open meetings law, it can issue a public reprimand.
South Dakota law requires that state and local boards and commission must provide public notice of meetings at least 24 hours in advance.
Those panels can meet in closed sessions only to consult with legal counsel or to discuss issues dealing with personnel, students, contract negotiations or publicly owned businesses.
