MISSION, Kan. - The Johnson County District Attorney has determined the Mission City Council violated the Kansas Open Meetings Act.
It came after a complaint was filed regarding the city's purchase of the Neff building in Mission.
Last July, the Mission City Council met in an executive session, not open to the public, and approved the purchase of the former printing facility.
Since that meeting was held behind closed doors, some argued the sale and possibly many others may be illegal.
In a letter sent Friday to the Council, the D.A. confirmed the Council did violate open meetings rules.
The mayor and city council will have to attend training within the next six months to make sure members understand the rules of open meetings.
If they fail to do so, council members will likely receive further punishment.
