Open government has become contentious issue in Shawnee

From Shawnee Dispatch:

Some Shawnee residents, including at least one member of the City Council, say the municipal government has transparency issues.

Mayor Jeff Meyers, however, wants to make one thing perfectly clear: “I am super confident I did not break the Kansas Open Meeting Act (KOMA) rules.”

The mayor was responding to an online Dispatch report that the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office is investigating allegations that discussions by Meyers and members of the City Council of a recent appointment may have violated the KOMA.
