Residents form group to seek meeting minutes

From Quad-City Times:

CLINTON (IA) — A group of Clinton residents is working with the American Civil Liberties Union to gain access to minutes of closed city council meetings where the city’s $4.5 million settlement of a whistle-blower lawsuit was discussed.

Citizens for Open Government was formed last month by a group of people who supported the efforts of two candidates for city office who were seeking to have minutes of the closed-session meetings made public, said Marty Nischke, chairman of the group.
