Residents' concerns about borough council to be addressed at upcoming public meeting

From lancasteronline:

A group of Columbia residents worry borough council is violating the state’s open meeting law by holding information sessions in private prior to most of its public meetings.

Sharon Lintner, who helped create the Columbia Concerned Citizens group and who is running for a seat on council in the upcoming election, previously filed a complaint with the Lancaster County District Attorney's Office alleging council violated the state’s open meetings law, known as the Sunshine Act, when it voted in a closed-door November meeting to fund a proposed new position.


Columbia Concerned Citizens will hold its first public meeting Sunday, March 3, 2019. Former borough councilman Frank Doutrich, who helped organize the group, said he expected transparency to be a key issue discussed at the meeting.
Who: Columbia Concerned Citizens
What: Public meeting
When: 2 p.m. Sunday
Where: National Clock and Watch Museum, 514 Poplar St., Columbia
