DA clears Columbia of second Sunshine Act violation complaint

Heather Zink's complaint was the second such filing with the district attorney's office against Columbia in seven months. The first complaint, which was settled just over a month after the alleged violation occurred in November, led to a stern letter from the district attorney's office.

While the office declined to investigate the first complaint because it could not prove there was an intent to violate the act, it said a subsequent inquiry would result in an investigation.

At points, the warning letter sent to Columbia in December was word-for-word what the district attorney's office wrote to the Manheim Township School Board in 2016 for holding 11 closed-door meetings with little to no explanation for them.
