Columbia Borough Council agrees to stop routine private meetings amid transparency complaints

Council members verbally agreed to eliminate controversial private information sessions before each of council's two monthly voting meetings.

More info: Members previously met for 30-minute sessions behind the closed doors of Borough Manager Mark Stivers's office, an agreement reached during the reorganization meeting in 2020. Previously, council met for 60-minute private sessions. Those meetings drew complaints about Sunshine Law violations. Council members may not discuss any voting matter or any subject that will be discussed at a public meeting.
