The Maryland Open Meetings Compliance Board has recently stated that an e-mail discussion can be considered a “meeting” under certain circumstances if the discussion concerns the Village business. The Open Meetings Act requires “meetings” to be open to the public. Accordingly, e-mail discussions among a quorum (three) or more of the Council may violate the Act, if deemed a “meeting.” 

Due to this ruling and the advice of legal counsel, the Village Council has discontinued the use of the single google-group e-mail address that was previously used to correspond with all Council members at one time. Residents are still encouraged, however, to e-mail the Council members. We just want residents to be aware that a quorum of the Council may not engage in certain substantive discussions over email. (Please note that e-mails are considered public records, and generally open to public inspection under the Public Information Act).
