Official seal of the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General

The Kentucky Attorney General issued the following open records and open meetings decisions last week:

1. 24-ORD-095 (In re: Saeid Shafizadeh/Louisville Regional Airport Authority)

Summary: The Louisville Regional Airport Authority violated the Open Records Act when it did not respond to a request to inspect records within five business days.

2. 24-OMD-096 (In re: Miranda Geers/Northern Pendleton Fire District Board of Trustees)

Summary: The Northern Pendleton Fire District Board of Trustees violated the Open Meetings Act when it conducted a closed session to discuss “personnel issues” because KRS 61.810(1)(f) does not authorize discussion of general personnel matters in secret. The Board also violated the Act by selectively admitting the fire chief to its closed session when it did not explain the reason for his presence.

3. 24-ORD-097 (In re: Aimee Perry/Eminence Independent School District)

Summary: The Office cannot find that the Eminence Independent School District violated the Open Records Act because it cannot resolve the factual dispute between the parties as to whether the records provided are different from the records requested.
