Does the notice of a meeting or executive session have to appear in the local newspaper?

Generally, no. The Open Door Law requires only that notice be posted at the regular business offices of the public agency or at the meeting place. In addition, the public agency is required to send the notice to the media who request it. Other laws may require that for hearings of the governing body, notice be published in the newspaper, but the Open Door Law does not require publication of the notice in the newspaper.
