Understanding the Open Meetings Act (OMA) and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) as they apply to park districts and other local governments can be challenging, especially because these two statutes are frequently the subject of legislative changes and judicial decisions.
This handbook is designed to help Illinois park commissioners, executive directors, FOIA and OMA officers and other staff members navigate the increasingly complex laws related to public meetings and record disclosures. It does so by summarizing procedures and providing practical guidance and tips to reduce the risk of error. This guide covers a range of topics including:
Public Notices and Meeting Agenda Requirements
Conduct of Meetings
Open Meetings Exceptions
Exempt and Non-Exempt Records
Inspection and Copying Requirements
Commissioner Remote Attendance
