Open Meeting Law 1 V.S.A. 310-314 Vermont’s Open Meeting Law provides that:
“[all meetings of a public body are declared to be open to the public at all times, except as provided in section 313 of this title [on executive sessions].” The intent of the law is to create transparency in government by requiring advance public notice and an opportunity for public participation in governmental decisions. The law generally applies whenever a majority of the members of a municipal board, council, commission, committee, or subcommittee have a conversation or make a decision about municipal business.
