Ohio Sunshine Law 101

This article, written by attorney and former Cuyahoga SWCD board member Amiee Lane, provides a concise description of the Ohio Sunshine Laws, how they affect Ohio public officials, and how they influence the conduct of official public business. While the intended audience of this article is Ohio elected officials in general, SWCD board members are reminded that, although they were elected in a special election, they are Ohio public officials and must heed the Ohio Sunshine Laws. Similarly, these laws and rules apply to SWCD employees since they are considered Ohio public employees.
