CHURCHS FERRY, ND (WDAZ-TV) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the Churchs Ferry city council violated the state's open meetings law.

CHURCHS FERRY, ND (WDAZ-TV) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the Churchs Ferry city council violated the state's open meetings law.

The city council went into executive session during a May meeting to talk about hiring an attorney for a lawsuit the city is involved in.

Because the council didn't discuss confidential information or negotiate strategy, Stenehjem says the executive session was illegal.

He also says the city didn't digitally record the meeting as required, but minutes were kept.
