Mt. Lebanon Secrecy Becoming a Habit

In this morning's Post-Gazette:
The board of commissioners went into a private executive session last night after it became apparent the board would not have the four votes needed to approve a $2.9 million bond issue.

When the public meeting resumed, a reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tried to object to the closed session on the basis that it violated the Sunshine Law, but President Ty Ely ended the meeting without allowing the reporter to object.

Solicitor James Roberts contended the session was allowable under the Sunshine Law because it represented attorney-client privilege.
