Open Meetings Act
"The Michigan Open Meetings Act (OMA) requires meetings of a public body to be open to the public and held in a place available to the general public. Notice of regular meetings shall be posted within ten days after the first meeting in each calendar or fiscal year, and notice of special meetings shall be posted at least 18 hours before the meeting. In addition, the OMA allows for public bodies to hold emergency meetings. Public notices must contain the name of the public body to which the notice applies, its telephone number, and its address. PA 528 of 2012 amended the OMA with the intent to create more transparency in the event a public body has to hold an emergency meeting that does not comply with the 18-hour notice requirement of the OMA."
