What is an Executive Session?
Under the 'Sunshine Law' approved by the Missouri State Legislature, there are a limited number of topics the City Council may discuss without the presence of citizens or the press. There is the requirement for the likelihood that the Council might choose to go into Executive Session to be posted 24 hours before the action is taken, that posting to indicate what the subject is, so that anyone curious may determine that the subject is one that meets the State Statute requirements, and for the Council to respond to a roll call vote regarding the question of going into that Executive Session. That posting will be on either the agenda for a Council Meeting or the agenda for a Work Session and the roll call vote to go into the Executive Session will be during that prior meeting.
