While the Attorney General’s Office cannot specify the type of notice which must be given in all cases, the following notice guidelines are suggested:
1. Th e notice should contain the time and place of the meeting and, if available, an agenda,
or if no agenda is available, a statement of the general subject matter to be considered.
2. The notice should be prominently displayed in the area in the agency’s offices set aside for that purpose, e.g., for cities, in city hall, and on the agency’s website, if there is one.
3. Except in the case of emergency or special meetings, notice should be provided at least 7 days prior to the meeting. Emergency sessions should be afforded the most appropriate and effective notice under the circumstances.
4. Special meetings should have no less than 24 and preferably at least 72 hours reasonable notice to the public. See Yarbrough v. Young, 462 So. 2d 515 (Fla. 1st DCA 1985) (three days notice of special meeting deemed adequate).
I GOT THE NOTICE AT 11 am LESS THAN 24 HOURS BEFORE THE MEETING. IT SEEMS WE ARE GOING BACKWARD. WE ARE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THE COUNCIL’S WISHES THAN WE ARE THE PEOPLE’S NOTICE. IN THIS CASE MEAGAN AND HELEN YOU ARE TRULY WRONG TO ALLOW THIS MEETING TO HAPPEN.
