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).

  1. Joe, I dont want to argue with you however I reviewed the case that you cited related to the Sunshine Law. The DCA did rule that 3 days is adequate notice of a special meeting. The DCA however did not rule that 3 days was the required required notice ony that 3 days was reasonable notice. As stated in the law 4. Special meetings should have no less than 24 and preferably at least 72 hours reasonable notice to the public. Based on the law 24 hours is adequate until such time as a court rules something more is a requirement. In the cited case the plantiff challanged the 3 day notice as unreasonable and the DCA ruled 3 days was in fact reasonable but did not rule that 3 days was required.

  2. no the attorney General did in her AGO’s Or did you not read the Sunshine Manual? I don’t want to argue with you but three days is the minimum required for a Special Meeting. Read it and weep.
