                  An act relating to local government; removing notice 
                  requirements for on-site inspections by town boards; 
                  amending Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 366.01,

        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 366.01, 
        subdivision 11, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 11.  [OPEN MEETING LAW; EXEMPTION.] Except for the 
        notice requirements, Section 471.705 does not apply to a 
        gathering of town board members to perform on-site inspections, 
        if the town has no employees or other staff able to perform the 
        inspections and the town board is acting essentially in a staff 
        capacity.  The town board shall make good faith efforts to 
        provide notice of the inspections to each news medium that has 
        filed a written request for notice if the request includes the 
        news medium's telephone number.  The notice shall be given by 
        telephone or by any other method used to notify the members of 
        the public body. 
           Presented to the governor April 14, 1994
