Recording of Public Meetings
The Morton Grove Public Library abides by the Illinois Open Meetings Act (5 ILCS 120/) and cooperates with representatives of print and broadcast media and other members of the public who wish to make either video or audio recordings of public meetings so long as said recordings neither disrupt a meeting, nor violate the rights of the members of the public body, witnesses, or the public. The Library Board of Trustees may impose additional rules or limitations on recording as necessary to avoid disruption and to preserve the decorum of the meeting.
Under the Illinois Open Meetings Act, all meetings of public bodies shall be open to the public unless excepted in 5 ILCS 120/2(c). An audio recording of these sessions is made during the closed meeting and kept in accordance with the regulations specified in the Illinois Open Meetings Act (5 ILCS 120/2.06(c)).
Approved by the Morton Grove Public Library Board of Trustees 4/19/18.
