Recording of Public Meetings
The Morton Grove Public Library abides by the Illinois Open Meetings Act and cooperates with representatives of print and broadcast media and with 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 chairperson of the Library Board of Trustees may impose additional rules or limitations on recording as necessary to preserve the decorum of the meeting and avoid disruption of the meeting.
Under the Illinois Open Meetings Act, the Morton Grove Public Library Board may hold a closed meeting or executive session when it addresses one of the exemptions found in 5 Ill. Comp. Stat. 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.
Approved by the Morton Grove Public Library Board of Trustees November 21, 2014; readopted November 12, 2015.
