The learning curve begins Tuesday night for newly elected members of the McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., a session will offer insight into how not to break the state’s open meeting act. City administrator David Rutherford says he will offer a “quick cursory review” of the city administrator position and how to avoid violating the state’s open meetings act.“If they talk among themselves about issues and a decision is reached, they are in violation of the open meetings act,” said Rutherford.
