Bronx Community Boards Fail to Track Meetings
Half of the borough’s boards are in violation of a state law requiring them to document their meetings and make those records publicly available.
According to THE City news half of the Bronx Community Boards are not documenting their meetings and making the records publicly available as required by the Open Meetings Law.
Kudos to Community Boards 10 and 11, covering the Northeast Bronx, as they are the only ones in the borough that have uploaded minutes for every meeting since 2019.
Community Board 10 chair Joseph Russo told THE CITY that community boards “just gotta do the work.”
“It’s not that hard, it’s part of what we’re supposed to do,” he said. “You know, it’s not like rocket science or anything.”
