BURLEY, Idaho (AP) -- The Cassia County Commission has approved audio recordings of their weekly business meetings after the board was caught violating government transparency laws.
The Times-News reported that commissioners voted Monday to approve the practice. Recordings will be embedded in the minutes of their meetings on the county's website.
The county clerk began recording meetings after the board was caught violating government transparency laws at least three times in the past year.
The clerk had begun writing detailed, lengthy minutes in hopes of preserving transparency and because the public asked. The commissioners were critical of the minutes because they took so long to read.
