Members of the Cheshire Public Safety Commission, along with other Town staff, will be required to take a refresher course on Freedom of Information regulations next week, after it was determined the Commission had failed to properly file its minutes from previous meetings on time.
Town Manager Michael Milone informed the Town Council of the need for the training session at its Tuesday meeting, and recommended that members of other Town boards and commissions consider attending as well. Milone also mentioned that Cheshire may want to make a similar training session an annual event, so that new members of government boards and commissions are kept abreast of FOI procedures.
The state Freedom of Information Commission came to its conclusion after Cheshire resident Cindy Kleist, who is running for the Town Council as a write-in candidate, informed them that the Public Safety Commission had failed to properly file the minutes for previous meetings.
