The Open Meetings Act (OMA) of Michigan requires notice to be given before a meeting is held and requires minutes to be prepared as a record of actions taken at the meeting. Perhaps most imprtantly, the OMA is the source of requirement that all votes of a public body must be made public.
Lawrence Township complies with the OMA by posting notices of meetings at three locations: Lawrence Community Services Building (Fire Station), Lawrence Post Office, Lawrence Township Treasurer's office door (located at the Lawrence Village Offices). In addition, public notices are posted to this website.
