Prior to the adoption of 15733 on 09/08/1998, Section 2-25 read as follows.


    (a) All public governmental bodies shall give notice of the time, date, and place of each public meeting, or closed meeting, and its tentative agenda, in a manner reasonably calculated to apprise the public of that information. Reasonable notice shall include time notification to representatives of the news media and posting the notice on the bulletin board in the fourth floor hallway of the Daniel Boone Building, 701 East Broadway and/or on a bulletin board or other prominent place which is easily accessible to the public and clearly designated for that purpose at the principal office of the body holding the meeting, or if no such office exists, at the building in which the meeting is to be held.

    (b) Notice conforming with all of the requirements of subsection 2-25(a) shall be given at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the commencement of any meeting of a public governmental body unless, for good cause, such notice is impossible or impractical, in which case as much notice as is reasonably possible shall be given. Each meeting shall be held at a place reasonably accessible to the public, and at a time reasonably convenient to the public, unless for good cause such a place or time is impossible or impractical. Every reasonable effort shall be made to grant special access to the meeting to handicapped or disabled individuals.

    (c) When it is necessary to hold a meeting on less than twenty-four (24) hours' notice, or at a place that is not reasonably accessible to the public, or at a time that is not reasonably convenient to the public, the nature of the good cause justifying that departure from the normal requirements shall be stated in the minutes.

    (d) A formally constituted subunit of a parent public governmental body may conduct a meeting without notice as required by this section during a lawful meeting of the parent governmental body, a recess in that meeting, or immediately following that meeting, if the meeting of the subunit is publicly announced at the parent meeting and the subject of the meeting reasonably coincides with the subjects discussed or acted upon by the parent governmental body.

    (e) If another provision of law requires a manner of giving specific notice of a meeting, hearing or an intent to take action by a governmental body, compliance with that section shall constitute compliance with the notice requirements of this section.

    (f) All public governmental bodies proposing to hold a closed meeting, record, or vote shall give notice of the time, date, and place of such meeting pursuant to the provisions of subsections (a) through (c) of this section, and the reason for holding the closed session by references to the specific exemption allowed under the provisions of section 2-25.1.
