OSBI completes investigation into Norman FOIA violation

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has completed its investigation into the city of Norman’s violation of the state’s Oklahoma Open Meeting Act.

The investigation was requested by Cleveland County Sheriff Chris Amason in January after a district judge ruled that the City Council violated the act during a meeting in which the police budget was cut by $865,000. The state Supreme Court last week upheld the ruling.

OSBI spokesperson Brooke Arbeitman said on Thursday that a report will be sent to Amason and the district attorney. Arbeitman said she cannot comment on the findings of investigators.
