Anyone for Green Energy in Geneva? How About Open, Honest Government – Anyone for that?

This paragraph is cut from the Minutes of the July 10, 2017, secret closed session meeting of the Geneva City Council Committee of the Whole. Of course, no exception from the Illinois Open Meetings Act exists for this topic, and taking a vote, formal or informal, that determines the disposition of any such public issue is strictly prohibited in a closed session. How many Geneva issues are raised and settled without ever reaching a public agenda?

I have made a Freedom of Information request to the City for the details including the entity that made the inquiry. This will takes weeks, but it took years to discover the misconduct. The secret minutes quoted above were not released until March 21, 2022.
