Ill. AG Investigates Pontiac School Board Meetings

The Illinois attorney general's office is again investigating claims that a central Illinois elementary school board violated open meetings laws.

Former Pontiac Mayor Scott McCoy filed the complaint against Pontiac Elementary School District 429.

He alleges the board didn't fully explain why it went into closed session and discussed issues in executive session that should've been discussed publicly.

The complaint involves meetings on Feb. 1 and Feb. 18.

School district attorney Jeff Funk says the district acted properly.

This is the second time the school board has faced allegations.Residents filed a complaint in February 2009. The school district faced no penalties in that case.
