GRC’s Parave-Fogg decision challenged to bring unapproved minutes under OPRA

The GRC decided in Parave-Fogg v. Lower Alloways Creek Township that public meeting minutes are exempt from OPRA as “inter-agency, intra-agency advisory, consultative, or deliberative material” until they are approved by the public body. This often results in unreasonable delays in public access to these records. Delays of several years are not uncommon. The GRC is now being sued in an effort to have the misguided Parave-Fogg decision overturned so that unapproved meeting minutes are subject to OPRA. -NJFOG
