BUTLER TWP — The Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau today passed two resolutions aimed at creating more transparency in the organization.

The board passed a resolution governing how it operates public meetings and when it will adjourn to executive session.

The group had already “voluntarily” abided by the state’s Sunshine Act, according to board President Rodney Schaffer, and will continue to do so.

The resolution confirms that the board will only go into executive session for legal matters, employment issues and the sale or lease of property, the same exceptions that are part of the state’s Sunshine Act.

In addition, the board approved a resolution that requires any check totaling more than $1,000 have two signatures on it before leaving the office.

The resolution came after the board last month eliminated a $500 threshold for checks requiring two signatures.
