Beck v. Crisp County Zoning Board of Appeals was a case before the Georgia Supreme Court in 1996 concerning open meetings laws.

Background

Beck v. Crisp County Zoning Board of Appeals, 221 Ga. App. 801, 472 S.E.2d 558 (1996) (Blackburn, J.): Appeal from order of trial court (Lawson, J.) finding that appellant landowners failed to establish a violation of the Open Meetings Act. Court of Appeals reversed, concluding that the zoning board intentionally misinformed the public by its printed agenda and its chairman's comments that the meeting was closed. Accordingly, the board's action on the petition for conditional use permit at issue was void.[1]
