The West Virginia Ethics Commission is redoing its December meeting because of a mistake that resulted in an open meetings violation.
     The commission has scheduled a special meeting for Jan. 21 to revisit all the items on December's agenda.
     Executive Director Joan Parker said Thursday that the commission forgot to post a notice of the meeting on the secretary of state's website.
     West Virginia's Open Meetings Act requires state agencies to file a notice of any meeting with the secretary of state for publication in the weekly State Register. The register is posted on the office's website.
     Parker says the commission's mistake is an opportunity to educate other governing bodies about rectifying inadvertent violations of the Open Meetings Act.
