Open Meeting Story


Please choose one of the following city councils and cover one of its meetings. You must attend the entire meeting and come back with a story that indicates the large event or decision of the meeting, when and where it was, who voted, public reaction, and other information the public would like know. DO NOT use another personís story coverage for this, i.e., donít go by what the Oklahoman or Transcript wrote about your meeting to explain it to the readers. Rather, research before you go to understand the issues, and then address those issues in your story. You may use the Oklahoman or another paper as research before the meeting, though.  When you turn in your story, please turn in the agenda that goes with the meeting.
