La. R.S. 42:19 states that any public body has to fix its meeting schedule at the beginning of each calendar year. So, your local governmental authority should have all of its meetings listed currently on its website or at its headquarters. The public body can also call “special meetings” via written public notice 24 hours before the meeting. There’s also a provision that allows the public body to call “emergency meetings” when necessary without any notice…but that’s in exceptions circumstances like natural disasters and times of war.
