You write to WIP: Is the rule of law extinct in Olympia?

Dear WIP,

Recently I spoke to Olympia’s assistant city manager, who told me that the Parks Department had a meeting with mountain bikers to plan a bike park at Kaiser Woods. He said that they didn’t need to follow the Open Meetings Law. That’s not true!. It’s perfectly clear. All meetings must be open to everyone. Secret meetings are not open to everyone, and are violations of the Open Meetings Law! The City broke the law and is still denying it! I notified the City Council, but no one responded. Is the rule of law extinct in Olympia?  You can read the Open Meetings Act  yourself at
