Wisconsin Public Meeting Notices & Minutes

Governor Scott Walker issued Executive Order #235 to further increase open and transparent government in Wisconsin. This Executive Order directed state agencies, including departments, boards, councils and commissions, to post all open meeting notices and meeting minutes on the Wisconsin public meeting notices website beginning September 1, 2017. The goal of this website is to be a centralized location for state agencies to post open meeting notices and meeting minutes in an effort to increase state government transparency.
