(a) Any person upon written request and as provided herein, may obtain reasonable advance notification of all meetings at which any specific type of public business is scheduled to be discussed.
Such person may file a written request with the Clerk specifying:
(1) The person's name and address(es) and telephone number(s) at or through which the person can be reached during and outside of business hours;
(2) The specific type of public business the discussion of which the person is requesting advance notification;
(3) The municipal body that is the subject of such request; and
(4) The number of calendar months, not to exceed twelve, which the request covers. Such request may be canceled by request from such person to the Clerk.
Each such written request must be accompanied by cash or a check or money order payable to the City, in the amount of one dollar ($1.00) for each meeting covered by the request, which amount has been determined by Council to represent a reasonable fee to cover costs of providing such advance notification. Such requests may be modified or extended only by filing a complete new request with the Clerk. A request shall not be deemed to be made unless it is complete in all respects and such request may be conclusively relied on by the City, municipal body that is the subject of such request and the Clerk.
(b) The Clerk shall, if possible, give such advance notification under this section by written notification. If such written notification cannot be given or has not been given the Clerk shall give oral notification.
(c) The contents of written notification under subsection (b) hereof may be a copy of the agenda of the meeting. Written notification under subsection (b) hereof may be accomplished by giving advance written notification by copies of the agendas of all meetings of the municipal body that is the subject of such request.
