Tom Sullivan addressed the Board and shared that he filed a complaint with the Attorney General of Missouri against the District for violating the State Sunshine Law. The Board of Trustees and Tim Snoke were named in the complaint. Mr. Sullivan argues that he requested the names and emails of the Rate Commission Committee members and his request was refused, based on MSD’s personnel information exemption and law. Mr. Sullivan stated that his request for Rate Commission contact information does not fall under the protection of MSD employee privacy laws. Mr. Sullivan argued that the refusal to provide him access is due to a need to control information going to the rate commission members and doing so is a violation. 2. Mr. Sullivan shared that he has complaints against the General Counsel and Board members who are members of the Bar with the Disciplinary Counsel. Mr. Sullivan mentioned the $150,000,000.00 tunnel project from a few years ago and reminded the board that the issue is ongoing and the Board may be headed towards trouble. 3. Lastly, Mr. Sullivan mentioned Ordinance 15112 for Public Engagement.
