Must meetings be held in a specific place?
Meetings of the governing body of a public body must be held within the geographic boundaries of the area over which the governing body has jurisdiction. These rules do not apply in the case of an actual emergency requiring immediate action. The law also allows governing bodies to hold “training sessions” outside their jurisdiction as long as no deliberations toward a decision are involved. ORS 192.630(4)
