The 48-page report by attorney Tom A. Peterson IV from his investigation into whether a majority of Statesboro City Council members privately met with former City Manager Frank Parker in violation of the Georgia Open Meetings Act reveals no undisputed smoking gun that this occurred. “It does not appear that any member of the Council or Parker committed any misdemeanor violation pursuant to (the Open Meetings Act),” Peterson wrote in his conclusion. “Thus, it does not appear that the investigation should be referred to the Attorney General of Georgia for consideration.”
