BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has

ordered the City Council in the central North Dakota town of Bowdon

to provide minutes of meetings he says violated the state's open

meetings law.

Stenehjem says a special council meeting in June held before a

regularly scheduled meeting was not advertised, and a special

meeting in August was advertised with the wrong date.

The attorney general says a third council meeting, in June, that

also was in dispute did not violate the law because a quorum of the

council was not present.
