The Lafayette Fire and Civil Service Board postponed this month's meeting after violating open meetings laws.

According to the board chairman, they did not properly post the agenda online. On the agenda were several items, including a hearing for Alex Ritter.

Ritter was fired as a Lafayette Police officer after he was arrested on simple battery charges.

His hearing, and several other agenda items, including a complaint against LPD chief Thomas Glover, will be heard at the September 15th meeting.
