I am a recreation manager for a residential community. Recently, an ADHOC committee was formed in the community. They have tried to make inquires from the property management company as to how much I am being paid. I work directly for the master association. Is it legal for them to disclose my salary to this committee? I fear they will make an issue of how much I am paid and disclose that information to all home owners.
The committee was not empowered to enter into an agreement with the Chamber of Commerce; however, I have been informed that the committee was appointed by the mayor to determine the financial and other conditions of the transfer of the land from the city to the chamber. The meeting between the members of the committee and the chamber resulted in the preparation of a draft deed which was presented by the committee to the city council.
Initially, I note that this office is not authorized to comment upon the validity of actions which have already occurred; such a determination is one which the judiciary, and not this office, must make. My comments are limited to a discussion of the applicability of the Government-in-the-Sunshine Law to such an ad hoc committee and no comment is expressed regarding the validity of any actions which may have been taken by the committee.
the committee, responsible for proposing a land-transfer deed and the conditions for such transfer, played an integral part in the decisional process. Accordingly, it is my opinion that such an ad hoc committee is subject to and must comply with the requirements of the Government-in-the-Sunshine Law, s. 286.011, F.S., even though the committee\'s decisions and recommendations are subject to further action by the city council.
