Onslow Co. Board of Education sued in public records dispute

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

A local newspaper and concerned citizen are suing the Onslow County Board of Education in a public records dispute.

ENC Weekly and Onslow County resident Mike Plienis filed a lawsuit in superior court on Monday.

"The Onslow County Board of Education has denied or ignored our clients' right to public information," their lawyer, Nathan Sweet, said in a statement.

The lawsuit claims the Onslow County Board of Education failed to make public information related to a $75 million bond referendum on the November ballot.

This is related to the board's funding request to build a new elementary and middle school.

The lawsuit says the school board has refused to publicize the time and place of meetings related to the bond, which they say is a violation of state law.

The Onslow County Board of Education defended itself, saying it has done nothing illegal.

"The Onslow County Board of Education takes very seriously its responsibilities under the statutes of the State of North Carolina, and also has made every effort to ensure that the citizens of Onslow County have a full understanding of the pending bond issue and the needs it is intended to address," said Onslow County schools public information officer Suzie Ulbrich.
