NOTICE OF MEETINGS. (a) Notice of meetings of the board shall be given as set forth in the open meetings law, Chapter 551, Government Code, except that if a district does not have a meeting place within the district, the district shall post notice of its meeting at a public place within the district specified by the board in a written resolution, rather than at its administrative office. The board shall specify such public place to be a bulletin board or other place within the district which is reasonably available to the public.
(b) The validity of an action taken at a board meeting is not affected by:
(1) failure to provide notice of the meeting if the meeting is a regular meeting;
(2) an insubstantial defect in notice of the meeting; or
(3) failure of a county clerk to timely or properly post or maintain public access to a notice of the meeting if notice of the meeting is furnished to the county clerk in sufficient time for posting under Section 551.043(a) or 551.045, Government Code.
(c) This subsection applies only to notice for the district's first meeting of each calendar year. A district that does not have a meeting place within the district shall include in the notice required under Subsection (a) a description of the petition process under Section 49.062(c).
