Public Trust

The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa believes that:

Prior to creating a public trust that the beneficiary should give 30 days notice of their interest to create such a trust and hold public hearings. This notice of intent and the places and times of the public hearings should be published in newspapers and given wide-spread publicity in all media.

Trustees of a public trust should live within the boundaries of the beneficiary and be a combination of representatives of the public and people who are knowledgeable about or have expertise in the indenture of the trust.

A public trust should publish agendas before their meetings and should publish regularly at least once a year, a financial statement of the trust.
