SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Salt Lake County councilman wants to put a stop to closed meetings of the mayor's top aids.

Councilman David Wilde says the motivation for his ordinance comes from the old mayor. He said he doesn't want to see sequels of the scandals that unfolded under Nancy Workman.

Wilde wants Cabinet meetings to be advertised in advance, open to the public and the news media and recorded under Utah's Open Meeting Act.

All of which are NOT currently required on the state or national level or in any other Utah county.

Deputy Mayor Karen Suzuki-Okabe says the requirement is too stringent, particularly for an administration that campaigned on and now counts openness as its hallmark.

The proposed ordinance will go before the County Council today.
