OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas City suburb of Mission is accused of violating the Kansas Open Meetings Act.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said Friday that Mayor Laura McConwell signed documents to purchase a building without the City Council's binding approval.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/Ujb7jV) reported that the Mission City Council talked about buying the building in a closed meeting, but failed to authorize the purchase. The city paid $280,000 for the building.

Howe says he won't charge any of the council members or mayor with violating the law at this time. But he requested that the mayor and City Council attend training on the open meetings law within the next six months.

Howe says the purchase of the building won't be voided.
