DIAMONDHEAD, MS (WLOX) - The Diamondhead Water and Sewer District has been cited by the Mississippi Ethics Commission for repeatedly violating the state's Open Meetings Act.

The citations stemmed from a complaint that the board was going into too many "questionable" executive sessions between 2013 and 2015. Ethics commissioners say most sessions dealt with construction projects, like a controversial administrative facility and a new treatment plant.

The board wasn't punished, but it was given a warning about the state's open meetings laws.
