Excerpt from The Arizona Open Meeting Law [Handbook]:

7.5.2 Circumvention of the Open Meeting Law.

Discussions … between less than a majority of the members .. . public officials may not circumvent public discussion by splintering the quorum and having separate … discussions … with … public body members. “Splintering the quorum”[emphasis added] can be done by meeting in person, by telephone, electronically, to discuss a topic that is or may be presented to the public body for a decision. Public officials should refrain from … actions that may appear to remove discussions and decisions from public view.

Translation: Council members ought not to meet in two-sies or three-sies to discuss Town Council business privately.
