Never ascribe to Maliciousness what can be explained by Incompetence


Your Tax Dollars at non-Work

As of the end of August, 2007, the County, in the person of Chris Roth, was made responsible for being the "web site" for the this particular Clackamas County Advisory Board. None of the other Hamlets have allowed/depended upon the County for this much work.

This was based on a motion by Bob Reeves and Rick Applegate.The reason for the change was that Rick Applegate was adamant that previous Web site had "stuff" on it (unspecified) that the community shouldn't see (like Rick's false letter to the Commissioners, maybe?). If Mr. Applegate were actually serious and aboveboard, he would have identified "what" was wrong and had it corrected. But he did not do that.

The result has right up there with worst expectations of county bureaucracy.
Last month, there were 3 separate agendas (see the meeting page for details).

Once again we seem to have bumbling guaranteed to confuse people and make sure that they don't attend a meeting:
    - The Roth Agenda (here)
is somewhat different from the very confusing Dougherty/Reeve's Agenda (or, should we say "Ajenda" since that is what they call it?) here. They seem to have formatting problems, dropped the meeting time (maybe it starts at midnight?), and dropped the "staff report" (whatever that is)

What is with these guys?
Are they really this sloppy/incompetent or are they really trying to hide stuff from the community?

Inquiring minds would like to know......
What was on the County web site as of December 20, 2007                       ....and the problems
