Time: There seems to be some confusion or deception
According to the Sandy Post: 1:00-3:00pm for a "Workshop"
According to the
obscure, posted agenda: 3-5 pm
for a "Work Session"

Documents from Meeting: Minutes from meeting:
2008-0417: None available

In the absence of minutes, the following are some interesting quotes:
Nancy Dougherty:
"We are 'elected officials'."
Rick Applegate:
"This is our community and we will determine how this community is run"
"..we have a lot of power over it!" (Tourism Alliance)
"We need to decide how to spend the money" (room tax)
"It is disadvantage for the board to show up at the Strategic Planning meeting."

None available as of April 6, 2008
See County's agenda, below, Dougherty agenda was handed out at the meeting

=> The Chair and Vice Chair have very clearly
           "engaged in activities detrimental to the Villages of Mt Hood purposes"

Agenda received on April 7, 2008 2:21 from Chris Roth - Clackamas County Liaison to Villages and Hamlets
   => a request has been made as of 2:40 pm to confirm the date and time
  => as of 4:47 pm the date and time are confirmed,
        two draft documents that *may* be used in the meeting:
             Letter to Linda Bell authorizing TAC to manage Room Tax Dollars
                Note: according to sources, Applegate stonewalled approving this at the 4/1 meeting
             Draft of 2008 work plan (actually just a form)

    - There is no requirement that any materials be available prior to the meeting but may be requested under Oregon public meeting laws but I have not had any success with that approach
