Podcast/audio is available (use contact page)
Minutes of Meeting are available

Documents mentioned in meeting (but not made available/hidden from Community) found:
(note: sarcasum about these darned folk: intended)
1. Clackamas County Response to "shake down" (threat to sue)
2. Letter telling BOD cronies to keep their noses out of County Legal Issues
policy is not to comment of matters of potential litigations and when in a public forum it is not appropriate to make any statement or take any action.
3. Villages of the Darned Cronies' cover letter (trying to shiftily support giving away taxpaer funds)
No contract? No specs? No Problem! Give'm the tax money!
4. Bridgette Romeo's letter and Sheriff Roberts response to Safety Concern
on US26 parking in Rhody
5. Wilson/Saldivar memo whining about county employees
Need to have an audience to show how important their egos are.
6. Mr. Amplitheather's proposal on how to rig BOD appointments
=> key items to note
IV. a. Only marked ballots count
       b. Blank ballots won't count at all
V. b. can't be voted out of office if you bully everyone into not participating.
Thus, there is no way to get rid of bullies, cronies, miscreants, if they can keep the slate empty

- All BOD meetings should be open to the public and must be announced with an agenda, on the web site and in the library at least 7 calendar days prior to the day such meeting is to be held.
    - 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
