Meeting Adjourned

2010-12-02 - No agenda available from the darned folk
       Rumor has it that some an agenda has been posted in some post offices..
       I guess you have to be physically on the mountain to be important enough for these
         folk to let you know what is happening.

Another source says they are going to
1. they are going to talk about garbage and recycling.
(if they put there fingers into this will garbage rates go up "for the good of the community"?)
2. They expect to appoint another crony to fill one of the empty slots
3. They expect to hear progress reports about:
a. Doug Saldivar - Sustainability activities and projects for the Villages
b. Bob Reeves - increase funding and service for MEL our bus system
c. Pat Sharp - Environmental activities and projects
d. Shirley Dueber - Safety on Welches Road
e. absolutely no report/projects/contribution expected from:
   => George Wilson
   => Pat Buckley

Calendar showing official Villages meetings: (i.e. only "Mt. Hodd Chamber)



- 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
