Villages BOD fails to exonerate Wilson!

May 8, 2014
Well, that's interesting.
Rather than voting up or down the "Removal of a Director George Wilson",
they discuss and then just "move on" or,
        as Chair Reeves says "take no action" (today).

This is ugly. Do they pull wings off flies too?
There is Mr. Wilson with this hanging over his head and anyone can bring it up at anytime for a vote. Will they wait until he is not there so they can vote him off with out the resulting bluster/threats?
Minutes of May 6, 2014 Meeting available June 5, 2014 (lack of exoneration confirmed)
Provided 2014-0430 by County
  1. 4:00 Call to Order, Roll Call and Pledge of Allegiance
  2. 4:05 Minutes April 1, 2014 Villages of Darned Meeting
    OK, turkeys! Where are April minutes for the community to read?
    "talk to the hand, you have to attend the meeting cuz we ain't go'ing to tell youse nuthing.
  3. 4:15 Treasurer’s Report
         Note expenditures, from last time, approved at February Meeting:
    • $27.60 to Bob Reeves for photocopying
      "there were no handouts" for my public records request or the community
    • $76 to George Wilson for Town Hall Posters (5?)
      apparently the turkey got 90! (that's Ninety)...and 10 people came!
      put up by Reeves in the usual places and not seen by anyone
    • $9 to Reeves for the PO Box key he lost(?)
  4. 4:20 Communications to the Board
    So, one of their number is really, really bad, 14 days before, per Bylaws,
              Bylaw Requirements and Removal of a Director George Wilson
               at the BOD Meeting scheduled Tuesday May 6, 2014
    But, that is merely "communications to the the Board"
    Apparently they can't be bothered keeping their "word" to
            "represent the community"
    and, of course, there will not really be a public record of what they say.....
  5. 4:30 Persons to be Heard
  6. 4:35 Chamber Report – Coni Scott
  7. 4:50 Old Business
    • Discuss Candidates Forum & May Elections
    • Not this time on the "I certify" fiasco
      Update on Bike Committee - George Wilson
      $85,000 for "Staff Costs - Direct" (i.e. George?)
      $17,000 as "Contracted Services" from the TAP Committee???
      No approvals by anyone. It is George all the way and he "certifies it"!
      Do you think the District Attorney will be looking at this as criminal fraud?
  8. 5:10 New Business
    • Review County Ordinance
      Now that the County is likely to change the Complete Communities Ordinance
           due to the not so nice activities of Molalla Prairie and our Villages
      they're acknowledging they "don't have a clue"?
  9. 5:50 Board member comments
  10. 6:00 Adjournment

- 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
