Tuesday, October 6, 2015 4-6 pm
Hoodland Fire Station Meeting Room, 69634 E. Hwy 26, Welches, OR

As of 2015-1006 yesterday's PRR got the "Application" by Gina Royall
              our new community representative from the August Meeting
Note: it appears that Jan Moss has resigned from the BOD 2015-100; more to come, County willing.

2015-1027: Draft Summary Minutes of this meeting (no full minutes nor recording available)
          (had to use a Public Records Request to pry out of King George)
My notes from the draft summary meeting notes (as of 2015-1027)
  1. "George Wilson said he does not want draft minutes on the website or circulated."
    => until he has a chance to change the summary minutes to match what he wants?
  2. "George Wilson said the current process (of witholding minutes) is designed to eliminate miscommunications and corrections."
  3. why are draft (summary) minutes not available?
    "George Wilson said that as Chair he made that choice."
    => it is (King) George violating Oregon Public Records law entirely on his own
    => note: in his application to be on the BOD, Mr. Wilson signed that he would uphold Oregon Public Records and Meetings laws, but apparently, as self appointed king, not so much.
  4. "He said that he wants information to be accurate."
    => i.e. say what he wants them to say - ref when a transcript was made since Mtn Quail refused to kow-tow and record what he didn't say. (Nov 2009?)
  5. No vote on Ben Bliesner application and statement (not available) for joining the board
  6. Town Hall: "George Wilson said that items (room and snacks) were approved not a dollar amount."
    => OK, George: where did the BOD vote to approve for the August Town Hall
           (hey, you're the acting/chair during this period, I am sure you "certify" that it is true)
  7. Town Hall: "George Wilson explained the cost was because the Resort charged $17 per person"
  8. 2015-0901 minutes:
    "Marilan Anderson asked if food should be at the Town Hall, and George Wilson said yes"
    => apparently Mr. Wilson has decide to bribe people to come to town halls with food (drink?) provided with tax dollars.
  9. Resort's bill fails: per bylaws, less than a quorum of all directors (4) vote in favor
  10. folk want draft minutes:
    "George Wilson said approved minutes are on the website."
  11. "George said the reason for the name change is to avoid confusion in group names and website
    addresses. George said that there have been mix ups"
    "asked if the logo would be changed as well, and George Wilson said yes."
    => note: the Villages does not maintain a web site
    => Villages paid tax monies to a friend to have the logo developed
  12. "George said .... The Villages are an arm of the County."
  13. "George said that he would not be sending in outside speakers items."
    => Public Records of things like powerpoint, commitments, marketing, etc
    if said by a someone not on the BOD
    "George said that Counsel said that outside presenter’s materials/Powerpoints are different than Villages produced items. " so they can be withheld?
    => is this the same County Counsel who OK'ed a SLAPP against a private citizen to trying to pay attention to the Complete Communities program?

  1. 4:00 Call to Order/ Roll Call/Pledge of Allegiance
  2. 4:05 Approve September 2015 BOD Meeting Minutes/August 2015 Town Hall Meeting Minutes

Next Scheduled Villages at Mt. Hood BOD Meeting - November 3, 2015

- 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
