Voting for Bylaw Changes
While the Darned Villages folk won't tell you what it is, as best as I can tell it is:
1) reduce size of board since you won't play with them in their meaningless, time wasting meeting
2) make it so they can trivially hold ad-hoc town halls just after their monthly board meeting
Clearly the community isn't interested in their do-nothing, so they'll make sure
they can railroad
and claim "community support".
Better late than never? Think you might actually read it???

Business meeting portion postponed to next Town Hall due to time constraints.
(minutes approval, treasurer’s report)
But, of course, if the Bylaw changes pass, they can hold a Town Hall, approved minutes, do anything they want in the name of the community, at any and all of their boring, time wasting meetings with basically no notice.
....but then, these folk, as they shroud themselves in secrecy, hold celebrations in remote towns, etc, have
their best interest at heart.
