Present: Uecke, Kendall, Booth & Hogan
Recommended changes to draft agreement, supported by minutes, previously sent to Attorney Bartels.
Mentioned inconsistencies may exist in document because of new changes, which should be corrected when found.
Discussed 7.02—majority vs. unanimous for joinder agreement. Uniformity must be for joining and for dismissal. Majority vote is recommended but the reason for unanimous is understood. As 3 Towns, majority makes sense. As 4 or more Towns, unanimous is preferable. Changes may be made to agreement at any time if agreeable to the Towns.
Discussed 7.04(b)–legality of emails for meeting notices. Ok for informal meetings but not recommended when open meeting law must be followed.
Discussed posting of meeting notices when 3 Towns meet. Each Town should post in 3 places as defined in open meeting law.
Attorney Bartels understands what we want in our agreement and should have a draft document ready for us to review in a week-and-a-half.
MEETING CANCELLED FOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30TH. RESCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6TH, 6:30 P.M., TOWN OF DOTY.
The 3 Town Representatives will review draft document for needed corrections and will request changes from the Attorney prior to sharing with the 3 Towns’ Board of Supervisors, for final approval or needed changes.
Minutes prepared by:
Ann Hogan, Chairperson
Town of Riverview
