Here is Mr. Speece's new comment rules. Each new Chairman imposes his or hers restrictions, Dave's is the most restrictive comment rules in the last two years...so much for transparency!
SEE NEW RULES FOR PRIVATE CITIZENS! MEETING RULES AND ETIQUETTE If you intend to give comments during the public comment period, you must sign up. Public Comment is split into two categories, Agenda (specific item listed on the agenda for discussion tonight) and Non-Agenda (general comments). In the interest of maintaining order, civility, and brevity at our meetings, the following guidelines apply: 1.) Substance and tone is expected to remain respectful. 2.) Only one person speaks at a time. 3.) Speakers may be limited by the Chair to 3-minutes or less and are asked to limit repetition. Groups attending to speak on the same topic can designate a spokesperson. Public comment is limited 30-minutes per meeting. How time is allotted is up to the discretion of the Chair. 4.) Those wishing to make comment must approach the microphone and state their name and address for the record.
The excuse for the late bills : caused by BCIU software glitch.
Did she say tax reduction was $170? Its more like $107!
MichelrvGilbert resigns, condolences to who ever hires her.
Lincoln Woods project wants to add another 100 mobile homes!
RCC food and beverage committee still has no private citizens
Simone Collins plan behind the new road to Trout run...you know that can't be good, part of water front property plan.....crazy waste of money
Galtere warns Cusatis on social media comments, Cusatis sits back and takes it
Dorothy Reilly scolds the supervisors very elegantly
Critical of new public comment rules
Pointed out Golf course to be leased or turned to green space but boys club quiet on this issue.
I discuss RCC and foolish idea to have two operators, one for banquets, one for restaurant, hope these inexperienced, young supervisors figure it out soon. No business experience at all!
Board asks public once again to be civil and respectful....they don't get....THEY ARE THE PROBLEM!
STIPEND turns into temporary pay increase for three who are currently overpaid and severely unqualified!
Secretary Laurie Getz extra $500/month 2020 salary: $59,280
Treasury Jan Savage extra $300/ month 2020 salary: $71,719
New interim manager extra $1,000/month 2020 salary: $94,572
Private industry salaries, and our observations are they are not overworked. As many of you know....these three positions were held by one man...John Granger and as we found out, he never worked on Fridays, came in late the other 4 days and closed his office door.
Our poor community is in bad shape...the same old regime in charge.
Plus we have a subgroup:
The Boys Club:
Watch the videos, observe what they do, how they vote.
