I posted this from Sept. 1, 2017 when it was posted on the NEW UBID website. A Committee of the Whole Meeting Thursday Sept 7, 2017 at 6 pm.
Turns out the meeting was Sept. 6, 2017 at 6 pm. The administrator has removed the links – don’t know if he ever figured out the date and time and actually posted it on the website prior to the meeting.
A landowner had requested in writing to record the public part of the meeting as the landowner had received confirmation their Freedom Of Information request was scheduled to be discussed – see agenda number 5 before the in camera session. The request was denied by the Chair and no reason provided.
The agenda was adopted but when number 5 Correspondence was to be dealt with they made the landowner leave! They are just a major screw up from one thing to the next. They don’t understand their own rules or they simply don’t care.
Transparency – they don’t know the meaning of the word.
These guys just keep violating their own bylaws.
They hired a guy with zero government experience and he’s crying the blues because he’s so busy he can’t respond to correspondence. What correspondence? When was the last time correspondence was in the minutes of the meetings? He simply refuses to respond so I don’t know how he’s over run. Wants to hire someone to handle correspondence? This is the same guy who wanted to have a collection agency recover outstanding parcel taxes and water tolls instead of him.
Doesn’t understand a public meeting means the public may attend.
Doesn’t he have an assistant? What’s the assistant’s title? Is it Administrative Assistant? Exactly what does this person do?
