UBID Board Meeting Aug. 15, 2019 – audio only

EDIT: Aug. 16, 2017 @ 1:03 pm. You will notice there is a lot of back and forth when it came to approving those Jan. 17, 2019 unlawful meeting minutes. I sent the following to Chair Healey today:

Hello Chair Healey,
Please note:  I am addressing the violations of the bylaw – not Kaljur’s suspension – regarding the decision to ‘approve’ or ‘receive’ Jan. 17, 2019 minutes based on proper procedures.

 I would like to provide information as to the lack of procedures for Union Bay Improvement District meetings to follow up on Trustee Kaljur’s concerns regarding the violations of the Meeting Procedures Bylaw #263/270 specifically the Jan. 10 COW meeting and Jan. 17 UBID board meeting.  There were no agendas published for either meeting and the only notice referencing the Jan. 17, 2019 meeting was referenced in the Jan. Landowners Update https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wiHJtmNHFFTcDbk1ftcSgrhBJZjq7eKp/view which advises the meeting is not open to the public.  (screenshot attached).

I attempted to attend the UBID meeting at the Community Hall Jan. 17, 2019 along with reporter James Wood from the Goat Radio station.  James was advised by Jody (hall person) the meeting had been moved.  The next day the following article was published by James Wood. https://www.mycomoxvalleynow.com/48814/union-bay-chair-says-thursday-meeting-moved-without-notice-due-to-fear-of-disruption/
The emails below my signature are the ones sent out by UBID admin from Jan. 1 through Jan. 28, 2019.  Note there is no agenda notice of the Jan. 17, 2019 Board meeting and no notice of the COW meeting Jan. 10 which is referenced in counsel Jason Gratl’s letter to the board (attached). The name of the recipient has been removed by request.

I understand you are new to the position.  The problem lies with not having a qualified admin and you are never going to be effective with someone who spends their time trying to cover up the fact they don’t know the job.  You can have five great trustees but if you don’t have a qualified admin – you are spinning your wheels. The admin is supposed to be the one ‘constant’ that keeps the district running and is not political.  A professional qualified admin would never exclude a trustee from receiving all correspondence sent to other trustees – their loyalty is to the improvement district – not to certain trustees.  This admin as made a habit of excluding trustees.

I know you did not approve of my question regarding how you can trust this admin to provide you with all information regarding the governance study.  It is a valid concern since there is a history of this admin withholding correspondence from trustees he doesn’t seem to like.  Another example to add to the January meeting problems is the FACT the admin withheld a letter from UBID’s counsel regarding bylaw 264 which was received in July 2018 and yet Kaljur and Elliott didn’t receive it until the day it was voted on at the Oct. 2018 board meeting.

This board is unable to function if you do not have reference material when voting on motions.  Last night was a perfect example.  Trustee Vandenberg wasn’t comfortable voting on the motion for a temporary FOI person.  The material was not provided by the admin.  This has been the pattern leading to poor decisions or simply being forgotten.

What safeguards are in place to ensure the entire board is aware of all correspondence regarding the governance study?  It has proven to be easy for the admin to simply distribute info as he sees fit.  I have every reason to believe this admin will sabotage any attempt to become a service area just as he has since the motion was passed in Nov. 2017.  The admin and Bitten obviously conspired to prevent the study and introduced municipality status at the Jan. 2018 meeting when it had never been discussed by the board.  It is no secret KIP, Bitten and Haraldson have all pushed municipality status and their relationship with KIP is far too cosy imo.

Why isn’t this admin attending meetings?  How can questions be answered when the admin is never there?  The deputy CAO was supposedly hired to fill in for the admin – where was she?  Why do we have staff that are dictating what functions they will perform? Weren’t they hired knowing what was expected of them?

Thanks, Mary Reynolds, Union Bay

New UBID Chair is trying but is being fed bullshit by the Admin

Kudos to Chair Healey for trying to right the rocky unlawful boat that we have endured. Unfortunately, Chair Healey is believing what the admin has told him.

Couple of quick facts. Turns out the admin read the letter from the lawyer incorrectly that the 2017 Water Agreement with KIP should not be posted. Now the admin claims the board voted to remove it from the website. Another falsehood. Let’s see the motion by the board, if one exists!

The card containing the videos is turned over to the admin after the meeting and then the admin MAILS it to the webmaster in Comox. Apparently, the July 25, 2019 meeting was ‘lost’.

Will be posting the audio of the meeting shortly.

New UBID Board approving minutes of unlawful meeting Jan. 17, 2019, tonight at Board Meeting

Well, so much for honestly, accountability, transparency – (although it is transparent that dishonest behaviour and fraudulent minutes are okay, again). Trying to sweep this under the rug is just wrong. We need elected officials who are willing to discard the old ways – do the right thing and refuse to approve minutes that are clearly from an unlawful meeting of five landowners. Approving the minutes of Jan. 17, 2019 is condoning the unlawful activity and indicates unlawful activity will be embraced in the future.

Just like the apology letter to Trustee Kaljur admitting there are no provisions to suspend a trustee, there are no provisions for omitting a trustee from a meeting and then passing that meeting off as a legally convened meeting with the admin submitting fraudulent minutes of that unlawful meeting.

The Jan. 10, 2019 meeting was unlawful and so was the one on Jan. 17, 2019, as Trustee Kaljur was intentionally not advised of the meetings so five landowners could manipulate our government. Fire this admin!

Where is the video of the July 25, 2019 meeting? Fire this admin!

WTF? Why are we now looking at becoming a municipality? The push for municipality has always been the ‘dream’ for Kensington Island Properties. To have elected officials as his flunkies.

Municipality was never discussed by the board prior to the motion brought forward at the Jan. 2018 by Trustee Bitten who apparently conspired with the admin without the knowledge of all trustees. Now it is in the letter asking for a governance study.

This is going from one extreme to the other. We can’t afford to become a municipality with under 800 households. If KIP’s empty promises are taken into consideration for the future, I hope the lack of anything in the last 15 years by this developer is also considered.

Let’s not forget KIP only has approval for up to 100 residential water connections. Our water license is for 1040 connections. According to the Water Agreement with KIP (which is finally reposted and buried on UBID’s website https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kQRjZrt4xybysMhW0RAKeLE_vsl7ORf3/view) the next block of connections the developer will apply for is in 500 connection increments. Not sure how this can be done since it would violate our water license just like the lousy expired 2011 WIA.

Ready for another chuckle? Kensington Island Properties has another new website with more bullshit about “Union Bay Estates” Big plans for approval of only 60 to 100 residential connections!!!

This post is a continuation of the long saga of KIP’s many re-incarnations and websites and oh so many promises: https://allthingsunionbay.com/2019/03/05/omg-kensington-island-properties-has-another-new-name-to-add-to-the-lengthy-list-and-yet-not-one-house-built-to-date-after-all-these-years-look-at-all-the-pretty-pictures-for-a-developer-with-only-6/

Geezuz. I can hardly wait to see all this construction when KIP only has maximum 100 residential connections approved according to the WIA from Oct. 2017 (which is secret but you can view it here: https://allthingsunionbay.com/2017/10/17/kensington-island-properties-aka-34083-yukon-inc-and-union-bay-improvement-district-new-water-agreement-published/ ) It’s going to be a miracle! Well, they do say KIP is the saviour of Union Bay don’t you know? πŸ˜‰

Correct me if I’m wrong – the saviour can’t build any residences without a sewage system. Where is it? We are drowning in promises and pretty pictures year after year. Where’s the ‘cash cow’ the twits were talking about?

New name too. Kensington Union Bay Properties Ltd. Add that to the looonnggg list.
