The board is going to retain a person qualified to assist the Admin with the negotiations now that UBID employees have joined a union. Too bad they didn’t keep the professional negotiator the Molstad board retained to negotiate a water agreement with Kensington Island Properties. The pro KIP trustees decided they had the qualifications to negotiate a water agreement even though none of them had any experience. They negotiated down – how was that a win?
Have to give Hein credit. He attempts to provide answers and went into detail as to why the Admin is teaching at NIC. Well, we know who gave a contract that allows flex time to an individual who was not qualified for the position and is learning one mistake at a time.
Apparently, the Admin has taken a course on the FOIPP Act. I will be submitting mine again which was completely ignored a year ago. This Admin was hired almost 3 years ago and has just recently completed the FOIPPA course, so all the FOIPPA requests were being handled on a ‘guessing’ policy which included ridiculous costs from $1200. to a whopping $2900.! So, how did the Admin arrive at those costs if he was ignorant of the FOIPP Act?
Was told the Public Works truck that was causing problems was fixed under warranty. Have been waiting a year to find out. Trustee Kaljur brought up the fact the truck was still under warranty when the previous board was talking about replacing it.
