Short meeting. Didn’t learn anything about the finances. They set the dates for the by election. Looks like we’re going to the polls again in November.
EDIT: I’d like to make a prediction based on what I witnessed last night with 3 trustees guessing about locations, times, etc. This by election is going to be screwed up because the admin hasn’t learned from past mistakes and the trustees are unaware of what the admin should know – IF there are at least 2 candidates since there won’t be an election if there is only one candidate. Here’s the notice posted Fri. Oct. 18, 2019. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1aye9Fvm0DzYTU4lWb_6VmHa79ZJ29prW#new_tab
Trustee Kaljur left after a dispute about an item not being on the agenda, again. How many times has this happened to Trustee Kaljur but no other trustee? Either the admin is incompetent or intentionally leaving items off. Kaljur provides information to prove she sent the item to be added to Hein Vandenberg but he stated he hasn’t received any emails from Kaljur in a couple of weeks.
One thing Kaljur brought up was the fact the Admin wanted to bill a landowner $3000. for an FOI. I thought the one for $1300. for the KIP/UBID water agreement was ridiculous, but this is crazy. What the hell could take $3000. of the admin’s time?
When the meeting adjourned I made no secret of what I thought about how this board is conducting UBID business. I have to give Hein Vandenberg credit. Hein approached me and told me he was aware of how I felt. Hein spent quite a while speaking to myself and another landowner. Hein spoke to many landowners who stayed after the meeting.
The one thing I want to mention from my conversation with Hein. He stated he didn’t receive any emails from Kaljur so how could he know what she sent? When I asked him if he confirmed receiving emails from individuals, he answered ‘yes’. I then asked why he didn’t answer my email from a couple of weeks ago and if he received it. Hein admitted it was a fair point as he didn’t acknowledge receipt. Kaljur couldn’t know her emails weren’t received, just like I didn’t know if he received mine.
Let’s get this conversion done.
