Accessing the Meeting and Materials
The meeting did start on time. I was able to attend the whole meeting from 5:15PM until 6:22PM
I had the agenda. However it took several weeks for me to get the minutes. The meeting used a new type of app, Microsoft Teams. It was easy to get into.
Summary of Discussion
The Commissioners seemed to get to all the agenda items.
The Commissioners looked at the Statement. Stated it needed revision as it was 3-5 years old. Also they would have to have a public hearing to change it.
The Commissioners discussed the by-laws, as seemed "fluffy" and did not mention "race."
All Commissioners are watching a video about The Public Records Act so that they know what has to be made public in a meeting. Some letters may have to be made public.
Compensation for 2 high School students was discussed, about $50 per meeting. The Commission has a budget of $6000 per year.
The meeting ended with several ad-hoc committees being created to address the above issues.
