Here’s The Scoop … March 29,2010 LBTS Round Table Meeting … The Table Will Not Be Full …

ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION WILL NOT BE HAD BY ALL ….

Dear Readers … Behind the scenes this current Administration is still acting out either as if the election was still going on or the past majority was seated on the dais… Case in point is tomorrow morning’s Round Table …The 1st Round Table for this newly seated commission…BUT… in yet another unilateral decision it appears as if not all the commission will be in attendance due to a Town Clerk that cannot seem to be able coordinate a time convenient to the commission…preferring instead to seat a quorum as if it were a special meeting and having it at 9:30 am in Jarvis Hall on a Monday morning … A time that precludes most of the working public from attending or watching and more importantly prevents all of the working commissioners from sitting at the table to discuss the items on the agenda!…It is this writer’s opinion that this can also be attributed to the Town Manager not scheduling the correct day for the swearing in…(prev. post) …If that had been done as it was required in the Charter ….we might not have been in this jam due to the holidays …Arghhhhh….

We will need to see what happens at the meeting as I have been told some of the commissioners are not happy about this arrangement … They made it clear from the outset that meetings needed to be after their workday hours during the workweek …One of the reasons many voted for these Commissioners was for them to bring a new perspective to the dais still being in the workforce rather than being retired….

Here is what is on the Agenda…all are deferred from the March 23, 2010 Commission meeting … The backup from this writer is in prev. posts under LBTS Agendas/Meeting for the Mar. 23, 2010 Commission Meeting both the Agenda/ and the after meeting posts…/also Mar. 29, 2010 backup is still online at the Town website… http://www.lauderdalebythesea-fl.gov/town/backup2009.htm
