Here’s The Scoop…About that “Special Meeting”…Who Can Call For It?…..

CALLING FOR A SPECIAL MEETING…..

Dear Readers…Who can call a special meeting?…The Mayor…or two Commissioners….or the Town Manager…

It does not have to be an emergency….Case in point…the last “Special Meeting” in LBTS was called by Commissioner Clottey for DECORUM…on Jan. 26,2009!…

So this time around…with the Manager’s actions on Friday to request for Chief Gooding to be “reassigned”…any of the above could call for a “special meeting”!…

We hear that the Commissioners have been inundated with phone calls and e-mails…with anger and disbelief over the Manager’s decision…We also hear that the outrage is from not only those that oppose the Mc-Furths and their Gang…but CIC members who want the BSO to remain the LBTS Police!…OOPS!…

We also hear that this action will not go down quietly…Jarvis Hall will be full on Tuesday (June 30th) at the 7 pm Round Table meeting….and if the residents who support the Chief and the BSO are not happy with the Commission ….it will result in an even larger show of support to take place soon afterward…HMMM….The CIC/VFD July 4th Volunteer meeting takes place the following evening (Wed. July 1st) in Jarvis Hall at 7 pm!…OUCH!….

Wouldn’t it be something…if in 2009 the 4th of July parade has people yelling support for BSO Police ….de ja vue for July 4th 2007 and the  VFD!…WOW!…

Will there be fireworks…or will it be a  dud?….It’s a test for March 2010!…

Sec. 2-18.  Special meetings.
The mayor, any two members of the Town Commission or the Town Manager may call special meetings of the Town Commission upon at least six hours’ written notice to each member, the Town Manager, Town Auditor and Clerk, Town Attorney and Chief of Police, served personally or left at his usual place of residence. The regularity or validity of any proceedings taken at any special meeting at which a majority of members of the Town Commission and the Town Clerk are present shall not be questioned because of any omission or irregularity in calling such special meeting.
