Betty Moon Is Now Deputy County Clerk
BETTY MOON IS NOW DEPUTY
was decided in Executive Session at the 9/19/05 meeting that Betty
Moon would again be County Clerk (Deputy Clerk—we don’t know who the
clerk is) and would again do the minutes for the County.
There have been several meetings that no minutes were taken by “a
person”, but instead the tape recorder was relied upon. In
fact a few meetings ago, the recorder was locked in an employee’s
office and another recorder had to be found in time for the meeting.
The BOC has been warned and even reprimanded by people attending the
meeting about having someone to take minutes and the importance of
the minutes on more than one occasion. The TWG has asked for copies
of several meeting tapes in the past and were told, “The tapes
didn’t work.” All the warnings and complaints hit home at the
9/19/05 meeting. The tape stopped at 6:45PM. Mr. Myers tried
to get it to work again, and by 7:10PM he started taking minutes by
hand. All during the agenda item about the Four County
Development Authority, Steve Jordan’s presentation, and the BOC
comments, there were no minutes being taken and no tape running.
(This is why the TWG tries to have someone at every meeting to take
notes and see and hear what really happens.) Mr. Myers was next on
the agenda, so he couldn’t take notes while he was talking, but at
least he did have his own notes about what he said during that part
of the meeting. The BOC was hit again with complaints at the end of
the meeting. We expect better minutes now that Betty Moon will
again be in charge of doing them. Minutes of County meetings
aren’t as important for the present as they are for the future when
sometimes it is beneficial to see what was decided and/or talked
