2. Board Attendance – Discussion. Action possible. (Gary Berger)
Gary Berger led a lengthy discussion about Attendance of Board Members. The group discussed the County Commissioners’ rule that after a member of a committee has 3 unexcused absences from that committee, the member is removed from his/her duties on that committee. However, the word “unexcused” is not defined. After considerable discussion, the Board came to the consensus that perhaps the reason for missing a meeting is not the primary concern, but rather the quantity of missed meetings is the issue at hand. Gary Berger asked Kerry Ahearn to draft an amendment for the Board By-Laws addressing Board Member attendance to be considered at the next meeting.
VI. CITIZEN PARTICIPATION: Items raised under this portion of the Agenda cannot be acted upon until notice provisions of Nevada’s Open Meeting Law have been completed. Therefore, any action on such items must be considered at a later meeting.
