A loyal reader sent me the following from the June 17th minutes from the Ypsilanti Planning Commission:
Review of Bylaws
After review of the bylaws, Commissioner Lenart moved to strike Section 4 of Article VIII that requires the Open Meetings Act apply for advisory committees. This would eliminate the need for sub-committees to post the meeting schedule, taking minutes, etc. It is his opinion that there is protection for these boards by being an advisory capacity rather than a regularly seated board, especially since these sub-committees are for an exchange of ideas rather than making decisions. The motion was supported by Commissioner Andrews. No action was taken on the motion. After further discussion, Commissioner Lenart moved to amend Section 4 of Article VII as discussed for consideration at the next Planning meeting, subject to an opinion by the City Attorney (Support: R. Andrews). A roll call vote was taken with a vote of 5:1. Commissioner Johnson opposed.
The worst thing about this secret meeting is it conflicts with the secret meetings I have. Someone needs to post a schedule of all of our secret meetings so we can coordinate them better.
Editor’s Note: Today’s post was completely plagiarized. Fortunately, the source came from from a secret meeting, and as a result, there were no minutes.
