The new board will not allow dissenting correspondence from taxpayers to be added to or included in the minutes, only correspondence approved by or written by board members are included now, this “new practice” began in January 2017, many of these same board members have written dissenting correspondence on a regular basis insisting all be included in the minutes in years prior to 2017.
At privilege of the floor no dissenting questions are allowed and the “privilege” ends as soon as any question requiring and explanation is asked.
This board ran on “transparency” and the above is what we have received to date.
