And this is LEGAL in Mohave County?
This Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm.
I have NO idea why the people of Meadview start drinking at 9 am. Seriously???
It seems impossible for LMRFD to produce accurate minutes.
The LMRFD fire board meeting, as usual, started with Charlotte Kiffer pointing out mistakes in the minutes and corrections that had to be made.
Can’t a board member proof the minutes and email with corrections to be made BEFORE the meeting? They always sit there READING docs at the meetings.
It was later addressed that docs are submitted to them on Friday or Monday just before the meeting and changes will be made to allow the board members to be better prepared.
Eric Terrill motioned to vote to approve the minutes AFTER the corrections had been made, next month because NOTHING is ever done RIGHT.
Apparently Charlotte was asking for a reason, as she later requested an executive session to discuss staff issues after pointing out the constant problems with the minutes and mistakes NOT being corrected as indicated in the meetings and not all items being added to the agenda.
According to the chief, they printed the old version and the changes were actually made. Shit happens everywhere, but at LMRFD that’s just how they do business.
Incredibly, they have to consult with the lawyer about scheduling this executive meeting, wasting MORE money on legal fees.
Charlotte Kiffer asked about year to date income, expenses and budgets.Continue Reading
