Board Meeting Documents

Meeting agendas, minutes, and other documents from the last four months are listed below; use the "Month," "Year," and/or "Category" selections to see earlier documents.  The following documents are available:

  • Monthly board meetings:  agendas, minutes and librarian's reports, beginning September 2005; videos beginning April 2011.
  • Finance committee:  agendas, beginning February 2011; minutes beginning June 2011.
  • Other committees:  agendas and minutes for all such committees beginning June 2011; varies prior to June 2011.

Minutes of committee or full board meetings are posted after being approved, which generally occurs at the next meeting of that committee or of the full board.  They are posted under the meeting to which they apply, not the meeting at which they were approved.

The financial and librarian's reports presented at each monthly board meeting reflect the previous month's activity, and are dated with that month, not the month at which they're presented.

  • Prior to 2014, these reports were included with other documents for the month to which they applied:  for example, reports for June, presented at the July meeting, were included under the June meeting.
  • Beginning with the January, 2014, board meeting, these reports are included under the month at which they are presented: reports for June, presented at the July meeting, are included under the July meeting.

Note:  Board meetings were not videotaped from June 2014 through October 2014.
