No action taken in Executive Session. Open meeting called back to order at 11:17am. Complaint made by Sharleen, acting as an individual member of the board, against Isaac. Sharleen recused herself from the conversation. Discussion about whether Isaac was an employee or member at the time of the incident. Determined that Isaac was not on the clock at the time of the incident and therefore, the complaint is not a complaint against an employee, but rather, a member complaint against another member. William motioned that the board acknowledge that they have received the complaint, but the complaint is not to be put in Isaac’s personnel file and the discussion is closed. Ben seconded. Passed.
Adjournment: 11:36 am.
