The packet parishioners have picked up from church for the general assembly on Sunday contains the January 31, 2010 minutes, the November 20, 2011 "Special Parish Assembly" minutes, but not the June 6, 2010 General Assembly minutes!
This is a bizarre omission! These minutes, from what was, supposedly our last official scheduled General Assembly, are critical to our community and should be included. At that assembly the Audit Committee presented its report - a report which is highly important to the official record.
Also at this meeting, Mr. Nick Bapis presented a report to the Assembly that was ultimately accepted as part of the official record of the meeting. That record/report should be included in the packet. At that time, Mr. Bapis had initially attempted to introduce and to have placed on the agenda discussion regarding this proposed resolution. His request, perfectly legal and normal, was denied by then-appointed Parish Council. The document was, however, distributed to the attending membership at the assembly in hard copy.
Despite the Parish Council's refusal to place this discussion on the agenda, a resolution, based on the initial document, was ultimately discussed, passed and was voted to be included in the official record and minutes of that June 6, 2010 meeting.
Additionally, in that meeting, the assembly accepted to remove from the Treasurer's (Mr. Floor’s) report the $1.2 million as a loss. That amended detail should be attached to the original report, AND, that report should be included in the packet.
THE ULTIMATE QUESTION: WHY ARE THE MINUTES OF OUR LAST REGULARLY SCHEDULED GENERAL ASSEMBLY NOT INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE FOR THIS GENERAL ASSEMBLY!?
