Because issues occasionally arise that require us to revise the agenda at the last minute, we do not post it until the day before or the day of the meeting.  Also, board minutes are not posted until they are approved at the next month's meeting.  For example, August's minutes are not approved until the September board meeting, so they would not be uploaded to this site until after the September meeting.  Therefore, while it may appear that this site is not updated, that is usually not the case. 

In order to post the Agendas and Minutes in a timely fashion and to preserve the integrity of the original documents, all pages are presented in PDF format.  In the document column, select the month you wish to view. Each month contains regular and/or special meetings.

The PDF format allows the viewer to see an exact duplicate of the document. However, in order to display a PDF file, your computer requires a special "reader" such as Adobe Acrobat®. If you do not have a PDF reader installed, you may download a free copy of Adobe Acrobat.
