  1. Thank you for responding--the WI Open Meetings Law merely requires that whatever is on the agenda needs to be posted 24 hours in advance. My motion was to "discharge from Committee" a specific MOTION--that was approved by the Board 19/12 and a motion to reconsider that action was defeated 19/12. So it is obvious the full Board want "ownership" of the primary motion and voted it OUT OF COMMITTEE. I believe some are trying to deny that fact by making it seem we did NOT do what we actually did by a vote of 19/12 (!) They will argue the vote was simply to put on the agenda a motion to discharge--but we already took that vote as a full Board. What should be on the agenda is the actual primary motion REMOVED from the committee--at least that's how I understand it. Peter
  2. The Executive & Legislative committee has not acted on a motion submitted to it over several meetings. At a full Board Meeting, I made a motion to "Discharge from E&L Committee my primary motion (in this case to establish an ad-hoc committee of the Board to engage an outside agency to review recent actions of hiring and firing which may be inappropriate.) At the full Board meeting the motion to "discharge responsibility for the primary motion" from the E&L committee to the full Board was voted in favor 19-12. (After a 10 minute break, another supervisor called for a motion to reconsider the previous action, which failed 12/19). Because of Wisconsin's Open Meeting Law, the primary motion could not be discussed until properly "noticed" (which meant it would be agendized for the next month.) There is a confusion as WHAT exactly will be put on the agenda! Some seem to think that the motion to "discharge" will be on the agenda; others believe we already voted (19/12 to "discharge") and that what should appear on the agenda is the primary motion removed from E&L committee ("to establish an ad-hoc committee of the Board to engage an outside agency to review recent actions of hiring and firing which may be inappropriate." Please clarify! Respectfully, Peter J. Vedro Sauk County Wisconsin Supervisor, District #15
