Deleting a vote from the minutes


Recommended Posts

The Board of Directors for our Hospital District recently unanimously voted to approve a motion that was properly seconded.  After an executive session with attorney, the board unanimously voted to "reconsider" the previous action.  Next, the board made the same motion it originally approved and this time 3 members abstained from the vote, which once again carried.


The minutes of that meeting reflect these actions.  The board voted to amend the minutes so only the final vote is recorded.  The board member making the motion stated this is appropriate because, in accordance with Roberts Rules, the minutes are not a verbatim accounting of the meeting.


Is it appropriate for them to not record the initial vote and the reconsideration of that vote in the minutes?
