BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

 

Yesterday (6/29/21), Ranch Member Carol Orr posted an article titled, “Truth ORR Consequences” regarding CRR HOA DUES and comments made in an email by Ranch Manager Judy Lapora.

In the comment section, Ranch Member and candidate for one of the Board of Directors positions, Jeff Parcel stated in part, “Everything seems to be done in executive session and we don’t know how board members vote on any issue!”

Ranch Matters posted on May 27, 2021, a story titled STAR CHAMBER regarding a SPECIAL EXECUTIVE SESSION MEETING initially scheduled for May 21, and a about a day later they reposted an amended date of May 25th at 1:00 PM for a ”legal issue.”

CRR’s announcement on their website did not clarify WHEN and HOW a decision was rendered by the Ranch Board of Directors for holding the Special Executive Session as required by Oregon Law.

Supposedly, the Special Executive Session Meeting was held, but as Association Members, WE DON’T KNOW, it was behind closed doors.

To date, there’s no record-MINUTES reflecting any Special Executive Session Meeting actually being held or any action taken?

Oregon law notes when executive sessions are used, Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 94.640 ( 8 ) (b) and (c) state: “The board of directors of an association shall vote in open meeting whether to meet in executive session. If the board of directors votes to meet in executive session, the presiding officer of the board of directors shall state the general nature of the action to be considered and, as precisely as possible when and under what circumstances the deliberations can be disclosed to owners…”

SHALL VOTE IN OPEN MEETING?

No record of any meeting, Open or otherwise, reflecting a vote for holding this Special Executive Session, and NO POSTED MINUTES?

WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON BEHIND THOSE CLOSED DOORS?
