*Video Snippet # 07: A/R LOG Review that included an update from Carl Harbour;


Bill Burt discussed HB 2534 that prohibits the use of discriminatory language in HOA Governing Documents. Ranch legal team assigned the task of reviewing all Ranch Governing Documents.


Burt commented: “…They wrote into this law, that we can change our documents with my signature and Julia’s signature. In other words, the President and the Secretary can actually change our documents according to this law, provided it has something to do with discriminatory comments-and only discriminatory comments.”



Video Snippet # 08: Canyon Village Sign Update;


At 10:46, Burt Adjourned to Executive Session for a “couple of legal issues” and apparently forgot to request a vote to adjourn to Executive Session as prescribed by Oregon Law.

Oregon law notes that public meeting minutes are to be kept, and when “executive sessions are used, 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 (Burt) 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…”
