STAR CHAMBER MEETING?

STAR CHAMBER MEETING?

“Characterized by secrecy and often being irresponsibly arbitrary and oppressive” Merriam- Webster

 

The Ranch Board of Directors initially scheduled an Execute Session Meeting for May 21, 2021 and about a day later re-posted an amended date of May 25th at 1:00 PM for a “legal issue.”

Their posting did not clarify WHEN and or HOW a decision was rendered for holding the special executive session as required by Oregon Law.

Supposedly, the executive session was held, but as Association Members, WE DON’T KNOW.

Oregon has something to say about board meetings. Oregon law notes 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 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 disclosed to owners…”

SHALL VOTE IN OPEN MEETING?

When did the Ranch Board of Directors meet and vote for holding the May 25th Executive Session?

Further, “A contract or ACTION considered in executive session does not become effective unless the board of directors, following the executive session, RECONVENES in open meeting and votes on the contract or ACTION, which must be in the open meeting and included in the minutes.”

RECONVENE?

There’s no record reflecting any Special or Regular board meeting or the required vote? Additionally, there’s no record of the meeting actually being held or any ACTION taken?

SECRECY?
