Trustee Schmitz asked why there was no ROI analysis. The contract was approved in a 3-1 vote, Schmitz opposing.
In a 2-2 vote (Wong and Tonking dissenting), the contract to provide an opinion on various provisions in the beach deed in the amount of $25,000 with special (outside) counsel, requested by the Audit Committee as well as the Ordinance 7 committee, failed to pass.

The Board unanimously approved proceeding with a scope of work to review and update IVGID policies relating to Dillon’s rule, employee benefits, and non-profit use of District venues.
No vote was taken on Policy 15.1.0 (Audit Committee Charter) in light of Trustee Dent’s absence. However, several sticking points emerged in the discussion. Trustee Tonking wanted a different selection process for At-Large Members from the one that was previously used where interviews were held and the Board voted to select the best candidate. Instead, she wanted each Trustee to each appoint their own representative. There was also some question as to the number of members and how the audit committee chair is chosen. Questions will be formulated for consideration by the Board at a future meeting when all Trustees are present.
The four trustees in attendance voted unanimously to reappoint a willing Trustee Dent to the Audit Committee.
Chair Callicrate led the discussion of possibly engaging Dr. Bill Mathis to provide training to the Board. Other than Trustee Wong, there was general support for the concept. Chair Callicrate will develop a scope of work and cost estimate for the Board to consider.
