GOOD MORNING.

[00:00:02]

>>> WE WILL START OFF WITH AN INVOCATION.

WE DO NOT HAVE ANYBODY SET UP FOR AN INVOCATION.

IF ANYBODY WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER ONE I WILL ACCEPT ONE AT THIS TIME.

[1. Invocation / Pledge of Allegiance;]

>> I'LL DO IT.

>> ALL RIGHT, DR. MILNER.

>> FATHER, WE COME WITH YOU FATHER AND ASK YOU TO GIVE US WISDOM AND ASK YOU TO WATCH OVER US THIS DAY AS WE GO THROUGH A PROCESS FOR THE FUTURE OF THIS TOWNSHIP.

WE ASK YOU TO BE WITH US AS WE MAKE DECISIONS THAT ARE IN THE BEST INTEREST OF OUR COMMUNITY, FATHER.

WE ASK YOU TO GIVE US THE GUIDANCE IN A WAY THAT WILL HONOR AND GLORIFY YOU.

WE ASK YOU TO BE WITH OUR MEDICAL WORKERS.

WE ASK YOU TO BE WITH OUR FIRST RESPONDERS AND ALL OF THOSE ON THE FRONT LINE SERVING IN THIS COVID-19 CRISIS, FATHER.

WRAP YOUR ARMS AROUND THEM.

PROTECT THEM.

GUIDE THEM.

GIVE THEM WARMTH, FATHER.

GIVE THEM COMFORT.

WE ASK YOU TO HELP THOSE WHO ARE BEING TREATED FOR OR HAVE BEEN TREATED FOR COVID-19 AND THEIR FAMILIES.

GIVE THEM PEACE KNOWING YOU ARE THERE FOR THEM, FATHER, THAT YOUR KNOWING HANDS ARE THERE.

WE ASK YOU TO BE WITH THOSE WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONES DURING THIS CRISIS THAT YOU WOULD GIVE THEM CONSOLE LAYINGS AND THAT -- CONSOLATION AND LOVE AND THAT YOU WOULD WRAP YOUR ARMS AROUND THEM AND GIVE THEM SUPPORT IN ANYWAY THEY NEED.

FATHER, WE ASK YOU TO BE WITH THE LEADERS OF OUR TOWNSHIP, OUR COUNTY, OUR STATE, OUR COUNTRY AND LEADERS AROUND THE WORLD, FATHER.

YOU WOULD GIVE THEM THE INTELLIGENCE, THE GUIDANCE, THE GUTS TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS TO LEAD INTO THE FUTURE AWAY FROM THIS, FATHER.

WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL SOMETIMES OVER THE CIRCUMSTANCES WE FACE IN LIFE, FATHER, BUT WE ARE IN CONTROL TOTALLY OF THE RESPONSES TO THEM.

SO WE ASK YOU TO GIVE US CLEAR GUIDANCE, A PATH FORWARD AND PRESENT THE DOORS TO US, FATHER, YOU WOULD HAVE US OPEN AND LEAD THROUGH THIS AND LEAVE POSITIVELY THROUGH THIS.

WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD BE WITH EACH OF US TODAY AS WE GO THROUGH THE DAY FOLLOWING A PROCESS AND WATCH OVER US AND PROTECT US.

WE ASK THIS IN YOUR HOLY NAME.

AMEN.

>> AMEN.

>> THANK YOU, DIRECTOR MILNER.

>> GORDY BUNCH: WE WILL CALL THE MEETING TO ORDER.

[2. Call meeting to order;]

IN ACCORDANCE TO STATE LAW IT WAS POSTED 72 HOURS IN ADVANCE.

POSTING WITHIN THE TOWNSHIP BORDERS AT THE TOWNSHIP OFFICE BUILDINGS AND ONLINE.

WE ARE HOLDING THIS BOARD MEETING VIRTUALLY, AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH GOVERNOR ABBOTT'S ADJUSTED OPEN MEETINGS ACT DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS.

WE WILL NOW NEED TO TAKE ROLL.

DIRECTOR MILNER?

>> HERE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: DIRECTOR BROWN?

>> HERE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: DIRECTOR RIESER?

>> HERE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: DIRECTOR NELSON?

>> HERE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: DIRECTOR SEKULA-GIBBS?

>> PRESENT.

>> GORDY BUNCH: DR. SNYDER?

>> PRESENT.

>> GORDY BUNCH: AND I AM HERE SO WE HAVE A FULL BOARD AND ABLE TO TAKE ON THE BUSINESS OF THE TOWNSHIP.

[3. Receive, consider and act upon adoption of the meeting agenda;]

WE NEED TO ADOPT OR AGENDA.

>> SO MOVED.

>> SECOND.

>> GORDY BUNCH: ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF ADOPTING THE GENERAL DO SAY I.

>> I.

>> GORDY BUNCH: ANY OPPOSED? ALL RIGHT WE HAVE AN AGENDA AND WE WILL GO TO PUBLIC COMMENT.

[4. Public comment;* ]

PUBLIC COMMENT IS GOING TO BE HELD VIA DIAL IN IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR VIRTUAL MEETINGS.

WE ARE STILL OPEN TO PUBLIC COMMENT.

PUBLIC COMMENT NUMBERS WERE POSTED WITH THIS AGENDA.

WE WILL TAKE CALLERS IN ORDER THAT THEY ARE RECEIVED.

WE ASK CALLERS COMING IN LIMIT THEIR TIME TO THREE MINUTE MINUTES, AND WE WILL GO WITH OUR FIRST CALLER IF WE HAVE ANY.

>> YES, SIR.

THE FIRST CALLER IS ON.

>> GORDY BUNCH: FIRST CALLER?

>> HELLO?

>> GORDY BUNCH: YES, CAN WE HAVE YOUR NAME AND WHAT PART OF WOODLANDS YOU ARE IN.

>> I AM IN LIBERTY BRANCH.

>> GORDY BUNCH: OKAY.

PLEASE GO, SIR.

>> OH, OKAY.

SORRY.

I GUESS I WAS TRYING TO -- THIS MEETING IS RELATED TO THE HANDLING OF THE COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE ASSOCIATION, IS THAT CORRECT? I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: NO, THIS IS THE WOODLANDS TOWNSHIP BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING.

[00:05:03]

>> OH, OKAY.

SO IT IS ASSOCIATED TO THAT.

I GUESS I HAVE A COMMENT THAT THE WOODLANDS IS AGAINST THE CDC AND W.H.O.GUIDELINES OF MASKS IN PUBLIC PLACES AND I HAVE QUESTIONS AND WANT TO KNOW HOW THAT DECISION CAME TO TERM.

>> GORDY BUNCH: THAT'S NOT ON OUR AGENDA TODAY, BUT I CAN CORRECT THE STATEMENT.

THE WOODLANDS TOWNSHIP BOARD OF DIRECTORS WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORTS THE CDC RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE USE OF MASKS PER THE CDC GUIDELINES.

>> WHAT WAS THAT OVER THE WEEKEND THAT THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE REPORTED THAT THEY WERE SENDING A LETTER TO JUDGE JIDALGO?

>> GORDY BUNCH: THAT'S BECAUSE JUDGE JIDALGO'S LETTER IS ABOUT RESIDENTS AGES 10 AND UP CAN GET A THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE FOR NONCOMPLIANCE.

>> MY QUESTION IS HOW DO YOU -- I MEAN AS FAR AS I UNDERSTAND IT IT APPLIES TO MANY CITIES AND HIGHER FINES FROM WHAT I GATHER, AND IT IS A WAY OF GETTING PEOPLE

TO -- OR GIVING POLICE OFFICERS -- >> GORDY BUNCH: THAT I AM NOT ALLOWED TO RESPOND TO.

I CAN ONLY CORRECT STATEMENTS OF FACT.

ROBIN, ARE YOU MUTED.

>> IF I MIGHT, SIR, THE TOWNSHIP BOARD DIRECTORS MAY NOT ENGAGE IN A DISCUSSION FOR PEOPLE THAT COME TO PUBLIC COMMENT.

THEY CAN ADDRESS FACTUAL DISPUTES ORIE FER YOU -- OR REFER YOU TO STAFF.

THE BOARD DOES HAVE A MEETING LATER THIS WEEK, AND THAT IS A POSTED AGENDA ITEM.

YOU'RE CERTAINLY WELCOME TO COME BACK AND ATTEND PUBLIC COMMENT AT THAT TIME, OR ENGAGE WITH THE TOWNSHIP BOARD ON AN ITEM THAT'S BEEN POSTED FOR PUBLIC DISCUSSION.

>> THANK YOU.

THAT CALLER HAS DISCONNECTED ON HIS OWN.

WE ARE ON TO THE NEXT CALLER.

>> GORDY BUNCH: LET'S TAKE THE NEXT CALLER.

>> MY NAME IS ALYSSA MILLOY AND I AM ALSO CALLING IN CONCERN OF THE WOODLANDS HANDLING OF MASKS.

I FEEL THAT MAYBE NOT A THOUSAND-DOLLAR FINE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR STRATEGY FOR IMPLEMENTING MASKS.

I DRIVE AROUND TOWN AND I DON'T SEE THAT -- PEOPLE WEARING MASKS.

I DO KNOW THAT SOME OF MY NEIGHBORS HAVE TRAVELED ALL THE WAY TO NEW YORK TO HELP IN THIS CRISIS.

SO FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SACRIFICING AND THE PEOPLE THAT ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING AND FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE A PART OF A COMMUNITY WHERE WE THINK OF ONE ANOTHER, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE IMMUNOCOMPROMISED I FEEL A BIT FRUSTRATED WHEN I READ THE "CHRONICLE" ARTICLE THAT THE LEADERSHIP IS NOT TAKING THE STEPS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO CREATE A COMMUNITY I WANT TO BE A PART OF.

WOULD YOU MIND SPEAKING TO THAT?

>> GORDY BUNCH: THE ONLY THING I CAN SPEAK TO IS THE FACT THAT THIS BOARD AND/OR THE TOWNSHIP COMMUNICATIONS HAS 100% SUPPORTED THE CDC RECOMMENDED USE OF MASKS.

WE PROMOTE THAT DAILY IN OUR COMMUNICATIONS.

OUR OBJECTION IS TO HAVE A FINE BEING IMPOSED ON OUR RESIDENTS.

>> FOR GORDY, THE FINE, THAT IS A SUCCESSFUL WAY TO IMPLEMENT IT IN OTHER CITIES AND LEADERSHIPS AROUND THE COUNTRY, SO ASIDE FROM JUST SAYING YOU SUPPORT IT, HOW ARE YOU SUPPORTING IT? WHAT ARE YOUR ACTIONS?

>> GORDY BUNCH: THAT WOULD BE THE DAILY COMMUNICATIONS THAT WE PUT OUT EVERY DAY SUPPORTING THE CDC GUIDELINES WHICH ARTICULATE THE USE OF MASKS IN GROCERY STORES, PHARMACIES AND OTHER RECOMMENDED PIECES.

I CAN'T GO BEYOND THAT.

>> YEAH, IT'S NOT WORKING THOUGH.

IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS NOT WORKING WHAT IS YOUR NEXT STEP? IF I HAVE A TEAM, WHICH I DO, AND IT IS NOT SUCCESSFUL THEN I DO SOMETHING ELSE.

DOING THE SAME THING DAY IN AND DAY OUT, THAT'S NOT LOGICAL, IS IT, WHEN WE DO SOMETHING AND IT DOESN'T WORK WE TRY SOMETHING ELSE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: UNFORTUNATELY I AM BOUND BY STATE LAW TO ONLY ADDRESS

[00:10:04]

THE THINGS I CAN.

AS OUR ATTORNEY MENTIONED EARLIER, WE WILL HAVE AN AGENDA ITEM LATER THIS WEEK WHERE WE CAN HAVE A BROADER DIALOGUE.

>> YEAH AND I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONTINUE A DIALOGUE ON A DAILY BASIS BECAUSE THE SITUATION IS EVOLVING ON A DAILY BASIS.

IF YOU CAN'T SPEAK TO IT I WOULD LIKE TO AT LEAST KNOW YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT IT.

WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING MORE THAN WE ARE DOING IF WHAT WE ARE DOING IS NOT SUCCESSFUL.

>> GORDY BUNCH: THE ONLY OTHER THING I CAN CLARIFY IS THE WOODLANDS TOWNSHIP LACKS AUTHORITY TO ACTUALLY ISSUE ANY ORDER OR ENFORCEABLE ACT AS WE DO NOT CONTAIN -- WE DO NOT POSSESS ORDINANCE OR AUTHORITY.

>> THAT'S INTERESTING BECAUSE THEY DO ELSEWHERE AND I KNOW PEOPLE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD, LIBERTY GRANT, HAVE GOTTEN FINED FOR MUCH SMALLER, NON-LIFE-THREATENING OFFENSES SUCH AS CUTTING DOWN A TREE WHICH OF COURSE AFFECTS NOBODY'S LIFE OR WELL BEING, FOR -- WHAT OTHER THINGS? PUTTING UP CHRISTMAS LIGHTS WHICH IS A CELEBRATION.

SO I AM NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT THE CONSTITUTION DOES OR DOES NOT ALLOW THAT ONE THING WHICH DOES NO HARM WOULD BE ABLE TO BE FINED AND THEN ANOTHER THING THAT DOES TREMENDOUS HARM, REQUIRED TREMENDOUS SACRIFICE FROM MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY THAT I MENTIONED HAVE TRAVELED ALL THE WAY TO NEW YORK, COUNTLESS DOCTORS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD WHO CANNOT SPEND TIME WITH THEIR CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY ARE AT THE HOSPITAL FIGHTING THIS WOULD BE YOUR HANDS ARE TIED.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TYPE OF LEADERSHIP WE HAVE, BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT I VOTE FOR.

>> GORDY BUNCH: THE DISTINCTION OF YOUR EXAMPLE IS THOSE ARE COVENANTS THAT ARE BUILT INTO THE PROPERTY OF OUR COMMUNITY.

THOSE ARE NOT ORDINANCES.

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COVENANT AND AN ORDINANCE AND WE CAN EXPAND ON THAT IN THE MEETING WE HAVE LATER THIS WEEK.

I'M SURE MY ATTORNEY IS UPSET I ANSWERED MORE THAN I AM ALLOWED.

>> I HOPE WHEN YOU COME TO THE MEETING THIS WEEK YOU COME WITH SOLUTIONS BECAUSE WHAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY DOING IS NOT WORKING AND THIS IS A PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: OKAY.

WE CAN GO TO THE NEXT CALLER.

THANK YOU, MELISSA.

>> GOOD MORNING.

MY NAME IS MARK AND I AM IN CREEK SIDE VILLAGE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: OKAY, MARK.

>> HELLO?

>> GORDY BUNCH: WE'RE HERE.

>> AS A MEMBER AND A FATHER WITH A CHILD WITH A I'M MUPPET DEFICIENCY I AM DISAPPOINTED WITH THE MASK REQUIREMENT AND POSSIBLE FINE.

ON APRIL 23RD, JUDGE JIDALGO SAID SHE WAS LOOKING AT THE DATA FROM THE SOUTHEAST TEXAS ADVISORY COUNCIL.

THE NUMBER OF EMISSIONS WAS TOO HIGH FOR HOSPITALS TO KEEP UP.

THE HOSPITALS WERE ON A SPACE AND A PREVIOUS COMMENT SHE MADE IT CLEAR THE DISCRETION SHOULD BE A POSSIBILITY OF A FINE.

IN YOUR LETTER DATED APRIL 23RD YOU DIDN'T PUT IN A REBUTTAL.

YOU STATED THE CDC RECOMMENDS FOLKS DO HOLD MASK.

YOU PUT UNDO BURDEN WITH OVER STEPS.

SHE MADE IT CLEAR FOR POLICE TO USE -- TO PLEASE USE DISCRETION.

THEY LET THE OFFICER KNOW FINE THEM.

I ASK A POLICE OFFICER DO NOT FINE A PERSON IN THAT CIRCUMSTANCE.

WOODLANDS RESIDENTS GOING FROM WOODLANDS TO HARRIS COUNTY.

IF SOMEBODY IS GOING TO HARRIS COUNTY THEY SHOULD WEAR A MASK ANYWAY.

ASIDE FROM LIVING IN AMERICA WE HAVE DIFFERENT LAWS.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT? WHY ARE WE MAKING AN ARGUMENT BASED ON THAT? AND YOU DO HAVE A CONCERN ON GOVERNMENT OVER STEPS.

THERE IS A LETTER ABOUT PUTTING UP CHRISTMAS LIGHTS WITHOUT APPROVAL.

THEY MAKE A MODIFICATION AND THEY CAN MAKE YOU TAKE DOWN OTHER THINGS.

THE WOODLANDS BOARD IS BEING CRITICAL ABOUT CONSTITUTIONALITY ABOUT OVER

[00:15:03]

STEPS.

ULTIMATELY I AM GLAD WE HAVE PROTECTIONS IN THE FORM OF COVENANTS LIKE I AM GLAD JIDALGO MADE IT A REQUIREMENT.

FIRST RESPONDERS AND THE MOST VULNERABLE LIKE MY SON.

IN TIMES LIKE THESE AND ALSO IN PANDEMICS I HOPE WE CAN FOCUS ON HEALTH AND FOCUS ON THOSE LIKE MY SON WITH IMMUNE DEFICIENCIES AND HELP FELLOW CITIZENS.

I AGREE THAT THE MASK ORDER IS NOT PERFECT IT DOES GO A LONG WAY IN ESTABLISHING THESE PROTECTIONS FOR OUR CITIZENS.

AFTER ALL WE AS AMERICANS SHOULD DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO HELP AND PROTECT ONE ANOTHER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR COMMENTS.

>> GORDY BUNCH: THANK YOU, MARK.

WE WILL TAKE OUR NEXT CALLER.

>> THIS IS

>> GORDY BUNCH: WE CAN, CLAUDE.

>> I DON'T KNOW HOW TO MUTE THIS AND NOT LOSE THE CONTACT.

IN THE FIRST PLACE I AM A RESIDENT OF BALDWIN BRIDGE WHICH IS A REGION IN WOODLANDS, TEXAS.

AS MANY OF YOU KNOW I AM A FORMER BOARD MEMBER ON MANY AND MOST OF THE BOARDS THAT PRECEDED THE PRESENT TOWNSHIP.

MY COMMENTS ARE AGAIN TO PERHAPS TO EXPAND AND REITERATE SOME OF THE COMMENTS ON THE FOCUS ON THE FUTURE.

I KNOW THAT EACH OF YOU AGREE WITH ME THAT OUR TOWNSHIP, COUNTY, STATE AND NATION WILL RECOVER AS THE COVID-19 EASES OR HAS A VACCINE OR A CURE BECOMES AVAILABLE.

NOW IS THE TIME FOR OUR BOARD TO FOCUS ON THE FUTURE.

WOODLANDS IS UNIQUE IN TEXAS ESPECIALLY AMONG COMMUNITIES NEAR OUR SIZE.

WE ARE ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL COMMUNITIES IN OUR NATION.

WHY? IT IS PRIMARILY DUE TO OUR TEAM OF EXPERTS.

IT IS FOLLOWED BY A GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS AND SERVED ON THE EARLIER BOARDS AND DEVELOPED AND IMPLEMENTED THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS WE CALL WOODLANDS TOWNSHIP.

IT WAS SECURED THROUGH LEGISLATION AND ANNEXATION AND THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT IS NOW THE WOODLANDS TOWNSHIP CAN NEVER BE ANNEXED UNTIL 2057 AND AFTER THAT ONLY BY VOTER RESIDENCY.

HOPEFULLY IT WILL NEVER OCCUR.

OUR TOWNSHIP FORM OF GOVERNMENT AVOIDS THE NEED FOR DUPE PLAW LOCATION -- DUPLICATION WHILE PAYING TAXES.

ALL CITIES IN TAX TAX HAVE THAT BURDEN AND THUS OUR BOARD AND CITIZENS NEEDS TO FOCUS ON THE FUTURE AS THE ONLY COMMUNITY ANYWHERE NEAR OUR SIZE IN TEXAS THAT CAN OFFER LOWER TAXES AND AT THE SAME TIME OUR QUALITY OF SERVICES IN ANY CITY IN TEXAS CAN.

WE NEED TO ACCELERATE THE HELP FROM COVID-19 WITH THE FEATURES AND NEED TO ADVERTISE THE BENEFITS TO ATTRACT NEW BUSINESSES AND RESIDENTS WHO WILL APPRECIATE OUR LOW TAXES AND HIGH QUALITY OF SERVICES PROVIDED.

SECOND POINT ON FOCUSING ON THE FUTURE IS THE BOARD SHOULD EVALUATE AND ACCELERATE NEEDED MOBILITY PROBLEMS AND MOVE THOSE PROJECTS, MOVE THOSE FORWARD WHILE TRAFFIC AND INTEREST RATES ARE LOW.

PUT ROAD CONSTRUCTION FORWARD AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

THIS WILL PUT OUR PEOPLE TO WORK HERE AND WILL ENHANCE OUR RATE OF RECOVERY.

OUR CURRENT BOARD HAS FAILED IN THIS REGARD EVEN THOUGH MOBILITY IMPROVEMENTS WAS A PRIMARY NEED INDICATED IN MOST RECENT I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS.

>> GORDY BUNCH: THANK YOU, CLAUDE.

WE WILL GO TO OUR NEXT CALLER.

>> HI.

THAT IS THE LAST CALLER AT THIS TIME.

>> GORDY BUNCH: ALL RIGHT.

WE WILL GIVE IT ANOTHER FEW MINUTES TO MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO OTHER CALLERS CALLING IN.

SINCE THERE ARE NOT WE WILL CLOSE PUBLIC COMMENT.

I DID FAIL TO DO THE PLEDGES.

THIS IS MY FIRST TIME TRYING TO NAVIGATE OUTSIDE OF THE BOARD CHAMBERS AND SO MY APOLOGIES TO THE BOARD.

I DO THINK IT IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE GOVERNMENTS THAT WE

[00:20:01]

REPRESENT.

IF YOU WILL INDULGE ME I WOULD LIKE TO GO BACK AND DO THE PLEDGES TO THE AMERICAN FLAG IN TEXAS.

WE CAN START WITH THE AMERICAN FLAG.

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION, UNDERGOD -- UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

HONOR THE TEXAS FLAG.

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO TEXAS, ONE STATE UNDER GOD, ONE INDIVISIBLE.

MY APOLOGIES.

I DON'T HAVE MY NORMAL REMINDERS ON THE READY THAT KEEP ME ON TASK.

I AM WORKING ON MEMORY.

I DON'T HAVE THAT IN MY DOWNLOADED PACKET.

THANK YOU.

THE BOARD CAN HOLD FOR A SECOND I HAVE TO ACTUALLY READ THAT LONG REQUIRED LANGUAGE.

IT REMINDS ME WE SHOULD RECORD IT AT SOME POINT SO WE CAN JUST HIT PLAY.

>> I CAN READ THAT IF YOU WOULD LIKE.

>> GORDY BUNCH: IT IS NOT REQUIRED TO BE READ BY ME? I WOULD LIKE THAT.

>> IT IS JUST REQUIRED TO BE READ OR ANNOUNCED.

IF THERE ARE NO OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS DO WE HAVE A MOTION TO ADJOURN?

THANK YOU.
