RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK IN PUBLIC COMMENTS AND NOT ON AN AGENDA ITEM.

I DO SEE THAT WE HAVE SOMEONE RAISE THEIR HAND.

>> THEY HAVE RAISED THEIR HAND, YES.

>> UNDER PUBLIC COMMENT.

>> OKAY.

>> JANE, YOU WOULD RECOGNIZE THAT CALLER AND ASK THEM TO MAKE IT A PUBLIC COMMENT.

>> I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND ENGAGE THE CALL.

>> PERFECT.

CALLER ENDING IN 9726.

YOU ARE LIVE WITH THE COMMITTEE.

JENNY.

THANK YOU.

AS YOU KNOW I'M A MEMBER OF THE DSC.

I WANTED TO CALL IN TONIGHT TO THANK ALL THE RDC FOR THEIR SUPPORT IN GETTING BACK ONLINE.

AND REENGAGING WITH THE APPLICATIONS FOR THE PUBLIC THEY REPRESENT.

WE VALUE ALSO OUR STAFF OF ALDEN BRIDGE.

I'M PROUD OF THE STAFF AND THE ELECTED.

WE WISH YOU THE BEST OF SUCCESS TONIGHT AND YOU'RE KICKING THE RDC'S OFF FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST GOING FORWARD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

GOOD SUCCESS TONIGHT.

THAT'S IT, JENNY.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THIS IS RANDY.

[00:05:01]

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THAT COMMENT, ART.

WE DO APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.

THANK YOU, AGAIN, GOOD-BYE.

>> DO WE HAVE ANYBODY ELSE THAT WANTS TO MAKE A PUBLIC COMMENT?

>> I DOESN'T APPEAR WE HAVE ANY OTHER CALLERS.

>> OKAY.

THEN LET'S MOVE ON -- FOR THE BENEFIT OF COMMITTEE MEMBERS, I'M GOING -- IF I REFER TO A PAGE NUMBER.

I'M GOING TO BE REFERRING TO THE PDF PAGE NUMBER AND IT'S THE PAGES ARE NUMBERED 1 THROUGH 33.

AND I DID NOT PRINT MY PACKAGE.

I'M LOOKING AT IT ON THE SCREEN.

OTHER THAN THE DESCRIPTION ON THE PAGE THAT'S WHAT I WILL REFER TO.

IF THIS DOESN'T WORK WELL, MAYBE YOU CAN MAKE COMMITTEE COMMENTS AT THE END OF THE MEETING AND THEN WE'LL COME UP WITH A BETTE WAY FOR THE NEXT MEETING.

OKAY FIRST ITEM IS ITEM CONSIDERATION WE GOT TO REVIEW THE ALL MINUTES.

[C. Consideration and Action of Minutes for March 5, 2020]

OUR LAST REGULAR MEETING WAS HELD 5:00 P.M.

MARCH THE 5TH.

AND WE HAVE THE MEETING NOTES IN OUR COMMITTEE PACKAGES.

I WOULD CALL FOR A MOTION THAT WE EITHER APPROVE OR DISCUSS THE MEETING MINUTES.

>> MOTION TO APPROVE.

LOOKS GOOD.

>> OKAY.

WE HAVE A MOTION FROM CLAUDE THAT THE MINUTES BE APPROVED.

>> DO WE HAVE A SECOND?

>> DAVID PRATT SECONDS.

.

>> WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND THAT WE APPROVE.

I WILL DO ROLL CALL FOR EVERY VOTE.

IF YOU DON'T MIND.

AND UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

THE MEETING MINUTES ARE APPROVED AS PRINTED.

>> NOW I GOT TO GO BACK TO -- WE'RE ITEM D OF THE MEETING MINUTES AND THAT'S

[D. Review and Disposition of the Applications on the Review List, “Exhibit A”]

THE REVIEW DISPOSITION OF THE APPLICATIONS ON THE REVIEW LIST, AND THAT WOULD

BE "EXHIBIT A." >> CORRECT.

>> SO IF -- >> WITH HAVE NO ITEMS ON EXHIBIT A TO REVIEW FOR THIS MEETING.

>> OKAY.

>> MOTION TO APPROVE ITEM B TO DISCUSS BRIEFLY IF IT HAD A SECOND.

>> OKAY.

WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE DISPOSITION OF APPLICATIONS ON REVIEW LIST A.

DO WE HAVE A SECOND?

>> YOU DON'T NEED TO MAKE A MOTION ON THAT.

>> YOU DON'T.

>> THERE'S NO ITEMS TO REVIEW.

>> I BELIEVE THAT IN ORDER TO HAVE ANY COMMENT OR DISCUSSION ON IT WE WOULD NEED A MOTION SIMPLY LIKE I SAID FOR PURPOSES OF DISCUSSION ONLY.

>> OKAY.

THEN THE FLOOR IS OPEN FOR DISCUSSION FOR APPLICATION ON EXHIBIT.

A.

>> DAVID PRATT SECOND.

>> WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.

>> ANY DISCUSSION?

>> YES.

>> WE HAVE A REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION.

CLAUDE, DO YOU HAVE COMMENTS?

>> I'VE REVIEWED THIS LIST.

EYE BEEN AT THE NUMBER OF THE MEETING.

I GUESS IT'S SURPRISING.

WE HAVE NO CHOICE TO ACCEPT.

I JUST THINK THAT WE NEED TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT SOME WEREN'T JUST COVERED A LITTLE BIT EARLIER.

BECAUSE STAFF HAS DONE A GREAT JOB BUT BOTTOM LINE IS WE NEED TO LOOK AT THOSE THAT NEED TO BE LOOKED AT.

THAT'S MY ONLY COMMENT.

>>CHAIR: OKAY.

JENNY, SINCE THESE HAVE BEEN -- THEY'VE ALREADY BEEN TO THE DEVELOPMENT STANDARD COMMITTEE AND THEY'VE ALREADY BEEN ACTED UPON, IS THERE ANY MECHANISM AT ALL FOR US TO DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN DISCUSS THESE AMONG OURSELVES?

>> I WOULD NEVER SUGGEST THAT.

>> OKAY.

I MAY NOT UNDERSTAND THAT.

>> IT'S DONE.

WE PASSED IT.

>> EXCUSE ME.

CAN I ASK A QUESTION.

[00:10:01]

>> GO AHEAD.

>> EXHIBIT A MARCH 5TH, 2020.

IS THAT THE LIST YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT?

>> WE'RE ON D.

REVIEW AND DISPOSITION OF THE APPLICATIONS ON REVIEW LIST FOR EXHIBIT A, AND THERE ARE NO COMMITTEE ITEMS FOR THIS.

>> BECAUSE THEY ALREADY HAVE GONE TO THE DEVELOPMENT STANDARD COMMITTEE; IS THAT THE REASON THERE'S NONE? OR BECAUSE STAFF WAS ABLE TO DEAL WITH THEM.

>> THE STAFF HAS ACTED ON THOSE ITEMS SO THERE ARE NO ITEMS FOR THIS MEETING TO REVIEW.

>> OKAY.

EVERYTHING THAT CAME IN WAS CAPABLE OF BEING REVIEWED AND DISPOSED OF BY STAFF.

IS THAT CORRECT?

>> THAT'S CORRECT.

>> OKAY.

DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER DISCUSSION FOR AGENDA ITEM D? NONE HEARD.

LET ME SEE.

>> CALL ROLL.

>> OKAY.

D.

NO MORE DISCUSSION? ON ITEM D?

>> OKAY.

IN THAT CASE WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM E.

[E. Report on Staff Approval Lists for March 5, 2020, April 2, 2020, May 7, 2020, June 4, 2020 and July 2, 2020]

AND ITEM EL REPORT ON STAFF APPROVAL LIST FOR MARCH 5TH, 2020 AND APRIL 2ND 2020, MAY 7TH, 2020, JUNE 4, 2020 AND JULY 2ND, 2020.

AND JENNY WHAT PAGE DO THOSE START ON?

>> THEY ARE NOT NUMBERED, RANDY.

BUT IN YOUR AGENDA, YOU WILL SEE THEY ALL MENTION I SAYS STAFF APPROVED LIST FOR EACH MONTH.

THESE ARE ITEMS THAT STAFF HAS ACTED ON.

SO THE COMMITTEE NEEDS TO ACCEPT.

>> OKAY.

>> APRIL 2ND LIST; RIGHT?

>> YOU WOULD ACCEPT EACH MONTH JOHN.

MARCH 5TH, APRIL 2ND, MAY 7TH, JUNE 4TH AND JULY 2ND.

>> WE'RE ON APRIL 2ND PRESENTLY.

>> MARCH 5TH WOULD BE THE FIRST LIST IN THE PACKET.

>> MARCH -- CLAUDE, MOTION TO ACCEPT MARCH 5TH, APRIL 2ND, MAY 7TH.

JUNE 4TH AND JULY 2ND.

ALL 2020.

>> I SECOND.

>> WE HAVE A MOTION BY CLAUDE AND A SECOND BY JOHN THAT WE ACCEPT THE RECOMMENDATIONS OR THE STAFF APPROVALS THAT ARE LISTED UNDER THE FOUR DATES THAT WERE INCLUDED IN THE MOTION.

DO WE HAVE -- I WILL CALL FOR A VOTE AND DO A ROLL CALL JUST TO MAKE SURE WE GET EVERYONE DONE RIGHT.

JOHN?

>> CAN WE HAVE BRIEF COMMENT AND DISCUSSION.

>> OKAY.

BASICALLY SAME DISCUSSION.

SAME COMMENT.

I HAVE NOTHING BUT PRAISE FOR STAFF AND DSC.

THE MYSTERY IS THAT WHEN YOU GO THROUGH DSC HAS BEEN HANDLE THINGS THAT ARE NOT MEETING.

THE QUESTION IS THE CREDIBILITY THINGS.

AND WERE ANY OF THOSE ONES THAT WE WOULD HAVE, COULD HAVE, SHOULD HAVE.

PERHAPS WE COULD HAVE DONE AS STAFF DID AND CONVINCED THEM MEET THE RULES, IF NOT WE PERHAPS COULD HAVE PROVIDED INPUT THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN HELPFUL FOR DSC.

AND IN PARTICULAR THERE WAS EVEN I THINK AT LEAST ONE THAT INVOLVED A BUSINESS AT LEAST KNOW WHERE IT IS WAS AND GIVE OUR THOUGHTS TO DSC.

THAT'S MY COMMENT.

>> OKAY.

THAT'S A GOOD COMMENT.

DO WE HAVE OTHER COMMENTS?

>> I THINK WE NEED TO RESTRICT COMMENTS TO THE AGENDA ITEM.

AND I THINK WE WILL BE FREE TO MAKE COMMENTS AS COMMITTEE MEMBERS TOWARD THE END OF THE MEETING.

WHEN WE GET TO THAT ITEM.

>> ARE THERE OTHER COMMENTS RELATED TO THE AGENDA ITEM E?

>> OKAY WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.

ALL IF FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

I WILL CALL ROLL.

I WILL CONTINUE THE ROLL CALL.

ITEM F CONSIDERATION AND ACTION CONCERNING THE ABSENCE OF A COMMITTEE MEMBER.

THE ONLY ABSENCE IS PARTIAL ABSENCE BY JOHN AND I SUGGEST THAT WE EXCUSE THE ABSENCE DUE TO TECHNICAL ISSUE.

>> I DON'T KNOW IF WE NEED A MOTION OR NOT.

>> I THINK HE'S BACK.

BUT HE'S MUTED.

HE SHOWED BACK UP BUT HE'S MUTED.

>> OH, YEAH.

JOHN, YOU'RE MUTED.

>> I DON'T SEE HIM ON HERE.

>> I SEE HIM ON MY SCREEN.

>> YOU JUST HAVE TO ASK HIM TO UNMUTE.

I THINK WE CAN CARRY ON BUSINESS.

I DON'T KNOW IF JOHN CAN HEAR US OR NOT.

I WISH HE COULD.

JOHN, ISSUE IS THAT YOU SEEM TO BE SELF-MUTED.

THE MUTE CONTROL AT THE LOWER LEFT OF THE SCREEN.

>> CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

>> A LOT BETTER.

>> YES, WE CAN.

>> OKAY.

>> YOU WERE COMPLETELY OFF THE CALL FOR A WHILE.

BUT THEN YOU CAME BACK.

YOU ALL BEAR WITH ME.

>> YEP.

>> I'M READY TO GO.

I SEE YOU.

>> OKAY.

GOOD.

>> I DON'T KNOW IF YOU SEE ME.

>> JOHN, WE STILL HAVE A QUORUM AND COVERED ONE AGENDA ITEM WITH OUT YOU.

AND THE THREE VOTES THAT VOTED WERE IN FAVOR OF THAT MOTION.

IT WAS IN FAVOR OF APPROVAL OF THE STAFF APATROL LIST WHICH ITEM E.

[00:15:36]

>> YES.

>> IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMENT OR INPUT.

WE WOULD RECOGNIZE YOU FOR THAT RIGHT NOW.

>> NO.

I AGREED WITH THE MOTION.

I AGREE WITH THAT.

>> OKAY.

GOOD.

AND WE NOW WE HAVE NO COMMITTEE MEMBERS ABSENT.

[F. Consideration and action concerning the absence of any committee member]

WE DO NOT HAVE ANY ACTION NEEDED ON ITEM F OF THE AGENDA.

OKAY.

RIGHT NOW IT'S TIME FOR COMMITTEE MEMBER COMMENTS.

AND I'M GOING TO CALL ON EACH COMMITTEE MEMBER ONE AT A TIME.

AND THE LIST OF THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS APPEAR ON MY PIECE OF PAPER.

IS JOHN IS FIRST.

JOHN, DO YOU HAVE COMMENTS?

>> NO, THE ONLY COMMENT I HAVE THE THIS IS NEW TO ALL OF US.

CERTAINLY KNEW TO ME BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER BEEN ON A ZOOM MEETING PRIOR.

THIS IS MY FIRST ONE.

SO I ADMIT I HAVE A FEW BUGS.

I CAN SEE YOU PEOPLE.

[G. Committee Member Comments (3 minutes)]

BUT YOU CAN'T SEE ME.

AND SO I HOPEFULLY I CAN GET THIS CORRECTED BY THE NEXT MEETING.

I WANT TO CONGRATULATE STAFF FORGETTING THIS APPROVED AND RANDY, AND EVERYBODY THAT'S RAISED QUESTIONS AND TALKED TO EVERYBODY ABOUT IT.

WE'VE BEEN IN THE WOODS SO TO SPEAK NOT KNOWING WHAT IS GOING ON.

I'M GLAD THAT WE ARE ABLE TO DO THIS NOW.

>> THANK YOU, JOHN.

CLAUDE, DO YOU HAVE COMMENTS?

>> OH, BOY.

>> THREE MINUTES.

>> WELL THAT'S ONE OF THE ITEMS. I GUESS I BETTER TALK REALAS.

I HOPE YOU CAN KEEP ALL WITH ME.

IF FIRST PLACE I AGAIN I WANT TO PRAISE STAFF AND DFC.

I THINK THE PROBLEM IS THAT THIS WAS OUT OF OUR CONTROL.

AND I CAN READ THE COVENANTS AS CAN ESSENTIALLY MANY, MOST OF OUR CONSTITUENTS AND COVENANTS ARE VERY CLEAR.

WE MUST MEET MONTHLY.

THE WORD IS SHALL.

WE SHALL MEET AT LEAST MONTHLY WHICH WOULD MEET OFTENER IF WE HAVE TO.

[00:20:06]

BUT WE MUST MEET MONTHLY.

AND SIMILARLY, THE REASON THAT WE WERE NOT ALLOWED WE WERE TOLD WE COULDN'T MEET AND WE WERE SLAPPED OUR HANDS IF WE TRIED TO MEET WAS THAT IT WASN'T FUNDED.

BUT BY GOLLY THERE'S ONLY A COUPLE OF ITEMS THAT THE TOWNSHIP HAS TO FUND UNDER OUR COVENANTS.

AND THE COVENANTS ARE PREVAILED.

THEY PREVAILED WHEN WE SEPARATE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION.

PREVAILED WHEN WE FORMED TOWNSHIP.

THEY WOULD PREVAIL.

WE'LL TOLD BY LAWYERS IF WE BECOME A CITY AND SO SKIPPING OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR MONTHS OUT OF OUR RESPONSIBILITY.

THIS MUST NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

AND I WON'T BELABOR THAT POINT UNLESS YOU WANT ME TO READ THE COVENANTS.

IT IS CLEAR.

AND IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FUNDED.

IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ACTED ON AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE TOWNSHIP WAS FUNDED FOR THIS.

AND DSC WAS FUNDED FOR THIS.

AND EVEN SOME OF THE VILLAGES WERE FUNDED.

WE WERE NOT EVEN ABLE TO SELF-FUND.

I DO SUGGEST SOME AGENDA ITEMS THE FIRST PLACE THERE SHOULD BE AN AGENDA ITEM TO ALLOW BOARD MEMBERS TO SUGGEST AGENDA ITEMS. AND THAT TO ME IS A GIVEN BECAUSE WE HAVE NO INPUT INTO THIS PARTICULARLY IN SPITE OF THE DIFFICULTY.

IT MIGHT BE PRUDENT TO EVEN SUGGEST IF OTHER MEMBERS AGREE TO HAVE AN INTERIM MEETING TO DISCUSS THE ITEMS THAT WE CAN'T DISCUSS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ON THE AGENDA.

WE COULD AND SHOULD I THINK EVEN IF THERE'S IN QUESTION ABOUT OUR RESPONSIBILITY OR WHERE IT ALL LIES, WE SHOULD HAVE THE ATTORNEY THAT THE PRESENT AND THAT'S NOT AN UNREASONABLE REQUEST.

WE'RE DEALING WITH SOME VERY SERIOUS SUBJECTS AND COVENANTS THAT WE CANNOT CHANGE.

DSC CANNOT CHANGE.

TOWNSHIP CANNOT CHANGE.

ONLY THE MEMBERS COULD CHANGE AND IT'S NOT BY TWO-THIRDS VOTE.

IT'S BY TWO THIRDS OF ALL OF THE MEMBERS AFTER THE CHECK OFF YOU WON'T FIND TWO THIRDS OF THE PARTY.

THERE SHOULD BE -- LET ME SEE AGENDA ITEM FOR NEXT SEPTEMBER MEETING AND FUTURE MEETINGS.

AND I JUST GAVE ONE OF THEM BUT -- OH, THE MINUTES -- THE PRESCRIBED MINUTE FOR GIVEN MEETING, IT WOULD BE NICE AND ALWAYS DONE IN THE ORGANIZATIONS I'VE BEEN IN FOR TWA -- ALL THE BOARDS AND THE COMMITTEES I'VE DONE THE BOARD CHAIRMAN OR THE VICE CHAIR HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE MINUTES JUST BEFORE AND IN ESSENCE HE HAD THE FINAL SAY.

HE COULD SAY, WELL LET'S DELAY THAT.

HE CAN APPROVE IT.

BUT I THINK THAT'S PRETTY WELL IN A NUTSHELL.

THE LAST ONE IS THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON THAT I KNOW OF THAT COMMITTEE MEMBERS MUST BE LIMITED TO ONLY THREE MINUTES.

AND I THINK THAT SHOULD BE ELIMINATED.

IT WAS NOT IN THERE UNTIL I HAVE THE DATE HERE IN 2010 WHEN IT MYSTERIOUSLY STARTED.

MARCH 4TH, 2010.

THERE WAS NO APPARENT OR DISCUSSION OR APPROVAL OF IT AT THAT TIME.

IT JUST APPEARED.

I APOLOGIZE IF I WENT OVER THREE MINUTES.

LET'S ELIMINATE THAT.

I THINK WE SHOULD BE REASONABLE.

IF NOT THE CHAIR CAN SNAP US DOWN.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU, CLAUDE.

>> OKAY.

WE HAVE DAVID PRATT.

DAVID, DO YOU HAVE SOME STAFF COMMENTS? I'M SORRY COMMITTEE MEMBER COMMENTS.

.

>> YES.

I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO THANK THE STAFF FOR STEPPING IN FOR US IN THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

AND OF COURSE THE DSC FOR DEALING WITH THE THINGS SOME OF THE DSC MEETINGS AND THEY ARE QUITE LENGTHY AND IN DEPTH ON THE THINGS THAT WE HAD TO DEAL WITH PREVIOUS TO THE COVID-19.

HELLO.

>> CAN YOU GET CLOSER TO YOUR MICROPHONE.

>> THANKS.

>> ANY WAY I WAS SAYING THANK THE STAFF AND HANDLING OUR MEETING AND

[00:25:05]

PASS THIS STUFF ON TO DSC.

I ATTENDED SOME OF THE DSC MEETINGS AND I GOT TO SEE IN PERSON HOW DIFFICULT THAT IS.

SO I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE.

I THINK WE ARE IN A DIFFICULT POSITION AND WONDERING IF THIS WOULD GOING ON AS LONG AS WE HAVE.

WE HAVE A SOLUTION TO GO FORWARD.

AND STAY WITH PROPER AMOUNT OF INPUT FROM THE COMMITTEE.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY.

>>CHAIR: OKAY THANK YOU, DAVID.

OKAY.

I GOT A COUPLE OF COMMENTS.

I'M THE CHAIRMAN.

I HAVE TO SAY I WAS COME PLAY -- COMPLACENT OF THE SHUTDOWN.

I THOUGHT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY OVERSHADOWED ALMOST EVERYTHING.

BUT AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS, I GOT TO THE POINT THAT, THAT I SAID WAIT A MINUTE.

THE BOARD AND THE DSC WERE MEETING ONLINE AND THERE'S NO REASON WE SHOULDN'T.

I STARTED BADGERING SOME PEOPLE.

YOU KNOW STARTING WITH PENNY AND JENNY.

GENERALLY MAKING A NUISANCE OF MYSELF.

AND AT ONE POINT I ADDRESSED THE DEVELOPMENT STANDARD COMMITTEE AND DAVID ADDRESSED THEM AS WELL ON OUR BEHALF.

AND WE APPRECIATE THAT, DAVID.

AND I TRIED ONE DAY AND COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO LONG IN FOR THE COMMENTS.

AND I ALSO ADDRESSED FINALLY ADDRESSED THE TOWNSHIP BOARD TO MAKE COMMENTS.

SIMILAR TO WHAT CLAUDE AND DAVID JUST DID.

AND THAT'S THE MEETINGS NEED TO GO ON.

THERE'S NO REASON FOR THEM NOT TO GO ON.

THE TECHNOLOGY IS THE SAME AS IT FOR THE BOARD MEETING OR FOR THE DSC MEETINGS.

EVENTUALLY, WE DID GET-GOING AGAIN.

EVERYBODY WAS -- WE ALL OWE A DEBT OF GRATITUDE TO ONE ANOTHER ON THIS THINGS.

BELIEVE ME.

TRUST ME.

WE WOULD NOT HAVE THIS MEETING RIGHT NOW IF I HADN'T STARTED MAKING NUISANCES OF OURSELVES.

SO I WANT TO THANK STAFF FOR OVERCOMING SOME RED TAPE THAT IT TOOK TO GET THIS GOING.

I WANT TO THANK STAFF FOR STAFFING THESE MEETINGS.

JENNY AND INGRID.

YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN TIME I'M SURE DOING THESE THINGS STARTING AT 5:00.

WE APPRECIATE IT.

ONE FINAL COMMENT AND THAT WOULD BE TO ASK JENNY IF -- TO ADDRESS CLAUDE'S REQUEST, IF IT'S PERMISSIBLE FOR THE ISSUES THAT CLAUDE BROUGHT UP IF IT'S WITHIN THE PURVIEW OF THIS COMMITTEE, THEN I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THAT CLAUDE'S COMMENTS BE PLACED AS AGENDA ITEMS FOR FUTUR MEETINGS.

AND THE THEY AREN'T, THEN WE NEED TO HAVE SOME MECHANISM TO EXPLAIN TO THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS THAT THESE ITEMS ARE NOT OUR BUSINESS AND NOT TO BE PART OF OUR CONVERSATION.

THAT'S PROBABLY OVER THREE MINUTES TOO.

I APOLOGIZE FOR VIOLATING THE THREE-MINUTE RULE.

AND BY THE WAY, JENNY, IF IT'S WITHIN OUR PURVIEW TO REVISE THE THREE-MINUTE RULE TO SOME OTHER DEADLINE, I WOULD LIKE FOR THAT TO BE ON THE AGENDA AS WELL.

>> WE NEED THE LIST OF THE TOPICS.

>> LIST FOR TOPICS FROM CLAUDE?

>> YES.

>> CLAUDE, ARE YOU WILLING TO E-MAIL JENNY WITH A SPECIFIC LIST.

>> YES.

>> I THINK THAT'S PROBABLY THE WAY TO DO IT.

MY UNDERSTANDING ANY OF US COMMITTEE MEMBERS CAN ASK FOR AN AGENDA ITEM TO BE ON THE AGENDA AS LONG AS WE MAKE THE REQUEST BEFORE THE 72-HOUR POSTING DEADLINE; IS THAT CORRECT, JENNY?

>> YES.

YOU WOULD MAKE THE REQUEST TO STAFF.

AND THEN I WILL REVIEW THE ITEMS TO BE CONSIDERED FOR FUTURE POSTING.

>> AND 72 HOURS IF THE POSTING DEADLINE.

WE DON'T WANT TO DO IT 72 HOURS AND ONE MINUTE BEFORE THE DEADLINE.

BECAUSE IT'S GOT TO BE READILY POSTED BY THAT TIME.

>> CORRECT.

>> OKAY.

>> ANY OTHER BOARD MEMBERS WHO WANT TO PUT ITEMS ON THE AGENDA ARE FREE TO ASK STAFF TO PUT THE ITEMS. AND STAFF WILL EITHER PUT THOSE ITEMS ON THE AGENDA OR LET US KNOW WHAT THE

[00:30:05]

REASONING IS THAT IT CAN'T BE ON THE AGENDA.

NOW, STAFF COMMENTS.

PLEASE MAKE YOUR COMMENTS.

[H. Staff Comments (3 minutes)]

>> JUST THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND THAT'S IT.

>> INGRID? SHE'S TOO FAR AWAY.

>> SHE SAID BE SAFE.

>> PLEASE BE SAFE YOURSELF.

ARE YOU IN THE SAME ROOM OR DIFFERENT ROOMS?

>> WE'RE IN THE SAME ROOM.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE HAVING TO WEAR MASKS.

>> OKAY.

WHO ELSE?

>> DID JOHN COMMENT?

>> JOHN, WE HEARD A COMMENT.

WHAT DID YOU SAY?

>> I JUST THINK THE WAY WE ARE GOING.

A LETTER OF TESTING HAS TO BE DONE TO MAKE THIS WORK.

I STILL THINK IT SHOULD BE REVERSED.

I THINK THE DSC SHOULD BE UNDER US.

>> YEAH.

JENNY, DON'T ANSWER THIS OUT OF ORDER.

IS THE REASON THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY REVIEW OF DISPOSITION OF APPLICATIONS THEY HAD ALREADY BEEN DEALT WITH BY THE DFC? IS THAT THE REASON WHY WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO LOOK AT? OR BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT CAME IN WAS HANDLED BY STAFF?

>> MOST OF THE ITEMS THAT CAME IN WERE ELIGIBLE FOR STAFF APPROVAL.

THE ITEMS THAT WE ACTED ON, ON BEHALF OF THE RDRC, WAS PRIOR TO DSC DECIDING FOR THE MEETINGS -- FOR ALDEN BRIDGE TO START THEIR ZOOM MEETING.

THOSE HAS BEEN ACTED ON.

>> THEY WERE DISAPPROVED AND MOVED ON BEFORE THE ZOOM MEETINGS STARTED.

>> OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THAT'S THE END OF OUR AGENDA.

AND I AM ASSUMING WE'RE GOING TO HAVE OUR NEXT REGULAR MEETING ON THE 1ST THURSDAY OF SEPTEMBER.

>> SEPTEMBER 3RD.

>> CORRECT.

>> AND I'M ALSO ASSUMING THAT WE WILL HAVE NORMAL LIST OF ITEMS OF APPLICATIONS TO REVIEW; IS THAT REASONABLE?

>> CORRECT.

>> OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

NO MORE DISCUSSION.

NO MORE NOTHING.

I THINK WE'RE READY FOR A MOTION TO ADJOURN.

DO I HEAR A MOTION TO ADJOURN.

>> SO MOVED.

>> WE HAVE MOTION BY I BELIEVE CLAUDE.

WE HAVE A SECOND.

>> I SECOND.

>> OKAY.

IT'S BEEN MOVED AND SECONDED.

ALL IN FAVOR OF ADJOURNING SAY AYE.

>> AYE.

>> WE HAVE UNANIMOUS MOTION TO ADJOURN.

I THINK I MAY BE OUT OF ORDER SAYING THIS.

I APPEARS THIS TECHNOLOGY IS FEESABLE FOR US TO KEEP MEETING WAY.

WHICH I HOPE IS ONLY FOR ANOTHER MONTH OR TWO.

BUT I THINK THAT'S WISHFUL THINKING.

EITHER WAY, I THINK WE CAN HAVE SUCCESSFUL MEETINGS FROM HERE ON OUT AS LONG AS WE HAVE TO.

AND I DO APPRECIATE THE EFFORT THAT EVERYBODY WENT TO NOT ONLY SET THIS MEETING UP BUT TO PARTICIPATE IN A MEANINGFUL WAY.

THANK ALL OF YOU.

WE STAND ADJOURNED.

I WILL SEE YOU ON SEPTEMBER 3RD.

THANKS.

>> CAN I ASK ARE YOU ALL SEEING ME AT ALL.

>> WE CAN'T SEE JOHN.

WE HAVE TO TURN THE VIDEO OFF.

THE MEETING IS ADJOURNED.
