NCG Updates January 18, 2014
At the last board meeting January 11th we continued discussion about information being gathered by the board about EKO compost/compost containing bio solids. We also took comments and questions from community members that attended. Because the meeting ran over time, we were unable to vote on a final ballot for our January 25th General Meeting. It appears we need to clarify what our Rules and By-Laws statements about organic management mean to our community. It is required by our by- laws that we vote on any changes to these documents as a community. That being stated, we will use our General Meeting on January 25th to vote on what questions to include on our ballet and receive nominations for board positions. We will have a FINAL VOTE AND ELECTIONS at our General Meeting on February 22nd at 9:00 AM. Members may send proposed ballot questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving a message at 779-4044. Examples of questions are:
- Should we continue to accept donated compost from Maui EKO compost?
- Should we require members to use only OMRI certified compost?
- Should we allow members to continue to use Maui EKO compost at their own discretion?
Because this notice is being posted three weeks ahead, members will be able to vote by proxy (absentee). Final ballots and instructions will be posted at the earliest possible date. The links and data compiled by the board will be posted as soon as the last of our board members who were unable to attend the meeting turn in their data. Members can read them on their own and form their own opinions.
