Grafton Township Board Meeting & Meeting & Meeting

So how many times did the “Family Feud” Grafton Township Board meet in the first year since Linda Moore replaced John Rossi as Supervisor?

Past boards have met once a month, plus the Annual Town Meeting of Electors.

The Supervisor and Clerk get paid a salary, but the Township Trustees get $100 a meeting.

You can do the math to figure out how much the Trustees could have earned had they attended every meeting.

And with all the meetings since October, don’t you think there might have been time to approve the October minutes that were unavailable when I filed a Freedom of Information request?

Newly sworn in Grafton Township Trustee confers with Township Trustee Rob LaPorta just after being sworn in. Trustees Gerry McMahon and Betty Zirk are to the left and Trustee Barb Murphy is on the right.

Newly appointed Township Clerk Harriet Ford wrote,

“Apparently, the Township board has previously reviewed them and found them to be inaccurate. I need to review the tapes of the October meetings, which I understand were very long meetings, in order to prepare correct minutes. I will be happy to make the minutes available once they are approved by the Township Board.”

Ford then goes on to suggest Grafton Township Freedom of Information Office (and Supervisor) Linda Moore that she should advise me that

“to the extent that these documents are not yet available and they are are exempt from FOIA, because there are no documents to produce yet. To the extent that incorrect preliminary draft minutes exit, they are exempt from disclosure under Section 7(f) of FOIA. One the minutes are approved by the Township Board they will be made available for public inspection within 7 days, in accordance with Section 2.06(b) of the Open Meetings Act.”
