Study Session – August 16, 2010
In the section entitled “Non-Native Vegetation Control,” Eggers corrected the spelling of the word “bowls” to “boles” (as related to Forestry and Trails Supervisor McFarland’s comment that “the trees were felled perpendicular to the slope for erosion control and ‘boles’ were retained”).
Eggers questioned how changes to commission meeting minutes were incorporated into the official minutes and filed. Dyssegard said the corrections were reflected in the regular meeting minutes of the next month. Eggers asked if the corrections could be reflected in the original set of minutes to prevent possible confusion. Dyssegard said she would check with the City Recorder and report back to the commission.
MOTION Eggers moved to approve the minutes as amended. Lewis seconded the motion.
