Last October, the River Hill Community Association Board of Directors appointed a committee to study these questions and other concerns about the current election procedures and guidelines. Led by Board member Janet Munro and assisted by Village residents Richard Thomas and B. Aletta Nonyane, this committee produced a briefing package presented to the Board of Directors at their December 14 meeting. The Power Point presentation can be accessed at www.villageofriverhill.org/briefing-package-from-board-of-directors-dec-14-work-session. The answers to the questions found at the beginning of this article are contained in the presentation.
The Board of Directors has requested that the committee seek legal opinions on issues involving the Charter and Bylaws and begin the process of updating the election procedures for the upcoming Village Elections to be held in April 2022. Interested residents should plan to listen to the Special Meeting of the Board of Directors and the Elections Procedures Review Committee. The meeting is scheduled to be held virtually on January 18.
