Will Richland 2 board members be paid for attending meetings of the Committee of the Whole ("Committee") that was approved on April 28, 2022?
Board members (and two trustees-elect) receive a per diem for board meetings (six members receive $340(?) per meeting; the Chair receives $400).
(All) board members can, but are not required, to attend meetings of the Committee. If they do attend, do they get paid?
How can the Committee meet without being considered a Board Meeting? If four board members show up, that's a quorum and it becomes an official meeting requiring (24-hour advance) Notice, Agenda, Minutes, etc.
Should they be paid for the April 28th special-called board meeting? It was announced as a board meeting.
It should have been announced as a meeting of the Committee of the Whole.
Why wasn't it? One reason is they probably couldn't have met in executive session. Had they met in the open, the public (those attending in person and those viewing on livestream.com/richland2)would have been privy to every word said and all the body-language "statements" of those board members attending.
