I finally received a little more info regarding the lead in the water issue-- see documents below. I still have unanswered questions, such as
1) Why wasn't the public and School Board notified immediately of the lead in the water rather than over a month later?
2) Was it a strategy to notify the Board and Public the day AFTER the elections?
3) Who knew about the lead in the water and took no action to secure the tainted sources and are they still employed?
4) When will results be received from the additional schools tested?
My colleague Laura Hughes made a request at the Board meeting last night to have the topic of the lead in the water to be added as an agenda item at the next meeting so we can discuss the topic publicly. However, it doesn't appear that request will be granted.
The School Board by-laws do permit the public to request to have it added to the agenda for discussion: Send an e-mail to the Board Chair at : email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Patrons of the School Division who desire to suggest items to be included on the agenda of a particular meeting shall submit in writing such request to the Chairman in care of the Office of the Superintendent at least fifteen (15) working days prior to the day of the meeting."
