NORTH CREEK In a flurry of largely procedural resolutions Monday, July 9, the Johnsburg Central School Board organized itself in preparation for the coming 2012-2013 school year.
The board unanimously re-elected William Conner as board president and Erwin Morris as board vice president.
District Clerk Janice Conner administered the oath of office to the entire board, including newly re-elected member Mark Richards and newly elected member Rachel DeGroat. DeGroat filled the seat formerly occupied by Frank Morehouse who did not seek re-election.
Board President Conner then read through dozens of resolutions, nearly 80 resolutions in all, many of which appointed or reappointed class advisors, coaches and district officers. Other resolutions designated the district’s official bank and newspaper of record, set wage rates for various positions or sought approval of a particular person tasked to do a particular assignment; attorney of record or physician of record, or district purchasing agent or official check signer, etc.
After Conner read each resolution, one board member or another would move that the resolution be approved and another board member would second the motion. In each instance, for more than six dozen resolutions, with little or no discussion, the voting was unanimous.
Following the resolutions, the board entertained a couple of comments from the three members of the public and one newspaper reporter in attendance and proceeded to adjourn to executive session to discuss contract negotiations. No action was taken after the executive session.
The Johnsburg Central School Board will convene for its next meeting at 7 p.m., Monday, Aug. 13 at the school.
