Making short work of a packed agenda of discussion items, the Seven Lakes Landowners Association [SLLA] Board of Directors met for an hour long evening Work Session on Monday, May 9.
The meeting time change was prompted by a call for more openness and public participation in the planning and decision-making process — in particular as the Board begins to tackle the financial impact of last year’s Reserve Study recommendations.
However, the newly seated majority of four directors had to first clear an early hurdle brought about when two veteran Board members resigned shortly after the Organizational Meeting.
At the April 27 Open Meeting, former Director Bruce Keyser, Jr. who was unsuccessful in his bid to retain his seat in the last election, was appointed by a vote of acclamation to fill one of those vacancies. [A full report on the April 27 Open Meeting is available at sevenlakestimes.com.]
During the May 9 Work Session, the Board gave a unanimous nod of support to Anderson Lowe, who was nominated to claim the other seat. A formal vote on Lowe’s appointment will be called at the May Open Meeting.
