Rushford - Peterson discusses open meeting in preparation for forums

Due to several upcoming public forums, the R-P district has sought legal advice on regulations regarding to open meeting law. The district has been advised to follow protocol for published notice, as it does with board meetings, so regardless of whether a quorum is present at the forum, there will be no risk of Open Meeting Law violation.

A number of meetings are scheduled in the coming months, specifically relating to the school board and the November referendum. All events are open to the public. They include:

Referendum Informational meetings to be held Monday, September 22, 6:30-8:00 pm, at the middle school in Peterson and Monday, October 6, 6:30-8:00 pm, at the high school theatre in Rushford

Repurpose & Development Committee meeting to be held Thursday, Octover 2, at 6:00 pm, in the high school theatre. The meeting is aimed at finding a vision for the repurposing and redevelopment of current facilities should the referendum be successful. The meeting will begin in the library, but will break into small group discussion into the upper library.

A School Board Candidate Forum to be held Monday, October 13, 7:00-8:30 pm, high school theatre. Eight candidates are vying for three vacancies on the board. Candidates include Dave Ansell, Trevor Auman, Joyce Iverson, Dean Mierau, Evan Meier, Jon Pettit, Ryan Oian, and Len Strapp. Elections will be held Tuesday, November 4.

The open meeting discussion prompted school board member Taylor Peterson to bring forth a concern regarding board members remaining at the district following the close of board meetings. Citing an August meeting in which he returned to the location of the board meeting following adjournment, Peterson noted he was surprised to find all board members and some administration still present and conversing. “This has been going on since I’ve been here. It’s frustrating that it continues to happen,” added Peterson. “Something’s got to be done. When the meeting is adjourned, the meeting is adjourned.”

“That’s not my perspective,” responded Superintendent Ehler.

“It’s personal,” noted board member Valerie Howe. “No one is asked to leave. We’re just socializing.”

“It happens very seldom,” added board chair John Linder. Peterson was further asked by the board about the frequency of the instances and if Peterson had specific dates.

“Every ti .....
