On behalf of the community, I have just emailed the following formal request to members of the Board of Supervisors (firstname.lastname@example.org) Tom Hogan, Township Solicitor and Mimi Gleason, Township Manager were copied on the email. There are many unanswered questions concerning St. Davids and after several reviews of the last supervisors meeting, it is clear to me that this community deserves better from some of its elected officials. It is my understanding that Paul Olson will have returned from his vacation and will attend the February 22 supervisors meeting. It is important to note that by making the formal request today, it meets the timeline deadline for getting on the agenda. Agendas for Board of Supervisors meeting are done the Thursday before a meeting, so today being Wednesday, the excuse of being ‘too late’ will not work in this case.
Do I think that this formal request to add St. Davids Golf Club to next week’s meeting agenda will work? Don’t know. One thing I do know, is that we are not going to allow St. Davids to just be swept under the carpet and pretend it never happened. As residents of this community, we deserve better.
Dear Members of Tredyffrin Township Board of Supervisors –
I am asking that St. Davids Golf Club be added to the Agenda for Monday, February 22, 2010 Board of Supervisors meeting. Since the supervisors meeting of February 8, I have fielded many comments, emails and calls from township residents who do not support the supervisor’s decision to return the escrow to St. Davids Golf Club. There has been much discussion in regards to the township’s Home Rule Charter, policy and procedural errors and the precedent for developers working in this township, as set by the January 25 vote to return the escrow to St. Davids Golf Club. Residents asked many questions at the February 8 Board meeting, in regards to the St. Davids issue, which supervisors were unable to answer and due to stated attorney-client privilege, Tom Hogan was also not able to respond. As a result of unanswered questions, there is an underlying trust issue in this township towards some of our elected officials. In the best interest of our community, I formally request that St. Davids Golf Club be added to the February 22 Agenda of the Board of Supervisors meeting.
Thank you for your consideration.
