ZBOA decides to publish agendas and minutes on Valdosta website

The Zoning Board of Appeals decided unanimously at its 6 December 2011 meeting to publish its agendas and minutes on the City of Valdosta’s website. This item was not on the agenda, but members of such a board can make motions anyway. Member Gretchen Quarterman suggested it. Valdosta City Planner Matt Martin said they could do it no problem. Discussion ensued. They all agreed to post agends before their meetings, and to post minutes after they are approved (usually at the next meeting, a month later). Maybe other local boards and authorities will follow this example.

ZBOA: Zoning Board of Appeals 6 December 2011

According to Valdosta City Planner Matt Martin today:
This is a reminder that your next meeting for the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBOA) is this coming Tuesday, December 6, 2011 at 2:30pm. Attached is a copy of the meeting agenda and also the draft minutes from both the October and November meetings.

Just like the November meeting, there are again NO public hearing items for December. However, we still need to meet (& have a quorum) to approve the Minutes and also elect officers for 2012.

ZBOA does not explicitly post its agendas, but the above appears to be the entire agenda for next week’s meeting.
