One couldn't help but notice that the agenda for the meeting on Tuesday have not been forwarded to this site. Perhaps they got lost between Ortonville and Clarkfield.

PostSubject: Why does Mr. Lang not post Ambulance Board and Interview meetings?   Sat Jan 16, 2010 9:54 am

After reading the above post I did some checking. Below is a list of notices we received from Ortonville Administrator David Lang.

*** This meeting was about taxes and the public is only given three days notice? The notice was email on a Friday and the meeting was on Monday. If Mr. Lang treats all media the same then that means that either the local paper didn't print the notice or it did print the notice but people don't get their papers until Tuesday. Which would have been after the meeting took place. The law requires notices be posted at the city office. Evidently Mr. Lang thinks that is all he has to do and the media be.....whatever. It is ridiculous to think that people should come into the city office everyday to see what Mr. Lang has put up for notices. He puts out a notice to the media on a Friday afternoon when everyone is busy getting ready for the weekend?

# This meeting was for interviewing applicants. Mr. Lang has also posted notice before that interviews were to be given applicants for official positons. That makes one question why Mr. Lang did not give notice when the Ambulance Board interviewed its only applicant? Click here to see minutes of Ambulance Board meeting. Why didn't Mr. Lang post the interview of the Ambulance Board Director? While we are on that subject...why has Mr. Lang never posted the notice of the Ambulance Board? To my knowledge the Ambulance Board has never had a notice posted in the city office. Why does the Ambulance Board operate in secret?

we may trust to them for light.
