On September 9, 2010, I wrote to the Pittsgrove Township Board of Education asking if would take more robust and comprehensible minutes of its nonpublic (closed or executive) meeting. My complaint is that the Board, which sometime meets in private for hours, often boils the substance of those meetings down to two or three vague sentences in the meeting minutes. This deprives the public, as well as present and future Board members, from understanding what was said and done during these private meetings.

My letter to the Board is on-line here and resolutions and minutes from three recent Board executive meetings are on-line here.

Readers interested in this issue are urged to attend the Board September 16, 2010 meeting and ask the Board to publicly comment on my September 9, 2010 letter.
