Addendum to the minutes: There were issues with regard to the proper Zoom link that was provided as it delayed some members from joining at the start of the meeting. Some members requested better instructions be provided with more accuracy in the future. Since this is still a process with a learning curve, but will likely be the way of the future, it is important that everyone is able to connect on time without missing any of the meeting. This situation will be addressed accordingly.
Due to the continued virus restrictions, a Special Meeting via Zoom session was held, after appropriate notice was provided via USPS.
