I-20 Board Meeting Cancelled

A 5:00 PM meeting of the Interstate 20 Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors yesterday afternoon was cancelled for lack of a quorum. Only three of the seven board members showed up: Chairman Claude Minor, Secretary Charles Pritchard, and Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo.

See here the agenda.

Minutes of the 5/22/13 board meeting were also distributed.

See here the document.

Two new members will be joining the board next time it meets, however.

At the 6:00 PM meeting of the Monroe City Council, that body voted 4-0 to replace Minor with Ernest Johnson. District 2’s Gretchen Ezernack abstained.

Also, Council Chair Eddie Clark (District 4) will replace Kenny Wilson (District 4) as the council representative on the board.

City Attorney Nanci Summersgill said that in her opinion, the action of replacing Wilson with Clark was contrary to the group’s bylaws.

Said Summersgill, “It is clearly not in accordance with the articles of incorporation.”

The resolution passed with Ezernack voting no and Wilson abstaining.
