Salem Lakes Village Board adopts Salem meeting schedule

The Salem Lakes Village Board on Wednesday adopted almost exactly the monthly meeting schedule that the Salem Town Board had been using up to the merger with Silver Lake in February.

Starting in May, the board will have a regular meeting at which action can be taken on the second Monday at 7 p.m. The board also will have a committee of the whole meeting at which discussion will be held but no votes on the third Monday at 7 p.m. Both meetings will be at Salem Town Hall on Antioch Road.

The only difference  between that schedule and the old Salem Town Board schedule is the start time of the  committee of the whole meeting.

Since the merger, the Village Board had been following the meeting schedule of the Silver Lake Village Board, regular meetings at which action could be taken on  first and third Wednesdays starting at 7 p.m. Most of those meetings since the merger had taken place at Silver Lake Village Hall.

Trustee Dan Campion, a former Salem board member, proposed having regular meetings where action could be take on the second and third Mondays, but that motion failed.

Campion then motioned for a regular meeting on the second Monday and a committee of the whole on the third Wednesday. That motion passed with Trustees Bob Raymond and Bill Hopkins, both former Silver Lake Village Board members, voting no.

Earlier in the meeting, village President Diann Tesar asked trustees to consider how they wanted to move forward with committee structure.

Before the merger, Silver Lake still had committees of board members but Salem had largely eliminated them in favor of the committee of the whole system.

    We gave you this new government. Now all you want to is change our government to be like it was as the Town of Salem. What a mistake it was tho vote Taser in. Salem Lakes government needs to be developed as a fresh new start. 6 board members need to take a stand against her and the puppet master.
