Item passed 6-0-1 (Trustee Hatton- Hodson)
There were no Blue Cards
There were no Trustee Comments
Comment by Dawn Urbanek- This Item should have been pulled for the following reasons:
1) District Staff continues to present the Board with contracts that have already been executed, and work has already started. Why is staff asking the Board to approve after-the-fact contracts? What would happen if the Board said NO to an after-the-fact contract?
at page 74 California Weekly Explorer - Effective Date: October 27, 2016. Presentations started in October.
2) The CUSD contract with Olson Hagel & Fishburn LLP is not in the Board agenda. This is a contract for legal services related to the investigation of Conflict of interest pertaining to Trustee Lynn Hatton -Hodson and her company InnovateEd. The original contract amount was $15,000. Staff is asking for approval to increase the contract to $25,000 with no explanation and without showing the contract amendment. Why are taxpayers paying to defend Trustee Hatton-Hodson in a Conflict of Interest investigation?
No Contract for Olson Hagel & Fishburn LLP was posted to the Agenda
