NIC Board of Trustees Meeting Recap 12/5/22

Updated: Dec 7, 2022

This board meeting is the first meeting after the November 8 general election. This meeting was supposed to take place on November 16 and was pushed back to November 30 to give the new board members time to get sworn in and sat before the end of the month. Because the region got too much snow and school was cancelled that day (😐) the meeting was rescheduled to December 5.

I’m going to hit each agenda topic in bullet point form; this meeting was almost 3 hours long and if you want to see the play by play you can read it on the Kootenai County Spectator Telegram channel starting here. The YouTube page has been updated with that meeting video and you can find it here.

This is a long and tedious recap with some spicy moments sprinkled in. I have created a drop down for each agenda item so you can jump right to that part if you only have a limited amount of time to read.
