Alert Poster Notes - Decatur School Board Meets Tonight

Again, our ever alert posters caught an important event. The MSD Decatur School Board will be holding a regularly scheduled meeting at 7:00 pm tonight, in the Board Room of the Central Office. This is following an Executive Session.

The agenda, such as it is, is posted online here.

Of particular interest to me is item 6.03 "Tax Anticipation Warrant Resolutions". I was told that the transfer of $6.2 million from debt service to the rainy day fund (last month) and from the rainy day fund to operating expenses (also last month), was so that a tax anticipation warrant would not have to be issued. Hmmm....

How many months....has this blog been online. How many MONTHS have people whined and said "I had no idea they were meeting" or "I would love to go if I had more notice" or wah wah wah "I didn't even know when they were meeting". Seriously; look backwards at the posts here.....you'll see what I mean about wah wah wah "I didn't know they were meeting".

ONCE AGAIN. For the last 15 years or so; and it's in WRITING with EVERY MEETING POSTED for the YEAR on the MSD website....they meet the SECOND TUESDAY OF THE MONTH.

How simple is that for you? Enough notice? Lets see......and here's the exact quote from the MSD website....

"Regular meetings are scheduled for the second Tuesday of each month and held in the Board Room of the Administrative Office unless otherwise noted. Regular meeting agendas will be posted to this website two working days prior to the meeting...."

Got it? SECOND TUESDAY of each MONTH. Been that way for years. Enough notice? LOL!

I think you people just look for ways to be negative. I think that there's probably 4-6 people that have absolutely no life; sit around and watch these blogs and nitpick every little thing that others do. Quit being so negative! Be positive! Reading backwards, on this blog, this administration and board have done nothing and I mean NOTHING legally wrong. Morally? Maybe; but that's a judgement call. They've all done what they think is best for our kids. "Wah wah wah! I don't know when the school board meeting is so I can't get involved." "I think I'll just sit on the computer all day and gripe and complain".

Ready? QUIT COMPLAINING. YOU KNOW WHEN THE SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS ARE. YOU HAVE KNOWN FOR the last 10 YEARS OR SO! QUIT MAKING EXCUSES! PUT UP OR SHUT UP!

Yuck. I agree with the title of this blog.....yea; I've "HAD ENOUGH INDY" lol!

You might want to re-adjust your thong, Gary. Your voice is getting a little shrill. :)

Had Enough Indy? said...

anon 1:23 - actually, they did break the law. Numerous laws, in fact. Unfortunately for us taxpayers, those particular laws carry no penalties.

Look; if any "laws" were broken then there would be repercussions! I mean; there's a difference between spitting on the sidewalk on Sunday and running a red light right? You're not going to get a ticket for one but you would for the other! Both are "laws" but both have different consequences. These Administrators and this Board of Education are all of the highest class. None of them are here for personal gain. Not one of them are here to "break laws". What; you people think they sit around and dream up ways to break the "law"? Not hardly. It's easy to dream up a conspiracy. You people believe that the Government was involved in 9/11 too? Aliens landed in Roswell in 1949 and the Government covered it up? LOL! Decatur Township is full of Teabaggers.....er.....Tea Partiers LOL! Ooooooh oooooh boogie boogie watch out for those black Government helicopters flying around your houses and trailers! LOL! Oh by the way; when’s the next School Board meeting LOL LOL LOL!

STOP IT, GARY...! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! NOT HERE FOR PERSONAL GAIN...OH-OH-OH, MY GOD, YOU'RE KILLIN' ME! OH-HO-HO-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...!!! PLEASE, NO MORE. YOU MADE ME ALMOST CHOKE ON MY WHITE CASTLE SLIDER, RIGHT HERE IN THE LIVING ROOM OF MY MOBILE HOME!!! BWA-HAHAHAHAHAHA! THE HIGHEST "CLASS"...CAN YOU IMAGINE??? OH-HO-HO-HO...NO, REALLY, PLEASE...ENOUGH, OKAY? I'M GONNA PEE MYSELF RIGHT HERE IN MY BEAN-BAG CHAIR! WOOO-HOOOO-OOOOH, MAN!

Seriously, man. Gimme a sec here, I was laughing so hard I've got tears running down my cheeks and my framed autographed 8X11 of Sarah Palin almost toppled off the card table. Listen... It's a good thing you're not a girl. You'd be in a family way all the time. You'll roll over for anybody!

Any news on the School Board meeting last night?

Anonymous said...

Was there a board meeting last night? I never know when they meet! Do they meet monthly? That's just like them to sneak off and have meetings and not let anyone know! If I knew when they had a meeting, I'd go and get involved!

Do try to get there before the board meeting starts. Hopefully you can avail yourself of some of their richly prepared catered-in pre-meeting dinner, paid for with funds originally set aside for our children. If I were you, I'd hold out for a slice of freshly baked cake, made from the same recipe that Diamond Don's dear ol' mom used.

Don't eat toooo much, though. We've got enough bloated people (not to mention bloated salaries) at Central Office already.

If you set an example of moderation while there, perhaps you can teach them the difference between "fine dining" and "slopping from the public trough". We could do with some moderation from those people. Be careful, as I've heard that oinking is contagious.

So loosen your thong and enjoy. We're counting on you to be a good emissary for the rest of us. Our best wishes will go with you, of course...but you're responsible for your own Bean-O and Rol-Aids

Bon appetit...

Well, yeah. You wear a thong, you definitely need the Bean-O. Ewwwww. Be careful, Gary.

Bravo - you go!!

By the way, it is "slyders" The original hamburger for White Castle was called a slyder. This has as more pertinence than almost all that was said here. Especially the nonsense about Gary. HEI, I am surprised you didn't delete some of anon 1;23 post since it was more on the money almost every comment you have made in the past six months.

Anonymous said...

Well, gosh...by that standard, wouldn't she have deleted some of your posts?

Why is Gary still around? I just read his news letter. I thought he retired. His last day was posted as July 1!

This school board is out of control! I would like to get involved a little more but with work and baby sitter scheduling, it's hard getting involved! You never know when they'll have a meeting. I only know about it from this blog! How can they not tell people when they meet? They post a meeting schedule but only a day or so ahead of time! I want to get involved but I can't because of scheduling. This board does that on purpose so no one can come to the meetings! They are totally out of control! Is there some kind of laws they are breaking by not letting people know about meetings? Shame on them!
