Due to a technicality on notifying the public of the May 16 board meeting, the district called a special meeting, according to board president Mike McMillan. He said he called the State Attorney General’s office and was told if Silver had a special meeting within 15 days, there would be no infraction of the open meetings act.

On this agenda, all the board votes from the last meeting were called up again and re-voted to satisfy the situation.
