Audit shows Pentucket's books are in good shape

(Continued)

Last Tuesday’s meeting was held after the committee’s regular business meeting from the previous week was cancelled due to inclement weather. When Chairman Brian Page called the meeting to order, both Jill Eicchorst and Chris Reading of West Newbury as well as Joe D’Amore from Groveland were not present. A question on quorum arose, but the committee decided it was not an issue. According to the regional agreement that binds the district, “a quorum to conduct business at regular meetings shall consist of a simple majority…and special meetings shall require not less than two members from each of the towns.” Eicchorst subsequently arrived after the meeting was underway.

At the end of open session the board went behind closed doors to discuss non-union contract negotiations.
