Election of Rural Water District’s Chairman Disputed. Minutes Not Approved at Annual Meeting
At a January 26, 2012 annual meeting of Hughes County Rural Water District #2 in Stuart Oklahoma, the minutes of 2011 annual meeting that was read by Secretary/Treasurer Janet Frederick were disputed by water customer (member). After this dispute, membership voted not to approve those minutes until the board of directors produced the handwritten minutes for the membership to review. The member disputed the legality of the election of the water district’s chairman – Jim Wilson in reference to term of office. Secretary of the rural water district read minutes of 2011 annual meeting that mentioned that Jim Wilson was re-elected at a 2011 annual meeting.
Another member – Ronda Talley, at the January 26, 2012 meeting made motion to not approve the 2011 annual meeting minutes. The motion overwhelming carried to not approve those minutes.
Prior to this January 2012 annual meeting, most of the board of directors told the membership that they did not know when their term of office expired. Many water customers in this water district had been questioning the legality of the term of office and elections of the district’s board of directors that the board claims to had occurred at an alleged prior meeting.
