BACKGROUND

 

On October 11th, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Cloverdale Community League (CCL Board) met for its regular monthly meeting.

During the course of this meeting, the CCL Board exercised its discretion to call a special meeting on matters concerning the operation of the rink for the 2017/18 season.  This special meeting was called in accordance with Article 3 of the CCL bylaws.  The relevant section of our bylaws is provided below for your reference. 

Article 3 of the CCL bylaws states that a special resolution:

a. Means a resolution at any meeting for which 21 days notice has been provided, requiring a vote of three-quarters (3/4) majority. A special resolution will be required for all Bylaw revisions, significant financial matters outside the approved budget and over $5000.00, policy issues, or other major issues as specified in these Bylaws or at the discretion of the Board

Two motions concerning the operation of our community rink were put forward to the CCL Board.

(i)                 MOTION: ”If we do not have anyone volunteer as a rink manager, hire ice maker/managers and the COE rink shack contract by the end of November then we suspend the operation of the rink for one season”.

RESULT: Defeated

(ii)               MOTION: ”Motion to hold a special meeting to present the pros and cons regarding the operation of the rink and rink shack to reach a decision as to whether to operate the rink for the 2017/18 season”.

RESULT: Carried

The CCL Board viewed the decision to continue to operate the rink as a major issue for the community.
