Quarterly Deliberations

Quarterly Deliberations

The Board has implemented a process to discuss and consider pending action requests by the community.

During the Board’s quarterly deliberations of these requests, the Board will evaluate each pending action request with specific reference to work priorities already set for the year (the annual work plan) and determine the appropriate prioritization. The Board will also expressly consider any implication for existing staff capacity/resources.

The Board will provide a report about the outcome of its quarterly deliberations at a future Board meeting, as well as post information to this section of the Board’s webpage.
