Video of Reunion Power’s meeting in West Rutland May 14, 2012

May 18, 2012

Residents of West Rutland waited nearly an hour for Reunion Power and Nordex’s presentation on Monday to begin.  The first part of the video shows people waiting around.  Reunion Power’s presentation begins at 31 minutes into the video.  There was a glitch with the camera so the first 12 minutes of the presentation are audio with still photos, no video.  The video resumes at 43 minutes into the presentation and goes until the end.

Also of interest in West Rutland, citizens who have been attending West Rutland Select Board meetings were surprised to read in minutes from April 23 that the Select Board went into executive session and agreed to hire an attorney to negotiate a host town agreement with Reunion Power.  Citizens have been attending every Select Board meeting since town meeting in West Rutland and have learned that this town is not doing business in an open and transparent way.  Given the high level of interest that has been shown at every Select Board meeting since March, it is surprising that the Select Board chose not to inform the public and let them discover this significant decision by reading minutes weeks after the decision was made.  There also does not seem to have been any need to go into executive session for this matter, which should have been discussed in the open.  The Agenda does not disclose the purpose of the executive session, except to use the word “Legal”.
