Rehoboth Financial Committee Resolves Meeting Minutes After Christopher Morra Reports Complaint
FinCom member Christopher Morra filed a complaint against the Rehoboth Financial Committee for not including his testimony and motion in the meeting minutes. This complaint was filed on December 14th citing that the minutes taken on October 13th violate the Open Meeting Law. An entire discussion on Article 19, street acceptance on Franlee Drive, was completely absent.
This issue began because Morra’s motion was ruled out of order by the chairwoman and was not recognized as a conducted motion. Christopher Morra claimed that, because he motioned to recommend Article 19, it should be visible in the meeting minutes.
“My point is, this is the law. It needs to be included,” Morra stated. “…These minutes are supposed to be so anybody from the public can go to the clerk’s office and see what was discussed at the meeting.”
To conclude, the Finance Committee did vote on this issue and a 5-1 vote called for amending the meeting minutes.

The third step is preparation. This includes removing all folders, staples, or binders. The staff at OS+ repairs damaged papers as well as double-sided and different-sized pages. The fourth step is set-up. This means that OS+ modifies document scanning technology to the specifics of your documents.

The fifth step is the scanning and editing of your documents. OS Plus makes sure your documents look spotless! You will not find a single black mark, dark border, or distorted image. OS+ guarantees that your documents will be pleasing to view.
The next part of this process is storage. Your documents will, of course, be stored on a digital media. However, the digital media is entirely up to you. You can choose the form of a DVD, FTP, a backup storage website, or on an external drive.
The subsequent step is delivery. For rush delivery, OS+ can deliver the entire project over a website in a matter of minutes. Office Solutions Plus can also deliver your project by DVD or whichever storage form you choose while backing up your project remotely for disaster recovery purposes.
The final step OS Plus takes when scanning your documents is file dismissal. OS Plus can return your files intact, shred them, recycle them, or store them for you. We can dispose of your files in whichever way you’d like, whenever you’d like.
And there you have it: the 8-step process of OS Plus. When searching for a trustworthy company that will take good care of your documents, choose Office Solutions Plus LLC!

Not long ago, a new section to the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law was added. Beforehand, a lot of town business was taken care of without as much input from the citizens of the town. There wasn’t much announcement on the specifics of each town meeting and citizens did not know what would be discussed at each meeting. Attorney General Martha Coakley changed this.
Coakley enforced a new provision throughout the state. All public business must now be communicated through specific channels to the general public. However, some information such as distribution of reports or documents will not be provided. The way these announcements are made is either posted through hard copy or through electronic format.
Democracy depends on the open communication between the government and the people. Citizens have the right to knowledge of specific governmental actions. This law focuses on having most government meetings open to the general public. There are some exceptions to keep government workers from having every single discussion open to comments from the public. Any document handled at each meeting has to be filed with a folder of information on that meeting. Any letters, requests, proposals, or files must be available for the public to see. Overall, this law has provided a great channel of communication between citizens and the government.
Office Solutions Plus LLC takes part in helping government agencies, towns, and cities with such public meetings. OS+ handles meeting minutes within the government sector. We also take part in summarizing what has happened during a meeting. These summaries are put up in town for every citizen to see what has happened at the last meeting. In this way, OS+ takes part in facilitating communications between the government and the people.
OS+ satisfy all of the Open Meeting Law requirements and handle meeting recording and transcribing. OS+ handles meeting minutes for cities, towns, committees, and even corporate meetings. As mentioned, OS+ handles either verbatim or summarized transcription. So Office Solutions Plus does handle word-for-word transcripts!
