It was a very light agenda for the Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting Tuesday night (the regularly scheduled Monday meeting was rescheduled because of Presidents’ Day). Just the kind of agenda that can get bogged down in rambling discussions about small details and tangential subjects. Mayor Julie Van Domelen was not about to let that happen, as she continually brought the discussions back on point, and suggested that various discussions on side topics be brought back up at future meetings as agenda items.
