4/18/01 Motion to override Orders of the Day to add Agenda Item -- failed, needed 2/3 majority (this description is what was printed in the voter pamphlet and it is a typical example of what Chugach staff does to make sure these voter reports are meaningless to members trying to understand what is happening.  This was a vote to add to the meeting agenda discussion of the staff's resistance to the Chugach Consumers request for a year 2000 Chugach salary list.  Release was required under the reform bylaws passed by 80% yes vote of the membership in 1996.  Staff stalled, claimed they didn't have information on what employees were paid readily available, then wanted to charge for the cost of writing a software program to prepare such a list!). 6 n Y Y n Y Y n
