The Slaton Economic Development Corporation is another step closer in its transition from Type A to a Type B, discussing their new bylaws and board Thursday morning (Dec. 12) during its regular monthly meeting.
Barbara Hopper, Executive Director, read the bylaws that would be incorporated in the new transition.
She told them of some changes that were made to the bylaws in order to clarify some issues.
One was regarding the election of the president and vice president. “It did say ‘neither the office of the president or the vice president’ may be held by – it did say ‘a council member.’ Now it says ‘mayor or council member,’,” she said, adding that the person who worked on the bylaws had left that out.
Another was the executive director and part-time or full time employees. Hopper said currently the bylaws say they have to follow the current policies of the City of Slaton.
