A Statement of Issues, Evidence and Analysis is required to be submitted to the Appeal Board by MLPOS by August 17. A response is required by BC Assessment to the Appeal Board by August 31. It was noted that there will be no real news to report on this matter at the AGM.

b. Amendments to Constitution and Bylaws – Request for Board input

In order to comply with the new Societies Act, MLPOS will need to adopt a new constitution and bylaws (deadline November 28 2018.) Input from MLPOS Board members to assist in the reworking of these documents was requested.

  • Insurance renewal discussion

Board members discussed the two quotes received from on-Island insurance providers. It was noted that an “apples to apples” comparison was required, which is difficult given the two quotes’ differences. Also noted was the need to ensure that the tidal grid is included in MLPOS’ coverage.

  • Items for inclusion at AGM

Board members discussed the advantages and disadvantages of holding the AGM later in the year. Also under discussion were issues around having two members of the same household sitting on the MLPOS Board at the same time. The following two motions were made to be forwarded to the membership for discussion at the AGM:

Moved by Peter Morton

Seconded by Wally Foster

That Section 17 of the Bylaws of the Magic Lake Property Owners’ Society be amended by substituting the word “October” for the word “September.”
