In order to have a special called board meeting, the notice must be posted three hours prior to the meeting. I called the Lumberton Library at 3:05 pm and a notice was not posted. I called back again at 3:15 pm and the notice was just delivered. Why cut it so close? But despite the semantics regarding the time the notice was posted. I'm sure the city clerk will swear she had the notice delivered in time. Thankfully, the librarian marks the back of the notice when they're delivered and since the premises are under video surveillance, it would be easy to verify when the notice was delivered but that's not necessary. The true issue at hand is the legality of the meeting. How can the board call a special called meeting when they're currently in a recessed meeting; a meeting that is supposed to reconvene on July 15, 2014. And that is the reason why they can't hold a special called meeting; they're still in a meeting. So, you can't call a meeting while in a meeting. This board really need to get it together b and take a moment to learn the rules governing their roles as elected officials.Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
