Update 2: It looks like Amendment one is NOT going to pass (grandfathering). Director Burke is going on a very long-winded explanation about why he (appears) to be voting no. Blanford and Geary are saying it's equity versus equality and it's not fair to the kids who will be going to RESMS.
Geary is trying to make a point that all the parents in the room that want grandfathering will be there for their kids, no matter what. (Not sure that particular lands well with these parents.)
Pinkham was worried people would think he would support this amendment in order for there to be more room for Licton Springs.
Final vote 2-4-1 with Peters and Patu in favor and Pinkham abstaining because of the pending vote on room for Licton Springs.
Update 1: well, they created a new amendment around wording in the SAP. It's a bit complicated to compile here but it's more a clarification than any direct effect on the plan.
Staff also wants to take out the word "formerly" in front of "Spectrum" in the SAP Transition Plan. Peters asked if that means Spectrum still exists and Ms. Davies said yes. (I did laugh a bit to myself.)
End of update
The room is quite full for this portion of the Work Session. I expect that it will run late as the original Work Session for both topics - budget and SAP - was supposed to have ended at 7:00pm and this portion is just getting started at 6:53 pm.
General Counsel Noel Treat opened this with the explanation that first the amendments will be addressed - there are now three. Then they will vote for the plan with whatever amendments that are approved (if any.)
Sorry, apparently, they are starting with the plan; Treat says it doesn't really matter.
