March 7, 2003
On Friday, March 7, 2003, The Rules Committee met to attempt to reach a final consensus on the Community Noise Forum Charter.
Present at the meeting were:
George Hudson, concerned citizen
Dennis Roberts, Deputy General Manager, Regional Airport Authority
John Sistarenek, Old Louisville Neighborhood Council
Dorn Crawford, Audubon Park
Mary Rose Evans, Airport Neighbors Alliance
Tim Chilton (committee chair), Beechmont Neighborhood Association
Bob Slattery, RAA Noise Officer
Bob Brown, Director of Engineering, RAA
The meeting was called to order at the RAA offices at 1:07 PM. In short, the committee members efficiently came to a consensus concerning the wording of the Charter. The main issues of conflict were found in the language of two paragraphs of the Charter. All issues were resolved when we agreed that language in the Charter clearly expressed that "funding support for programs...shall be addressed in the regular budgetary process of the RAA" was sufficient to please RAA officials.
The other major snag was settled when the committee came to consensus on the language "Members of the Forum shall serve without compensation." Period!
We have a completed Charter!
It is worth noting that all changes in the meeting of March 7 were very slight so the substance of the Charter is well known to all who attended the previous meeting. The full text of the final version is attached to these notes.
The committee has agreed that it is time to begin planning for a first organizational meeting for the new Forum. We have already decided on a time and a place: 6:00PM, Thursday April 17, 2003 at the RAA offices in the First National Tower at 5th and Main.
NOW is the time to begin all of the necessary naming of designated representatives by the various stake holders. Obviously, all interested parties will be mailed copies of our charter.
The meeting was adjourned in a timely manner.
