Here is my email to Madam Chairman in response to this notice:
Prior to this meeting I would like to have the auditor’s report for my review as well as all legal opinions the district has received on the three topics we will be discussing. In other words, I do not want to go into this meeting with no information about the topics to be discussed as this would not be conducive to a thoughtful and informed vote. As chairman I’m sure you want your members as fully informed as possible on all issues coming for a vote.
UPDATE July 11, 2014 4 p.m. : After SAU business hours on July 10, I received notification that the invoices were ready for inspection. Still no word on reading lawyer’s letter or receiving the audit in advance.
UPDATE July 16, 2014: Going into this meeting on empty. No agenda has been circulated nor have any background materials whatsoever. I have been told by the chairman that the public will be allowed to make comments AFTER each agenda item. This is a switch from the usual procedure which requires public comment BEFORE each agenda item. I have also learned, though not from the chairman, that the purpose of the meeting is informational only and no votes will be taken.
