Individuals Had Valid Claims Challenging the Adequacy of District’s Meeting Agendas

Roger Gifford and Kimberly Olson sued the Hornbrook Community Services District regarding various issues with the District’s posted agendas for three Board meetings. First, for the District’s August 16, 2016 meeting, the agenda indicated that the District would be considering payment of the quarterly premium for the State Compensation Insurance Fund. The agenda indicated that the quarterly premium amounted to $285.75. However, when the item came up for discussion at the August meeting, the Board Secretary indicated that she had received additional communications from the State Compensation Insurance Fund and that the amount of the quarterly premium would be higher than the amount stated on the agenda. Without offering any explanation as to why the amount changed, the Secretary insisted the District approve the new demand for payment.
