Governing Board has yet to consider 60 day purchase option of Sedona property
As a part of the deal settling the land issue at the Sedona campus, the landowner offered the Community College a 60 day option to purchase a parcel of land and building adjacent the campus. It appears the 60 days to exercise the option have passed and that the Governing Board has not bothered to publicly discuss the pros and cons of such a purpose. As of the October 15 Board meeting, it had apparently left any decision on the purchase to the College Administration.
It is known that the Administration toured the option property. The decision by the Board to not discuss the option raises a fundamental question of whether the Governing Board has turned major policy decisions such as exercising the 60 day option into the hands of the Administration. If so, many will argue that it has abandoned its duty to residents of the County.
