For years, Vernon School District trustees have been gathering on a Tuesday night for their public meetings, open to all who wish to attend.

This month, the regular board meeting was held Wednesday, in order to give all trustees a chance to attend.

In a well-attended meeting at Charles Bloom secondary school in Lumby, trustees passed three readings and voted in favour of amending the Rules of Procedural Bylaw.

The amendment reflects trustees’ decision Dec. 20, 2011 to set regular board meetings to allow for all trustees to attend.

For the balance of the year, the regular meetings will be the fourth Wednesday of each month.

“Trustees will be determining when the March regular meeting could take place since the fourth Wednesday is during spring break,” said district secretary-treasurer Randy Hoffman.
