DRAFT OF PROPOSED CHANGES
Voting Ballots to approve or reject the proposed By-Laws changes were mailed to every SC household and the ballot results were tallied by the Teller's Committee on Monday evening, October 28th. Unfortunately, not enough ballots were received and therefore, the ballot results were inconclusive. The SC By-Laws require that a vote of 2/3 of the membership (in good standing) is needed to either pass or reject the changes and since only 157 ballots (of the 240 households) were received, there were insufficient ballots to obtain a conclusive result. Of the 157 ballots that were received, 83% voted to approve the proposed changes. Given these results, the current (April 2011 version) of the By-Laws continues to stand until enough votes - either yeah or nay - are received to make changes to the existing by-laws.
The current version of the SCBC By-Laws was last modified and approved by formal vote by the membership on April 30, 2011.
Attached are the PROPOSED updates to the current By-Laws including the changes and modifications that came out of the reading/review at the General Meeting on November 17, 2018. By clicking on the DOWNLOAD BUTTON below, you can view these proposed changes. You will note that this document has been formated to show, by each section, the existing version of the By-laws (2011 version) followed by the proposed new language. If there is no change to a given section, it will be indicated as such. The CURRENT and REVISED language is follow by a brief description of the rational for the proposed change.
