In the spirit of openness and transparency, leadership would like to update everyone and relay some information regarding this issue.
Coy approached leadership about further postponement, not being able to get the wood removed by this Saturday, but rather by the 29th. Please find below in blue the solution and message that was sent in reply. Further, I know we’ve got volunteers on this thread to help move it, however if anyone wants to offer up a truck or other assistance, I’m sure that would be much appreciated. (I cannot speak on if the issue is a vehicle or otherwise, but if it is a vehicle, I know we’ve got that resource generously covered).
Lastly, we decided to share this information because we believe it should be open that we:
A. are acting with proper communication and openness (to individual party and general membership)
B. are still being reasonable and responsible
C. are not acting too quickly, sneakily, subversively, or in any way unfairly
D. do not wish to damage the wood
E. want to facilitate the timely and safe removal of the wood
F. are following a clearly established timeline
G. intend to uphold votes that are conducted appropriately, even if they are controversial to a few and not unanimous; this is a primary purpose and expectation of leadership
We have a duty to uphold votes of the membership; it is unacceptable to our democracy and disrespectful to the membership at large to do otherwise.
This is the amicable solution we propose:
Saturday, the plywood will be moved out of the Hive’s space and into the back hallway/holding area, not the back dock. The Hive will not be responsible for any loss or damage, nor be responsible should any disputes arise between other tenants or Garden Street as a result of the wood being there. This upholds the votes and removes the wood from the Hive’s space, but keeps the plywood from being damaged by the elements while you can make arrangements. This is with the expectation that it will be removed by your self-imposed deadline of January 29th. After January 29th, if the wood still remains, it will then be moved to the back dock as originally stated, under the roof with a tarp placed over it to help further protect it.
A post will also be made on the mailing list to update the membership, and request assistance to help find a solution to remove it. There are many members with resources that can be tapped when needed.
