There is information leaking that suggests TREC gathered a few selected inspectors before the Commissioner meeting started and explained to them how the meeting was going to happen. I don’t know if this violates Open Meetings but a decision on an agenda item before the meeting happens does not seem correct. Added to original post.
The Inspector Committee formed a recommendation about insurance for the Commissioners. They were to present it yesterday.
TREC staff disagreed with the Inspector Committee and issued an unusual opposition statement within the 10-day Commissioner meeting notice.
About 60 to 70 inspectors showed up at the TREC meeting in Austin.
TREC Commissioners apologized to the Inspector Committee for a procedural error that did not allow the Inspector Committee to discuss staff opinion, although that opinion was already known.
The Commissioners then sent the topic back to Inspector Committee and did not allow any of the inspectors who traveled to Austin to speak.
If you want to provide your opinion it is best to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stand tall friends. No matter what TREC does inspectors will adapt.
