UPDATED: School Board to Hold "Public" Meeting at Resort

The (Vancouver) Columbian reports that the Battle Ground School District will hold a "public" two-day meeting at an Oregon mountain resort. It's "open" to the public .... who can get to the resort and pay to stay there.

The cost will be about $3,000 for Board members' and staff lodging. Battle Ground-area voters might remember this when the inevitable plea comes in a few months from the District for a property tax increase "for the children".

UPDATE: The Board decided not to hold the "open" meeting at the resort.
