If this is how the board would like to see this motion reflected in the minutes, then that is fine. It’s just that as I read over the minutes, it sounds as though the motion was to keep the original motion that was made during a previous meeting. Hence the reason for clarification. However, if others feel as though this issue is settled, then I will not discuss the issue any further.
