Good NewsThe March 20, 2012 minutes stated that the "2012 budget would be published in the next week or so".
The board has selected the former non-board member Assistant Treasurer Thomas Hampton to serve as Treasurer.
The board made a point of indicating that they had applied for extensions for filing 2011 taxes and paid the appropriate taxes for the 2011 fiscal year by March 14, 2011. Much better than last year's failure to track by the board.
Looks like the board is also looking into the differences in taxes paid to NY State versus NY City. Nice to see due diligence on the board's part for a change.
Bad NewsToday is April 26, 2012. No published budget I can find. I must have an entirely different opinion of the phrase next week or so then do the members of OSM.
The board has selected the former non-board member Assistant Treasurer Thomas Hampton to serve as Treasurer - unfortunately he was trained by the former Treasurer Paul Orwig who has persistently refused to publish financial reports for public oversight as required by OSM's own bylaws. Maybe we will get lucky and find Thomas to be more accommodating then his predecessor.
Also notable, still no blog on the 2011 finances nor has there been any attempt to publish an end of year financial report.
I encourage all of you to read the two petitions linked here and sign them. It is time OSM heard from its constituents!
