The Secretary shall cause minutes to be taken of all meetings of the Board. The minutes shall record all actions taken by the Board. The minutes shall be public records and shall be available to the public. If requested, the minutes shall be made available in appropriate alternative formats so as to be accessible to persons with a disability.

The minutes shall also record the name of the person making a motion, the name of the person seconding it, and the vote. Voting will be via voice or by roll call. A member voting for or against a proposition may state the reasons and may have them recorded in the minutes if the member so requests at the time of voting. Minutes will usually state only that a motion was passed or not passed; if a count was ordered, the number of votes on each side; for roll call votes, the names of those voting on each side.

Minutes will be recorded as indicated in the current edition of Robert’s Rules of Order, newly revised.
