Chairperson William Muhammad called the meeting to order at 6:45 p.m.
Chairperson Muhammad asked if everyone had a chance to read the previous meeting
minutes and if there were any corrections or additions. It was motioned, supported and
passed to approve the minutes as presented.
It was noted that the regular date for the January meeting will fall on January 2 when City
Hall is closed.
It was decided to cancel the January meeting unless an appeal comes in with sufficient
time such that it would normally have been able to go to the January 2 meeting. Should
that happen a special meeting would be called for the following week.
It was noted that the new Public Safety Director will start on January 3 and Chairperson
William Muhammad gave some background on the new director that he gleaned from the
department website from the city from which he is coming as well as from the Chronicle
A student from Muskegon Community College, Brennen Havermans, was present as part
of a class requirement. Prior to the start of the meeting as the board was waiting for a
quorum to be present, he was briefed on the purpose and procedures of the board. He
needed to interview a board member as part of his requirements and Mr. Carlos Florez
agreed to stay after the meeting for that purpose.
It was motioned and supported to adjourn the meeting.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:52 p.m.
The next meeting is February 6, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. in room 103 of Muskegon City Hall.
