After taking the summer off, the Roosevelt Island Board of Directors will be holding their next meeting on Thursday, September 17. According to RIOC President Steve Shane, this will be the first meeting in which the Board Books have been done away with and replaced with electronically disseminated information. It will be interesting over the coming months to see if the electronic dissemination of information makes for a more timely and effiecient data flow from RIOC Management to the Board given that Board Members have complained in the past of not receiving relevant information in time to have it evaluated prior to casting a vote during a Board Meeting.

A Town Hall Meeting in which Roosevelt Island residents can ask questions of RIOC Board members follows the Board meeting. Below is the Amended Agenda for the September 17th meeting of the Roosevelt Island Board of Directors
