The amendment and the resolution passed unanimously. Fawley said the board would hold a second vote at next month’s meeting.
While the language in the resolution reads the properties will be made available for sale, lease or sponsorship, several board members said they preferred the first of those options.
“I think the issue is, down the road, if it dissolves, then it’s back to us,” said Jeff Smith, secretary of the board. “It’s always hanging out there. If we could outright sell a property, I think that would be preferable.”
Monahan shared Smith’s concern.
“If not, we’ll be beating this bush every year,” he said.
