Despite resignations (3) Hesperia still in limbo
Once again the Hesperia Village Council could not summon a quorum and once again the business meeting came to an end before it really began.
The resignation of Gerald Derks Jr. from the Hesperia Village Council received by the Village Clerk Monday came after months of no shows at council meetings and while recall advocates may applaud his departure it does little to alter the problem facing the bi-county town. Without a quorum the action necessary to replace the often absent and now resigned council member as well as filling the spots created by the resignations of Carol Kochans and Kristi DanBesten remains in limbo.
Meanwhile Council Member Mike Maynard the other half of the truant twosome has also not shown any inclination to attend the scheduled meetings. According to a story that got air time on WZZM-TV, Maynard stated he would not attend so long as the current Village President Mike Farber remains in office.
Much of the conflict appears to be over allowing a Medical Marijuana dispensary to operate in the village one of the heretofore unapproached agenda items for the council.
The next scheduled meeting will take place August 12th at 7:30pm.
