Below is the Accountability Plan that was sent to the tribal council to put on the agenda for the October General Council Meeting, but they refused to put it on the agenda. It looks like our elected officials don’t want to be held accountable.
PBPN Elected Official Accountability Program
Outline of the Program is:
I. Institute a process that the Secretary's office will have an on-going calendar listing of all Tribal Council and Gaming commission daily meetings and appointments for Tribal member review. Discretion to be used when listing names of Tribal members coming in meetings for special requests.
2. Institute a process for having each elected official do a quarterly report for distribution at each General Council meeting consisting of an actual calendar outlining their appointments and an activities report hightlighting their accomplishments
3. Institute a line item report for quarterly distribution at each General Council meeting detailing the budget usage and justification for usage by each elected official.
4. Have each elected official provide Tribal members quarterly and distributed at each General Council meeting a forecast of their next quarter's activities for General Council review.
The on-going calendar should be in a format that all tribal members can obtain from the Secretary's office - any day of the month to oversee where the elected official is spending their time. The quarterly calendars/accomplishment/budget usage and justification/and next quarterly forecast reports should also be in electronic format for distribution to any tribal member who makes a request.
Should this 'PBPN Elected Official Accountability Program' be brought to the general council for a vote?
