Five of the seven board of directors of the Eagle Point Museum met in a special meeting Sept. 3 to open the ballots and tally the results of an election to determine the future of the museum and the Wood House.
There were two questions on the ballot mailed to members:
- Shall the Board of Directors of the Eagle Point Historical Society be instructed to convey assets to the Wood House Preservation Group and to the City of Eagle Point? A proper inventory has been taken of all assets.
- Shall the Board of Directors be instructed to dissolve the non-profit status 501c3 of the Eagle Point Historical Society?
There were 147 ballots mailed. The vote for the conveyance was 64 yes and 3 no and to dissolve the non-profit status of the historical society, the vote was 63 yes and 4 no.
The inventory list will be sent to the historical society’s attorney and he will prepare the necessary legal documents. They may be available at the next regular historical society board meeting, which is Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. The board talked about a final deadline for a complete transfer in November although there was no formal action.
Board members Helen Wolgamott and Maggie Webster were not present.
