Ben Lomond Town Meeting – Park Hall Trust Vote

In 1923 the Park Hall Trust was formed – on December 10th 2013 we will hold an election. If you live in Ben Lomond, join us.

“The above described property is conveyed to the parties of the second part to be held in trust for the citizens of Ben Lomond, California, and is to be used for the benefit of the community of Ben Lomond, California.”

The Park Hall Trustees currently are: Ann Scott, Richard Mills, Cathy Smith, Karen Scarborough, and Lyle Troxell. Karen Scarborough is resigning. And the Trust clearly states….

“The Said Trustees above named, and their successors, receive and accept this conveyance with the understanding that the said above described property shall be used for the best interests and benefit of the community of Ben Lomond, and with the further covenant upon their part that in the matter of the use or the sale, or other disposition of said property, they will be controlled by a majority vote of the citizens of said Ben Lomond, present and voting at a town meeting duly called by posting notices in three prominent places in said Town, ten days before the holding of any such meeting. At any such meeting said citizens of Ben Lomond may, by a majority vote, name a successor to any Trustee who may have died or resigned, and may also authorize, direct and compel the sale or other disposition of said property, or any part thereof. By “citizens of Ben Lomond” is meant any and all persons residing or owning property within a radius of 1-1/2 miles of the herein above described property.”

On December 10th at 6:30pm we will gather at Park Hall in Ben Lomond (right next to the market) and vote a new Trustee to help run and take care of the Park Hall Community Center. Do you know of a good candidate? Do you have some input? Please participate.

Your feedback is welcomed,

-Lyle Troxell
