The bylaws of the Ortley Beach Voters and Taxpayers Assn., as approved by a vote of the membership at the membership meeting held on April 17th, 2021 can be found at the link HERE
The OBVTA adopted the updated organizational by-laws in April utilizing the procedures outlined in the existing bylaws for doing so. These updated bylaws were voted on and approved by the OBVTA board and by the membership present at the OBVTA membership meeting on April 17th 2021.
One member of OBVTA, Mel Persi, has objected to the process and the adoption of the new bylaws despite the OBVTA board following all correct procedures for doing so. Mel made a motion to modify the process at the April 17th meeting and his motion received a second, however it did not achieve a majority vote of the membership (in fact it received no votes except for Mel and the 2nd nominee). Subsequently Mel Persi communicated with the OBVTA board and the board provided a response to his communications. For the purposes of full disclosure, the contents of all of those communications can be found HERE
