CORRECTION: The original article stated that members wishing to speak at the annual meeting needed to give written notice three days in advance. This is not accurate, according to Patricia Stehling, Member Services administrative assistant. “Members can speak or ask questions at any district meeting, there is no notice written or otherwise required,” she said. Also, the district meeting is open to the public; however, only members can vote and be eligible for the $10 electric bill credit or door prizes. DailyTrib.com regrets the errors.
