Bois Forte Reservation Tribal Council enacted Resolution #66-2019, at a regular Tribal Council meeting on April 3, 2019.
The RTC has determined that consultation with and input from Band members must be a priority when the Council is considering proposals to pursue business relationships that have the potential to make a material impact on the Band's resources and the live of members; and the RTC finds that Band member input in the decision-making process must include a public hearing on the business proposal; and that the RTC will conduct a public hearing for Band members as a condition that must be met prior to any final or binding decision on a business proposal and that the opportunity for Band member input must include (1) a notice of the proposal on the Band's website, (2) publication in the Bois Forte News, (3) public posting on the Reservation, all of which must occur at least 30 days prior to the public hearing, and (4) an opportunity for Band members to submit written comments on the business proposal following the public hearing; and that this resolution shall be effective April 3, 2019, and shall not be construed as a repeal or modification of any existing Band Ordinance requiring public comment or hearing.
