At the VTC meeting of July 1, 2010 at the United Methodist Church Auditorium, the following took place:

Those elected will hold office in the following year. If this modification of the Rules goes into effect prior to the November meeting, the Town Council shall elect two co-chairs/faciliators and a secretary to hold office until the following year.

3. Co-sponsor the meeting on Venice Cityhood at the old Town Hall, July 25. Approved.
4. Endorse a memorial at Venice & Lincoln to the Japanese who were sent to concentration camps from there during WW2. Also send a letter. Approved.
