No comprehensive review of Trust Policy Statement

The Islands Trust Council decided this week not to proceed with a comprehensive review of the Trust Policy Statement. Instead, we will review the Policy Statement in a measured way, as part of our regular business, over the rest of this term of office, addressing topics that we feel are most important.

We also adopted a budget for 2012-13 with no property tax increase.
