A former director has raised concerns about graft within the Lyndon Outing Club
LYNDON — A former director has raised concerns about graft within the Lyndon Outing Club. In a letter to the Select Board and Village Trustees, Mark Kwiecienski warned that members of the Board of Directors could use LOC money to personally enrich themselves under recent bylaw changes. The amended bylaws include a new provision that states, “No more than 49 percent of the individuals serving on the board may be financially interested persons.” Kwiecienski feared the provision could funnel dollars away from Outing Club operations — including a proposed $1.1 million snowmaking project — and into directors’ pockets. LOC President Wendy Beattie responded that Kwiecienski’s accusations were baseless.
