The Pleasant Point Tribal Council voted 3-2 to limit Governor Melvin Francis' business with Quoddy Bay LLC to scheduled public meetings, and to allow the exclusivity agreement, and attached land lease agreement-drafts to expire on May 14, 2005.
The resolution proposed that the tribal council:
Provide for the long term future of our families and our community, and re-evaluate agreements that have been made on behalf of the people of Sipayik and resolve to:
Permanently dissolve any exclusivity agreements with Quoddy Bay LLC; and to stop any related, planned, or current tribal land lease agreements.
Develop an economic community development strategy that makes best use of the considerable talent of all the people of Sipayik and the Passamaquoddy Tribe.
