B. Training: The Director presented Security Awareness Training for the Board. Members read and discussed the points presented and acknowledged receiving the training with their signatures.
C. Generator: Awaiting feed back from the Board of Supervisors regarding obtaining a generator. Also, was told by Director of Public Services, Lars Ewing, to not solicit bids for a generator system. There was talk about the Center becoming a Cooling Station during blackouts. More information is necessary. Some discussion on holding a “Cause” fundraiser to raise funds for a generator ensured. All ideas for a generator are tabled at this time.
X. Unfinished Business:
A. Our storage shed will be painted soon.
B. Generator (ongoing)
XI. New Business:
A. It was suggested that the order of our agenda be revamped. It appears it would be best if we schedule “Public Comments” earlier in the meeting, before any confidential information is discussed. Perhaps schedule public comments to occur after correspondence and before committee reports. In addition, all public comments should be restricted to 2 minutes. All Board Members agreed.
B. It was suggested that a new item be added to the agenda: “Closed Session”. This could occur (when necessary) after the Director’s Report.
XII. Adjournment: Nance Simon moved, and Bob Olsen seconded the motion to adjourn. Meeting adjourned at 2:15.35.
