Board Meeting Minutes – September 2021

Call to Order: 7:00pm

Members Present: Marilyn Ruh, Elaine Putvin, Jennifer Edmonds, Shelby DeNike, Bill McConnell, Cindee Picklo

Absent: Tom Stanko, Sharon Grabski, James Keathley

Several board members had conflicts and Sharon let the board know that she would no longer be able to do Thursday meetings. Discussed changing the meetings to the 3rd Monday of every month. Marilyn will reach out to the Board members who are absent to confirm that will work for them as well.

Minutes: Motion to approve minutes Bill moved, Shelby seconded; approved unanimously.

Budget and Dues: Very little activity the past month. Mostly typical expenses. Noted that the water bill was much lower than the previous year. Discussed moving away from Square Space for credit card payment processing. Shelby will work over the next few weeks to get it switched over to the new platform. Sharon was not in attendance but the board discussed the list she had provided of unpaid dues prior to the meeting.

Discussed agenda items for the November Annual meeting: Budget presentation, major activity reports (bike parade, ice cream social, playground, etc.)

Bill Moved, Marilyn Seconded having the annual meeting virtually. Tentatively it will be held on November 15 after Marilyn confirms that the date works for the remaining members of the board.

Discussed the bonfire and whether it was a good idea to do it given the short time frame and concerns for COVID. Discussed possibly having a food truck come to the neighborhood as an alternative event. Tentative date is October 23 as there is no home MSU game. Shelby is going to reach out to a few food trucks to check availability. Marilyn will check with the homeowners on the cul-de-sac at the end of Manitou to see if they would be willing to have the food trucks park there. Once details are confirmed Shelby will send a newsletter out about the food truck and the annual meeting details as well.

Meeting adjourned at 8:00pm.

Next meeting will be Monday, October 18 @ 6:30pm via Zoom.
