Call to Order:

The meeting was called to order at 12:00 p.m. by Jodi Johnson.  The September minutes were reviewed.  Jodi Johnson called for a motion to accept the minutes.  Dudley Fetzer moved; David Burton seconded.  The minutes were approved.

Old Business:

Fee Waiver:  Jane explained fee waivers for not-for-profits.  Organizations must be not-for-profit, provide a budget sheet, and submit an application for fee waiver.  The board must approve all applications.

New Business:

Standing Committee Assignments:
Standing Committee Assignment: Pam Merchanthouse will join the marketing committee.

Treasurer's Report:
Budget Review:  Jane reviewed the proposed annual budget.  The proposed budget totals $31,400.00.  Estimated income totals $29,580.00.  Additional members need to be recruited to make up the difference.  Jane reviewed expenses and noted that there may be some areas that could be decreased to help offset the deficit. 
Budget Discussion:  It was noted that the advertising budget would be a poor choice to reduce.  It was suggested that we push to increase business members instead.  It was also suggested that the marketing committee target key business owners in Wayne County and personally invite them to join WayNet.  Jane will ask Gary Arndt about convening the Marketing Committee to work on recruiting new business members.
Jane was asked to leave the room while the board discussed a possible increase in her salary.  Four options were explored; 1% increase ($244.51), 2% increase ($489.03), 3% increase ($733.54), and no increase.  It was suggested that the required number of business memberships be raised to six to cover the cost of a 3% raise.  Valerie Biggs moved that the budget be changed to reflect a 3% increase in Jane’s salary.  Dudley Fetzer seconded the motion.  The motion was carried unanimously.  Tim Love moved to accept the amended budget.  Jenie Lahmann seconded; motion carried unanimously.

Terms of Service/Acceptable Use and Google Ad Sense: Tim Love moved that discussion about Terms of Service/Acceptable Use and Google Ad Sense be tabled until the next meeting. The motion was seconded by Dudley Fetzer. Motion carried unanimously.

Google Ad sense on Turtle Page: Jane proposed we think about incorporating Google ad sense to the Turtle page. Jenie asked Jane to put together some information for the board to be discussed at the next meeting.

The complete Executive Director’s report is available on WayNet.


David Burton moved the meeting be adjourned. Jodi Johnson seconded; motion carried.

Meeting adjourned at 1:21p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Valerie Biggs
