Director's Report

Director's Report indicated that there was a calendar glitch, but it was fixed within 24 hrs. Mayoral election campaign sent $400 check for photos. Six photo sales on books for a woman doing a book on Reid Church.


Budget Review indicated that salary is our largest organizational expense. Board discussed options. Jenie proposed: reduction in hours to halftime for 3 months. Jane wanted clarification as to whether benefits would be offered in this option. Jane's first choice at this point is halftime (12 hours/week) on a temporary basis, but only if it includes benefit package. If benefits are not included, then furlough would be preferred. Dakota motioned to give Executive Committee the power to decide if needed, Rob seconded. Motion was approved.


With no further business to discuss, Jenie Lehmann asked for the meeting to be adjourned. 12:50 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
