Minutes - Facilities and Grounds Committee

August 3, 2010
Call to Order/Attendance: Chairman Fred Raznick called the meeting to order at 4:05 PM. In attendance were members Jean Crawford, Nolan Zisman, and Mary Anne Kenny. David Lovro, Eddie Marshall, Janet Wise, John Calzada, and Jeanne Calzada were all excused absences. Also in attendance were Board liaison Pat Lavengood, GM Bill Donohue and Board member Todd Handy.

Minutes of July 6 Meeting: There being no quorum review of the minutes was deferred to the next meeting.

General Manager's Report: Bill reported the RFP for replacing the water system at the stables has gone out. When asked about the 5-year plan, Bill indicated he was “on board” with the F&G efforts and would not be submitting a separate one; he will participate in the F&G review and confirmation process.

Board Liaison Report: Pat was questioned about the rental house and amplified music policies. She reported that there was no discussion last month on either topic. She will make sure the BOD provides direction to F&G on the rental house so F&G can develop recommendations if it is not to continue as rental property. Since this summer is near an end, there is no sense of urgency at this time to discuss changing policy on amplified music.

Old Business:

F&G Log: Nolan led the group through a list of the capital project log items with the idea of reducing the number of High priority projects (for economic/budgetary reasons). Since there was not a quorum, Nolan will distribute a list of the capital projects with comments on how the group at today's meeting wishes the capital projects to be prioritized. At the next meeting a quorum vote will be needed on each item (retain or delete and assigning a priority to each retained item, along with a ranking of the projects for the 2011-2015 F&G 5-Year Plan.

Goat Update: Once the goat project has completed, an analysis will be made of the effectiveness of this effort, in order to determine if this type of activity should be continued in the future.

New Business:

Meeting times: Fred polled attendees regarding possibly changing meeting day or time to accommodate those who still work during the normal work day. Those in attendance favor retaining the existing meeting schedule.

Eddie's note of Aug. 1 was reviewed. All the items in his note are currently on the Log. Relevant Log items will be updated with his comments, as appropriate.

Date of next meeting: Due to availability conflicts in Sept. prior to the BOD Sept. meetings, the next F&G meeting will be on Aug. 24, 2010, at 4PM. Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 5:50 PM.
