Financial Report: None
Executive Director’s Report: Bruce reviewed his report. Art & Wine made money this year, so they indicated that they will be back next year, they used both buildings and the front lawn. Nationwide was here with 360 ppl, their event went well. They used some off duty police for parking, so parking was not a problem. Bob is replacing some boards on the pool decking. Rentals seem to be slower than this time last year but we have new advertising put in place and it is just too soon to tell its impact.
Old Business: Carriage House renovation – Phil reviewed the additional information that he was asked to provide. Keith motioned that we approve the change orders based on Reed’s approval of financial evaluation. Receiving the approval, we will work through the payment process of who is responsible for what, Jurgen seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Carriage house grand opening- Candi suggested that we have a Grand Opening celebration with ribbon cutting for the new building. We discussed perhaps tying this in with the Village Council meeting and weenie roast that will be here August 6th. Bruce and Athena will talk to Molly Prasher and the Mayor about this possibility.
Major Maintenance Projects – identify greatest needs – Bruce reviewed his list of proposed projects. And the filling/resurfacing of the pool (Terrace Patio) seems to be one of the more urgent projects, because the Terrace, Back porch of the Mansion and other patio areas are used the most for rentals during the summer months.
Jurgen was finally able to meet with Bob about all the lines that run underground. One area of concern is the Sewer water from the barn and laundry house has been backing up causing those areas to flood. The Village Service Dept. will be doing a smoke-out of sewer and sanitary lines to try and find the root of the problem here soon.
New Business: Jurgen brought up the tree screen, he wants to try to let the grass grow up around the trees in an effort to create more of a screen and to protect the current trees from mower damage.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:03 p.m.
The next regular meeting is scheduled – July 23rd
