Financial Report: Reed reviewed the Financial Report for September, 2016. Larry moved to accept the financial report, Keith seconded. Motion carried.
Executive Director’s Report: Bruce reviewed his report for the month: He stated that Polo will be back next year. But the Rendville Art Show will not be here this year due to the retirement of the director of that show, they do hope to return in 2017. Jenn reports that the Art school classes are doing well. Bruce also said that we have had some different things happening like photo shoots and music videos and that weddings are winding down, but sports are going strong.
Old Business: We welcomed Phil Claggett of NorthPoint Architects to review his proposal for placement of a possible elevator to the second and third floor of the Mansion. Discussion followed. One idea was for an outside tower in the vicinity of the current emergency stairs on the northwest side. The tower would actually be taller than the Mansion to accommodate mechanics and entrance to both second and third floor. The board rejected this idea. Then discussed a possibility of installing an elevator in the Foyer area closing off current access to bathroom hall from Foyer. All bathroom traffic would be redirected through the “dining” room. This option would allow for a lobby area to serve not only first floor but second and third floor. This option would also close off a second floor balcony. Phil will be doing a redesign to show how this might work and look and will present this at the November meeting.
New Business: Set Nov/Dec meeting- we will have our next board meeting on November 21st and the December board meeting will be December 8th this year instead of combining Nov/Dec.
Other: In other news, Candi reported that she had requested a meeting with Mayor Hartfield to discuss the possibility of adding a council member to the Bryn Du Board. At that meeting, also attended by Steve Pyles, Mayor Hartfield mentioned the GRD having some interest in Bryn Du but provided no details. Finally, she said that the Board’s renewal contract has been returned to the Village Manager for approval and signature.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:35 p.m.
The next regular meeting is scheduled for November 21st, 2016
