Approval of Minutes: Minutes of June 20, 2016 were reviewed. Mickey moved and Meg seconded to approve the minutes as corrected. The motion carried.
Treasurer's Report: No report.
Old Business: Arts Forum discussion: Kyle reported that Andy Wildman, chair of the Organization Committee, is researching several sites for visits, includingUpper Arlington and Bexley. The group agreed that Worthington and Dublin are also good possibilities. It was suggested that a member from each of the committees be in attendance at the visits. To ensure consistency, the group brainstormed ideas about questions to ask at the visits:
- What types of programs are included?
- How are they organized and funded (including grants,) and who do they report to?
- What is the staffing situation? Paid or volunteer?
- What facilities do they have?
- Who is their audience?
- How do they respond to the community’s needs, and how are those needs assessed?
- Are scholarships given?
- What are their biggest challenges?
Kyle will follow up with Andy.
The issue of Tom’s replacement on the commission is on the agenda for the next Village Council meeting.
Jurgen received a thank you from Kiwanis for our support of their grant.
Regarding Neal’s idea about awarding a prize for an art student, Jurgen has mentioned it to Jeff Brown, Superintendent of the School District.
