  1. 2012 Trust Mgmt Grant Implementation

John discussed a possible basic design for the Informational kiosk. The board was receptive to the idea.

  1. Pothole repair on Webster Avenue

Dorothy has gotten Webster Avenue on the Benton County list to re-grade when the crew is next in the area. Quoted cost $100. Neighbors have also been solicited by the county for resident-funded dust control application. We agreed to pay for dust control on our section of Webster Avenue.

  1. Budget committee for 2015-16

John led a discussion about grants and notable expenses to anticipate for next year. Board anticipates no significant incomes or expenses for next year. We expect in the next month or so to get the next round of materials for the building remodel, and that may suggest one or more areas where we could do incremental improvements that would not be overtaken by the remodel.

  1. So. Benton Community Advisory Group (SBAG) for M. Hull bequest

Roger reported that the group is soliciting a grant application from Art in the Park, and SBCE is submitting one.

  1. New Business

Dena reported from the Alpine Water Company board that the AWC plans to install chain link gates to block off the narrow walkway space between the new recycling center fence and the water company building. The choice of chain link is primarily for visibility, and to keep people from dumping materials in that space. They decided to raise the rates, which will affect ACC.

Rachelle would like her high school-age daughter to volunteer in the preschool next year. The Board accepted the offer, contingent on Charlene’s judgment and coordination.

The Board reviewed the policy for promoting community events and commercial events on the email list.
