11. New Business

Water from the Alpine Water Co. was out recently, affecting the ACC preschool along with other customers. It was suggested that we prepare an emergency kit with water and other supplies. The board has taken that input under advisement.

Community Services Consortium would like to partner with us for job training experience for someone. The board discussed possible ideas of alternatives at the Resale Shop and the preschool, and neither seemed obviously appropriate. We will need to know more from CSC about the program and about possible trainees before we could approve such a partnership.

Dorothy asked for clarification on last month’s board approval of a raise for Claudia.: how far back to apply the new wage. We reviewed the record and specified that it should be effective to September 1, 2017.

We received an application from an instructor to conduct yoga and qi-gong classes on Saturday mornings. The board approved, with stipulation that they don’t use incense or diffusion of essential oils. Joyce will respond for the board.
