Alpine CC Board Minutes
6:00 pm Wednesday, January 20th, 2021 on Zoom
Present: Dorothy Brinckerhoff, Joyce Long, Roger Irvin, Rachelle Payne, Melissa Meyer, Kristen Norris, John Scott
1. Discuss & approve minutes of the previous meeting
2. Review board email votes since last meeting
3. Prioritize Agenda
4. Financial Report
Board reviewed and accepted the financial reports for December.
We received an indirect msg from CoEnergy about an outstanding balance. Dorothy tried to check our account via their web portal, but will need to call them directly.
5. Preschool Report
Board discussed an email regarding offer of preschool re-opening help from one of the student’s grandparents. Kristen briefed the board on the current version of the public health requirements for re-opening. Kristen’s sense is that the requirements (such as to keep toys separate and keep kids separate) are not conducive to the kind of preschool experience we want to offer. The Board agrees that we are not ready to support operating the preschool in compliance with the current Oregon Health Authority guidelines.
Joyce accepted an action item to draft and publish an announcement of our updated plan not to re-open the preschool before June.
7. 2020 fundraising appeal
ACC received donation responses totaling $1360 during December, plus more since the first of January. ACC received special donations from past residents of Alpine who now live out of the area. John volunteered to write special thank you notes to those donors.
8. Making Recycling Area Security DVR accessible
John reported that he relocated the DVR from the Water Company building around New Years. It is now in the wood cabinet in the former cry room at the center. The cameras and wiring remain in place.
9. New Business
Cindy Alvarez has requested to rent ACC this summer for a bicycle tour event on Monday August 23rd., 11-2. They expect to only use the restrooms and stay outside. Board discussed and clarified how to apply the old cleaning deposit and new adjacent-use cleaning fee policies to this request.
10. Proposed agenda for February
ACC Board 2/17 (rescheduled from normal 2/10 date)
