Approval of August minutes
Doyka noted that the PSRC had been listed incorrectly as, ‚ÄúCommittee;‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúCouncil‚ÄĚ is correct. Dillon moved approval, with the change. Bier seconded. Passed unanimously.
Approval of agenda
Durchslag moved approval. Dillon seconded. Passed unanimously.
Board Grievance Policy, Addition to 5.1.1:
The Board may initiate a grievance and seek mediation at its own determination. The President shall represent the Board and Redwood Community Radio in any mediation or other, related proceedings.
Bier moved that the policy change be sent to the Policy Committee for further consideration. Murphy seconded. Bier reported that Bob Froelich had met with Dillon, Murphy, Todd and himself, asserting, among other things, that the proposed policy would turn the existing problem-solving process on its head. If so, this would be an unintended result. Passed unanimously.
Todd spoke of the impending resignation of Beth Comes-Westkamper after 21 years on the KMUD staff. She speculated aloud about possible staff realignment, saying that no decisions had been made yet.
Discussion and questions for management
Bier noted that as of July 16 the P&L showed a total for fundraising events of $15,778.23. He asked whether, in view the investments of money and volunteer time, the effort was worth it. This set off an extended discussion of event fundraising. Todd pointed out that the visibility gained for the station does not show on the balance sheet, but is very important. Durchslag asked what would replace it. It was pointed out that the bulk of event fundraising, including Reggae on the River, has not landed on the balance sheets yet.

Scudder being absent, there was no report.
