Approval of agenda
Bier moved adoption of the agenda, with elimination of items b through e under New Business, saying all would be covered in the Management Report.  Scudder seconded.  Passed with six yeas.  Durchslag abstained.
Management report
Click detailed problems discovered with termites attacking the back wall.  There may be other infestations, but this is all that was evaluated.  She has a proposal, including rodent control, from Terminex and is seeking others.  Based on that proposal, Durchslag moved to authorize expenditure of $1,200 for termite extermination and repair of the rear wall.  Scudder seconded.  Passed with six yeas.  Gonzales abstained.  Click is also seeking contractors to clean attic prior to installing new telephone system, another project for which she is seeking proposals.  She is looking for an electrician to install wiring for a security light in the front of the building.  Click said she was also seeking solutions for the wintertime pond on the handicapped parking pad.
Finance committee report
Scudder reviewed problems with producing timely financials for the Board.  She also expressed a desire to develop historical data, particularly on the disposition of the Fitch and Mapes-Bouck bequests.  Discussion turned to the need to make Durchslag a check-signer.  Apparently, the credit union requires the name of the Board vice president, a post vacated by Durchslag in becoming interim president.  Bier moved appointing Gonzales vice president.  Scudder seconded.  Passed unanimously.
Old business

Despite unease about the cost estimates, Click was directed to proceed and to keep the Board informed.
