The meeting was called to order by Treasurer Pat Fowler at 5:40PM. Also in attendance were Trustees Ray Massucco and Martha Rowley, as well as Library Director Celina Houlne and Staff member Mary Van Hartesveldt. Trustee Carol Blackwood was not present. There were no additions to the agenda. There were no members of the public in attendance for public comment. Minutes of the Feb 23, 2015 meeting were approved (Massucco, Rowley).


The current status of the FY16 budget was reviewed. The proposed FY17 budget was reviewed and discussed. Buildings and Grounds will be addressing the need for roof repairs of the flat roof at the next meeting of the full board next week. The consensus of the board was that the budget was well-founded with some adjustments and additional information required that will be available at the meeting of the full board on October 27. One suggestion was that the budget include a $2000 line item under the insurance line, in case there is a change in staff and we find that we have to make additional insurance payments instead of the staff utilizing the Insurance Incentive payment. Since the full board has already received the preliminary budget, Celina will prepare a separate sheet on this item.


The date for the next meeting was not set until after the October 27 meeting when the full board will review the budget, so no tasks were set. No Executive Session was needed.


The meeting adjourned at 7:30pm.


Pat Fowler, Treasurer
