Member Grants 2015

  • When will the New Office Window be installed? Answer: Saturday, Oct 17
  • Should we start new grant votes for unused "Blog/Wiki move" and leftover "Floor in arts area"?
    • Answer: The unused "Floor in arts area" is specifically supposed to rolled into the Facilities fund as per the grant written for it. The current host is only hosting us out of the goodness of his heart and because two of our members work there, normally that company charges far higher than normal prices than industry standard for hosting. That said, we could decide that the original grant has been obsoleted due to our current situation, and re-propose grants for it.
