Meeting Minutes

Bradley started the meeting at 19:37 with a review of the action items.

Jeff gave the treasurer's report at 19:39 (see above). We're down a little bit due to COVID, but our average utilities are down a little as well. We have several members (36) that are at least 3 months behind on donations and we're looking at some kind of mitigation given the circumstances.

Brian gave the facilities report at 19:47. We've been looking at adding timers to the equipment that is often left running. We're also looking at a forced air electric heater on a timer to make the space more usable. There is some laser maintenance that will occur on Sunday. The office toilet is currently out of order and will also be fixed on Sunday. We're working on repairing rodent damage and mitigating the rodent issue as well. This was a result of a reorganization that left food exposed. Thomas is looking to do a rework of the wood cart and tools.

We have been doing public nights on Tuesdays which are appropriately distanced and masked.

The next meeting will occur on January 14th.
