Old Business (MMA)
M-NCPPC letter update: Letter sent. No update. DJ to continue reaching out periodically. Dennis
to introduce DJ to former member who works in that dept.
Water leak: Bill may be up to $1,600 extra. Those present decided not to claim it to allow for a
future, more financially burdensome claim.
Bates Sanitation update – Sigh. DJ still trying to get written confirmation that the alleged debt has
been written off.
Upcoming workdays: Chris Goff to lead tomorrow’s workday.
Meeting with Bruce from Lighthouse: Bruce explained the billing/hours situation. He distributed
a handout that, read in conjunction with our contract and the billable-hours spreadsheets
previously distributed, outlines how the billing system works. Bruce asked if the board would
consider paying swim lesson fees and overage hours on a more regular basis. Those present
intimated that it was due to timely billing. The board agreed to set up a list of extra tasks that it
would be reasonable to ask guards to do during downtime.
Chris Gowen resigned from the board due to a move out of town.
Committee Recruitment Proposal: Chris Goff presented the outline below that is aimed to expand
the number of people who take responsibility for the work advancing the pool’s goals.
A member asked for special consideration for a parking space due to the fact that every time she
came there were no handicapped spaces. To be discussed later.
Next Meeting: November 18 @ 4:00pm.
