Motion: (Krobot/Kentner) to approve the minutes of the January 12, 2013 Board Retreat.
Columbus Art Walk
Pat urged Board members to review the various Columbus Art Walk postings around Goodale Park and in the neighborhood for accuracy. Advise Pat if there are discrepancies.
Andy reported total revenues and accounts receivable for the month of January of $1,142.31. Total net assets as of 02/06/13: $38,571.24.
Motion (Vogt/Krobot) – To pay Westminster/Thurber $125 for set up and food for the January Board retreat. Motion approved.
Rec. & Parks:
Goodale Park Parking
Rick reported that the new signs prohibiting overnight parking have been installed based on the city ordinance that restricts park “open” hours from 7 am until 11 pm for all city parks. He has not been able to determine how or why the 2 hour parking limit signs have been removed. However, new 3 hour parking limit signs have been ordered and will be installed in the near future. The issue really seems to be the lack of parking restrictions and/or enforcement of such on Dennison Ave. Perhaps more restrictive permit parking should be sought for Dennison Ave.
Next Work Day: Saturday, February 23 @ 9am
Motion: (Frantz/Kentner) to approve an Operations Budget of $2,550 (to cover $750 for annual plants, $1,500 for watering and $300 for tools) for 2013. Motion carried.
Event s and Outreach:
Presented a proposal to serve as a liaison with electrician Ferd Kirby, to be trained in the operation of the fountain, to be responsible for replacing burned out lights (underwater and on top), and to clean and wax the elephants twice a year.
Motion: (Sells/Vogt) To establish a $1,000 fountain maintenance budget for 2013 and to contract with Eric Rausch to provide the services as outlined above. Motion carried.
Motion: (Sells/Vogt) To establish a Maintenance Endowment for park monuments, including the fountain, with an initial allocation of $10,000 comprised of $7,000 preserved from the Columbus Art Memorial Contract and $3,000 from the 2012 Gala. The intent is that the Maintenance Endowment will grow over time and that this allocation is to serve as the seed to that endowment. Motion carried.
Motion: (Kentner/Sells) To approve the expenditure of $1,300 from unrestricted funds for the fabrication and installation of the fountain donor plaque to be installed in tandem with the fountain dedication plaque. Motion carried.
