The minutes of the April 4, 2012 Board meeting were approved.
Jason reviewed the email vote of the Board to approve the purchase of pond dye in an effort to ascertain the location of the leak. There were nine affirmative votes. The first application of dye occurred this evening.
Rec. & Parks:
Goodale Gates ElementsRick Miller reported the new light fixtures are still in process with design details being further spelled out in drawings. There is no time line yet for completion.MulchTwo large piles have been dumped at the south end of the Dennison parking lot. Rick subsequently determined that it is for use on the playground.
Pond StatusThe well has been shut off and despite nearly 3” of rain in the last four days, the pond level has continued to drop slowly. As a result of shims that were used to level the fountain structure on top of the sona tubes, there are gaps at the top of the sona tubes that could be allowing the leak. (Following the board meeting, Rick, Jason and Stan inspected the status of the dye and found that a significant amount of the dye had collected around the base of the fountain.) Another application of dye will occur next week.
Perimeter sidewalks will be repaired with replacement cement. There is no news yet on a new release (and call for proposals) for UIRF funds.
Volunteer Coordinator Update
There were 117 volunteers who participated in the Earth Day event in Goodale Park on April 14 – a new record! The next work day is May 12, Planting Day. If possible, Board members were urged to come early (8 to 8:30) to help lay out plants on the beds. Greg Krobot proposed (and the Board concurred) that the planting of the perennials be postponed from 5/12 to June 9 as it would be extremely difficult to accommodate both the annuals and the perennials on 5/12. There was also discussion about eliminating the June 2 work day but Rick Frantz and the Operations Committee will review this and decide a course of action. FGP volunteers are needed to work at ComFest to offset FGP booth cost.
Motion (by Matt W. and Jason K.): To reimburse Julie $28.00 for the cost of promotion cards and to purchase additional cards up to $100. Motion approved.
Andy reported total revenues and accounts receivable for the month of April of $5,725.95. Total net assets as of 05/02//12: $51,302.66.
