Goodale Gates Elements
The lights have been installed and are operational. They look great. Quality Masonry will return to fix the darkened grout.
The fountain joints that were exposed due to sandblasting the graffiti have been siliconed The fountain was turned on Sept. 14. As for the remains of the graffiti, CR&PD will most likely wait until next spring to see if anything is still visible before the crew makes any further removal effort.
Concrete sidewalk replacements and new bench pads have been completed. There is one bench remaining for future placement in the park.
Andy is submitting the FGP re-registration with the Secretary of State. For the month of September, total revenues and accounts receivable were $1,007.37. Expenses were $1,794.67. Total net assets as of 10/03/12 were: $23,280.70.
Volunteer Coordinator Update:
In Julie’s absence, Eric and Beth agreed to convene the work day this coming Saturday, Oct. 6, from 9 until noon.
Andy expressed concern that total expenses for the Volunteer Coordinator would exceed $4,000 for the current year.
Motion: (Klein/Vogt) To increase authorization for Volunteer Coordinator payment to $5,000 for calendar year 2012.
Missy introduced Marc Flinn who has been investigating the FGP website and proposed that the Board change over from the present drupal system to that of word press. The latter is more user friendly. Jason requested that Missy demonstrate the Museum’s web site at the November Board meeting as an example of a word press system.
