The leave policy was reviewed. Alison made a motion to revise the sick time/vacation policy to a leave time policy as written effective 1/1/19. Judy Perry seconded. Motion passed.
The harassment policy was reviewed. Denise suggested eliminating the first three bullet points on section two of the draft of the Harassment and Discrimination Policy. The previous sentence would end with the word nature. We also will put the word “not” in bold in the sentence “is not required to do so” on the second page.
JP moved to accept the harassment and discrimination policy as amended on September 10th. DC seconded. Motion passed.
We discussed the Master Plan. In discussing the history we wanted to include something to clarify that the building is owned by the town and run by elected trustees. Additional current offerings of the libraries were added and goals suggested. Maria will revise the Master Plan and bring it to our next meeting.
Misty Ryder presented her ideas for a community center. We asked her to continue the dialog with us about the wants/needs of the community.
We discussed adding a changing table and that it may require removing handrails, leaving one of the two bathrooms handicap accessible.
Alison made a motion to have a changing table installed in one bathroom and convert both bathrooms to unisex bathrooms. Denise seconded and the motion passed.
The meeting was adjourned at 1:55pm.
