The Secretary’s report for the Sept. 12, 2017 was read and accepted. John Motioned, Denise seconded.
The Treasurer’s report was reviewed and accepted. John motioned, Jane seconded. Judy stated that it appeared no new Wells Fargo monies would need to be transferred until after the first of the year.
The Library Director’s report was presented by Maria. John motioned/ Jane seconded. Maria reminded us of the dates to present the budget to both the Selectmen and the Budget Committee. Sean McManus is almost done making the end panels. Tim Heckman provided a quote of $20,425 to remove the old carpet and install nylon carpet tiles. The trustees had questions which were not addressed in the quote. We also suggested we get additional quotes and be more specific in what we are looking for so everyone is on the same page. Maria listed the upcoming programs of speakers and the children’s Christmas party. Maria reminded us that both John and Jane’s terms are up in March, 2018. There is also a question whether Dottie will be able to continue until her term expires in 2020. The Friends want permission to raffle off a basket at Christmastime. The trustees motioned to “Give the Friends permission to conduct a raffle at Christmastime once they have received the required permit from the Selectmen”.
The 2018 Budget was reviewed. The Salary Budget cannot be completed until the Health Insurance and Salary increases have been established. Maria prepared schedules showing salary increases of 1.5% and 3% for the 53 week period as well as insurance figures for our review. Hopefully this information will be available by our next meeting so we can finalize the budget.
We also discussed the memorial plaque for Joan O’Hara. It was decided to get 2 plaques, one for Joan and the other for Frank Lord. Denise will work with Maria on the plaques.
The meeting was adjourned at 1:30.
Jane ter Kuile, Secretary
