11-5-12thMoon-72dpiCouncil held our monthly meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 11 in The Space @ GreenStar with nine of our fifteen members in attendance; evidently we are not immune to the flu and colds of the season.

 

During announcements we heard of the success of the first of a two-evening event organized by our affiliate GreenStar Community Projects. The events, entitled "Feeding Our Future: Building Community for Food Equity & Sustainability," are networking events designed to bring together as many as seventy-five people from different local organizations concerned with food equity issues. The second evening was held Thursday, Dec. 13. It is hoped these events will lead to more communication between different organizations in Tompkins County.

Our first item of business was the monthly report from our General Manager (GM) Brandon Kane. Brandon reported that the stores did well during the Thanksgiving crunch, even though we sold out of turkeys (for the first time ever) and were in the middle of the fall voting period. He also reported that the construction of a second walk-in refrigeration unit had begun at the West-End store and that research work has started for a feasibility study required by Council prior to getting the go-ahead for construction of a new central kitchen and bakery in our building at 700 West Buffalo Street.

Council President

11-5-12thMoon-72dpiCouncil held our regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 13 in The Space @ GreenStar. During announcements we were informed that our affiliate GreenStar Community Projects has organized a networking event to bring together as many as seventy-five people from local organizations concerned with food equity issues. The event, entitled "Feeding Our Future: Building Community for Food Equity & Sustainability," will take place over two evenings, Nov. 29 and Dec. 13, and is designed to get all of these folks together at the same table, as the four-hour program each evening will include food sharing as well as information and networking.

 

Brandon Kane, our General Manager (GM), presented his monthly report next, and told us that both stores are doing very well; we survived another very busy tenth of the month; and we are preparing for the holiday season. We also learned that the installation of a new additional walk-in cooler for the West-End store may well have to wait until after Thanksgiving because of shipping delays. The annual staff satisfaction survey will be going out to all staff soon and there will be both a managers and assistant managers meeting and an all-staff meeting in the second half of November.

Brandon next submitted the Third Quarter Financial B.1 Report in the new Policy Governance (PG) format that we have been transitioning into. The report was referred to our Finance Committee for review and report back next month. The PG format of reports, called Monitoring Reports, starts with policies that Council has approved, then the GM writes his interpretations of the policy and what data he will use to report, and presents this to Council for approval. This system should provide Council with the data it needs in a consistent way that makes it easier to compare years of data. As we are still in this process of transitioning, our next agenda item was to vote on a set of the GM's interpretations for another policy.

Voting has ended. The Patronage Dividend measure failed to pass. The Collegetown Crossing store measure passed.

 
12-12 Voting_Results_CSS_WebCouncil met Tuesday, Oct. 9 in The Space @ GreenStar, and set a record (at least a record for recent times) by adjourning at 8:35 rather than our usual 9:30 p.m. We all appreciated the early ending and that we had taken care of much business during the meeting.

During announcements we appreciated our outgoing Board Administrator Shayna Grajo for all she has done with us and we welcomed Brad Dingman as our new Board Administrator.

General Manager (GM) Brandon Kane presented the monthly GM's Report as our first item, showing that the stores are both doing well and staying quite busy. All departments are working with the Finance Department to create the 2013 budget in a new format that will separate departmental expenditures for each store. This will help prepare staff for evaluating a new satellite store in the future. The 2013 stores budget will be presented to Council at our meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 13 and is likely to include costs associated with building a central kitchen and bakery in our warehouse building at 700 West Buffalo Street.
