11-5-12thMoon-72dpiCouncil held its June meeting in The Space @ GreenStar on June 14. We said goodbye and thank you to outgoing Council members Lauryn Beltz-Member and Neil Oolie as we welcomed the last three of our newly-elected Council members, Emma Silverman, Melissa Blake and Chris Negronida, with Tara Gross having been seated at our May meeting.

Brandon Kane, Interim General Manager (IGM), reported on the improvements made to the Produce and Bulk bagging area, installation of the new air conditioning unit on the roof of the West-End store, and progress toward installing an energy-efficient "in-line" hot water heater for the Deli. We were reminded that GreenStar will be showing the documentary "Bag It" at The Space during the summer months. Along with a favorable financial report for both locations, Brandon reported on the finances relating to our annex building at 700 West Buffalo St., showing that we are currently saving well over $850 a month compared to before the purchase, and we are realizing many uses previously unavailable to us.
