Council President

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.

 Selects CCMA Attendees

By 12th Moon,
Council President

Eric12Moon(72dpi)On Tuesday, April 12, Council conducted its monthly meeting at The Space @ GreenStar with nine of our thirteen members present. We took a few minutes to honor the passing of a local, and regional, food hero, Gary Redmond. Our thoughts and good wishes go out to his family and the whole Regional Access crew; we will miss his warmth, humor and concern for our local food systems. Thank you, Gary, for being you.

Council Encourages Members to Vote; Proposes Letter Against Hydrofracking

By 12th Moon,
Council President

Eric12Moon(72dpi)On March 8, we held our first Council meeting in The Space @ GreenStar. "The Space" is the name given to the north end of our building at 700 West Buffalo Street, which has already been used for some musical events, our kids' Halloween party and a photography exhibit, and will be the location of our Annual Spring Membership Meeting this year on April 22, and our first case lot sales, to begin Saturday, April 2.

We moved quickly through most agenda items with time to discuss topics that we have been working on for some time. The monthly report from Interim General Manager (IGM) Brandon Kane showed a respectable growth in sales compared to last year. Brandon informed us of the case lot sales and plans to install a reusable bag drop-off and pick-up area in the entrance to the West-End store. Included in the report was an extensive review of the effects of our newly established FLOWER discount program, which has been a great success. Our Finance Committee approved the IGM's 4th Quarter and Year-End 2010 Financial Report and concluded it was complete and on time.
