Council Addresses Governance; Discusses Use of New Property
By 12th Moon,
At our regular monthly meeting on September 14, Council, after working through our agenda and hearing from a special guest, adjourned ten minutes early. Really, that’s big news.
The Interim General Manager’s (IGM) monthly report was our first item on the agenda. We heard from IGM Brandon Kane about plans to make improvements at both stores, clean up the property we now own at 700 West Buffalo Street, initiate improvements to our recycling and composting, as well as supporting a local television show entitled “Get Foodie” that will air on PEGASYS local access and online. Look for a link on this GreenStar web site. We also learned that GreenStar welcomed 230 new members last month. Hello, welcome, and we hope to see you all at our Fall Membership Meeting to be held at the Women’s Community Building on West Seneca Street, from 6 to 8:30 pm on Oct. 21 (see the agenda below).

Our Interim General Manager, Brandon Kane, and Finance Manager, Asha Sanaker, presented the 2nd Quarter Financial Report for referral to our Finance Committee for review. It was a relief to see that our staff has done such a great job adjusting to the issues faced during the 1st Quarter of this year, while also having to work around a heat wave that pushed many of our cooling systems to the brink.
