Council Addresses 2011 Budget; Continues to Discuss 700 W. Buffalo
By 12th Moon,
Council held its regular monthly meeting October 12 with fewer than the normal number of agenda items, some of which led to lengthy discussions. The meeting started with an announcement by our Treasurer, long-time Councilmember Arthur Godin, that he will resign from Council at the end of this year so that he may devote more of his time to his family, his work and to his creative career as a talented musician. It goes without saying that we will sorely miss his experienced perspective and calm, even approach. Much thanks and best wishes to Art for his input over the years and to his future adventures; we’ll miss you, if we can’t convince you to change your mind.
Next a request was voiced by a member present for Council and staff to look toward ways to include more of a diverse population in our staff, our membership and our shoppers, with an acknowledgement that the newly-initiated “FLOWER” discount program was a positive step in that direction.

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).

By Dan Hoffman,
GreenStar members can vote during October of this year on whether or not to change a policy enacted by the membership in 2003 about what kind of meat the Co-op is permitted to sell.
For the first two decades of its existence, the Co-op did not sell meat of any kind. Then, in 1992, member referendums approved the sale of certain types of fish and poultry. The following year, a different referendum allowed the sale of pet food containing meat. A decade later, in 2003, members faced another pair of binding referendums. The first asked whether the Co-op should be permitted to sell meat oth...
