Bylaws Changes Go to Member Vote; Governance Change Discussed
By 12th Moon,
Meeting on the third Tuesday in August, to avoid the conflict caused by meeting during our stores’ 10% on the 10th monthly sales day, we managed to get through most of a lengthy list of issues.
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.

Council Authorizes Low-Income Discount Program
By 12th Moon,
Previous to our regular Council meeting on July 13, our Treasurer, Art Godin, led a finance primer for our new Councilmembers. Welcoming Lauryn Beltz-Member to her first meeting since being elected in April, we went around the room introducing ourselves and Councilmembers present declared any possible conflicts of interest they may have.
Our Interim General Manager (IGM), Brandon Kane, made a request during his monthly IGM Report that Council remove the contingency requirement of a previously approved authorization to contract to have market and site survey work performed relevant to our purchasing the 700 West Buffalo Street location. After some questions and discussions we penned a proposal to remove the restriction and allow the research to begin. Previously we had asked the IGM to wait until the closing on the property was completed, but having met all of the contingencies regarding the purchase already, and with the expected delays of coordinating all of the necessary legal documentation, we decided that it would not be to our benefit to wait any longer, risking the chance that we would miss our window of opportunity with the research team’s schedule.

ouncil held our regular meeting on June 8 at Cornell Cooperative Extension, and while we took care of much business, we also scheduled a second Special Council Meeting for the 15th to continue some discussions and receive additional information on two timely and important topics.
During our first meeting we acknowledged the past service of our two departing Councilmembers, Shanna Fellman and Tycho Dan, and later in the meeting we accepted both of their applications and appointed Shanna to fill an open Member-at-Large seat on our Personnel Committee and Tycho on our Finance Committee.
