Council Discusses Special Meetings, Elections, Interim GM Plan

By 12th Moon, 

Council President

Special Membership Meetings, upcoming Council elections and proposed changes to our Code of Conduct for Councilmembers were among the topics discussed at Council’s Jan. 12 meeting.

Council decided to hold a Special Membership Meeting sometime in March to further discuss our members’ thoughts regarding future expansion goals. A decision had been made at our December meeting to hold a Special Membership Meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 16 to discuss different possible expansion directions that GreenStar could pursue. That meeting date has been rescheduled for mid-March. Many concepts of GreenStar’s future have been visualized over the years, and a successful second store, Oasis, has been realized, but recent changes in the general state of the economy are presenting new directions for the Co-op to consider. We are still formulating discussion topics, both specific and general, to help us shape the path the Co-op will take toward manifesting our shared goals and values. Please join your fellow members and participate in the discussions that will help create our plans for the future of GreenStar.

Council Authorizes Special Meeting; Addresses Code of Conduct

By 12th Moon, 

Council President

Council held its December meeting at the Human Services Building on Dec. 15. We heard from Bini Reilly, our General Manager (GM), that our stores are continuing to do very well due to the efforts of our staff and management, that improvements continue to be made to both locations and that there are plans for even more improvements to be made early next year. Bini also announced that GreenStar has received an award from Sustainable Tompkins in recognition of the solar panels newly-installed on our receiving area roof.

A unanimous decision was made by Council to have GreenStar endorse the “Coalition Letter Requesting Governor Paterson to Withdraw the Department of Environmental Conservation’s Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement for Oil and Gas Mining” currently posted on the toxicstargeting.com website. This proposal was found to be in keeping with GreenStar’s commitment to ecological responsibility and leadership as there are many questions that still remain regarding the safety concerns and the environmental impact of the newly developed methods for natural gas drilling and extraction, as recent GreenLeaf articles have discussed.
