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.

After months of negotiations, legal advice, research and planning, Council and management have announced an opportunity for GreenStar to purchase the land and buildings at 700-702 West Buffalo Street. Member-owners may vote on this proposal from May 13-30. Please look for information at both stores, in this GreenLeaf and on our website, and plan on attending a Special Membership Meeting on Thursday, May 13 at 6:30 pm at the Women’s Community Building to discuss this opportunity.
Council began our April 13 meeting with this much-awaited announcement, which caused a small flurry of questions and some brainstorming among those present. Still, with all ten current Councilmembers, six candidates who are not on Council, and seven staff members present at the meeting, we managed to come to agreement on many issues and conduct all of the business on our agenda.
