Treasurer's Report

  • $4050.92 in the bank.
  • Gas bill is averaging $28 per month, electricity is averaging $213 per month this year (higher than usual, but ok since space is getting more use)
  • We are paying for our own dumpster now, $35 per month
  • No longer sharing any expenses with other tennants on this property, insulates us from the issues we've had there
  • Bringing in slightly less than our monthly overhead cost, but still have plenty of cushion for now.

Agenda Discussions

  • The Board/Officers are changing this year. Voting will take place during the Yearly Meeting in 2017.

Other Topics

  • Investigating the possibility of getting a storage shed. City will soon start construction in the creek area so parking cars or sheds near the fence is no longer viable.
  • Search continues for a new space, Jenett estimates we have 1 to 1.5 years yet before the city kicks us out of this building.
  • 3D printer: Donations need to be collected for the 3D printer fundraiser. More info on these pages: Makerfarm_12-Inch_Pegasus_3D_Printer / New_3d_Printer.
