August 6, 2012


The Ellettsville Parks Board met in a regular meeting on Monday, August 6, 2012 at the Ellettsville Fire Department Training and Conference Room, 5080 West State Road 46, Bloomington, Indiana.  Richard Pease called the meeting to order at 5:30 p.m.


Pledge of Allegiance

Jimmie Durnil led the Board in the Pledge.


Members in Attendance

Board members Jimmie Durnil, President; Claudetta Kelly, Secretary, and Geraldine McIntyre were in attendance.  Richard Pease and Phillip Rogers were absent.  


Approval of Minutes

Geraldine McIntyre made a motion for the approval of the minutes for the regular meetings on April 1, 2012 and July 2, 2012.  Claudetta Kelly seconded.  Motion carried.


Prior to the vote Jimmie Durnil noted in the July 2, 2012 meeting they asked for $9,800 and $750 for shipping but they’re holding off on it until they get more money appropriated. 


Review of Accounts Payable Expenditures

Jimmie Durnil stated the current balance in the total budget estimate is $26,253.  The Clerk-Treasurer is going to move $16,000 to the appropriated funds so there will be enough money next year to do the benches for the fall festival.


New Business

Geraldine McIntyre asked about the money they get from the machines at the park.  Mr. Durnil replied Amber Ragle Wright usually takes care of it.  Ms. McIntyre noted they pay for the electric also.  Mr. Durnil advised the proposed electric in the budget is $3,500.  He couldn’t locate the amount received from the machines.  He will see what he can find out from Ms. Wright.


Jimmie Durnil told Carol not to come to the meeting.  He was going to have her give a presentation on the disk golf but since Sandra Hash said they couldn’t do it right now he told her not to come.  Ms. Hash is looking at some paperwork to give them a chance to partner with them.  The problem is because the money wasn’t being spent for something on the park grounds it would not behoove them to do that. 


Jimmie Durnil thanked Claudetta Kelly for preparing the agenda.  He asked if she could continue to prepare the agenda.  Ms. Kelly replied she would.



Geraldine McIntyre made a motion to adjourn.  Claudetta Kelly seconded.  Motion carried.  The meeting was adjourned.
