Review Accounts Payable Expenditures

Amber Ragle explained payroll transactions and electricity were the only things paid in the month of May. The budget process will be starting at the end of June and she asked if there were any changes needed to be made for the 2010 budget. Michael Griffey asked how long the pay for Parks Board members has been the current amount. Amber did not know, but suggested this was not the year to ask about increasing it due to budget constraints. The Parks Board members are paid an annual stipend, not per meeting attended.


Old Business

Amber Ragle reviewed the minutes from the last meeting since she was absent and asked if a deposit needs to be collected from the Ellettsville First Assembly Men of Purpose Ministry for the use of the Shelter House. There was a unanimous yes. Amber will contact them and collect.The rental fee will be paid if the rain date is used.


New Business

Amber Ragle was contacted by Brad Taylor of the Ellettsville Christian Church. They are planning 2 events this summer. The dates they would like to rent the shelter houses are July 8th and August 23rd. They would like to rent the large shelter house on July 8th and for August 23rd; they would like to rent the large shelter house and the bigger one at Campbellís Park. Amber explained since starting the rental process for the shelter houses, Ellettsville Christian Church has rented it numerous times per year and have always left them in good shape after their events and she thought that it would be a nice gesture if the Parks Board could give them some kind of deal since they are repeat renters and the fees have been waived for some other entities in the past. Amber also informed the board that their events are open to anyone in the community who would like to attend. Michael Griffey made a motion to waive the $50 fee on the Campbellís Park Shelter House for the August 23rd event. Amber Ragle seconded. Motion carried.



Michael Griffey made a motion to adjourn. Richard Pease seconded. Jimmie Durnil adjourned the meeting.
