The income for the month was $11077, which was close to that of January 2009. A $2725 grant from HRC@P was included in this figure.

Expenses for January were $3311. This figure is very close to that of December.

Alan noted CCN's financial statue is quite positive and as long as expenses continue to be low we can keep within the budget.

Acceptance of the report moved by Alan. Seconded by Kent. Passed.

Technical Report

Johnathan presented a short technical report. He noted the invoice for the Wifi equipment had been received from the supplier in Montreal. It should be paid during the next week, and order should arrive by mid-March.

Johnathan noted that the system handling spam should be replaced fairly soon. He would like to see a new one in place before problems arise. No significant surges of spam have occurred recently, but it is increasing incrementally.


Joe Howe Manor project

A copy of the site lease covering the installation of equipment on Joe Howe Manor is in hand. Andrew will begin the process of obtaining insurance for this venture as a copy of the policy needs to be attached to the lease. There will be no cost for the lease. The initial insurance should between $600-$700 but the cost for each additional building will significantly less.


Town Hall/ Community Forum

Members took part in an open discussion, focused on the format and content of the first community Town Hall, which will be held at the regional library in Spryfield, 10 March 2010.

Andrew will devise a poster over the weekend. Richard and Bernie offered to distribute the poster, and other members will undertaken as many as they can on display as well.

Andrew will display the meeting in the website, and an announcement will be sent to all members via email.

Mike asked for suggestions of people who members thought should be contacted directly. He will start by asking the library for a list of community organizations and businesses. Members offered to focus on locating contacts from specific groups:

  • Jeff - businesses and property owners
  • Alan - churches
  • Michael - community groups
  • Bernie - politicians
