Minutes of Previous Meeting

Acceptance of the minutes as amended moved by Bernie Hart, Seconded by John McKay. Carried with one abstention.

Report on policy implications re secure server

Deferred to the next meeting.

Halifax inner city initiative

Due to problems which have become apparent with GPI Atlantic, Chebucto's continuing participation is now in doubt. It seems appropriate that Chebucto pursue involvement in the inner city initiative through ties to other organizations. This will require a new funding proposal to be submitted to the HRDC.

Moved by Reg Hody that the board empower Marilyn Macdonald and Bernie Hart to pursue further negotiations relating to the Halifax Inner City Initiative, seconded by Mark Rushton. Motion Carried.

Canadian Community Networks: Wireless

Several cities and companies have implemented 802.11b wireless networks successfully in densely populated areas. Mark Rushton will pursue the possibility of a local implementation.

Court case

Moved by Reg Hody to go In Camera, Seconded by Mark Alberstat. Motion Carried.

[In camera discussion omitted]

Moved by Reg Hody, to end In Camera session, seconded by Gerard McNeil. Motion carried.


Committee Reports

Finance Committee

Bernie Hart submitted a brief analysis of Chebucto's financial situation.

It appears that Dalhousie has doubled the network connectivity charges to Chebucto for upstream Internet access, this should be dealt with (a new agreement should be negotiated).

Moved by Mark Rushton, seconded by Jeff Warnica that further concerns related to CCN tax information should be deferred to the next meeting. Carried with two abstentions.
