Committee Reports

Financial Report

Alan Turner, Treasurer, noted the figures needed for February's report were not yet available. However, a preliminary review suggested the revenue for the month was about what was expected.

Alan noted he should have the figures in a couple days and will complete his report at that time.

Technical Report

Johnathan said the equipment needed for initial wifi installation for Joe Howe Manor arrived. Equipment could be installed on Gerrard Hall as soon as April. Once that has been completed the work on Joe Howe Manor could move forward.

Johnathan and Andrew will look into upgrading their safety certification. Once this has been accomplished Andrew will apply for the insurance CCN should hold before further rooftop or exterior wall installations are undertaken.

A copy of the the insurance policy will be attached the Metro Housing Authority lease related to the exterior installation of equipment before work on Joe How Manor begins.


Review of Spryfield Town Hall and next steps

A wide ranging discussion served as review of the initial community based Town Hall focused on the Digital Divide held the previous night at the Spryfield Public Library. Mike was commended for his organizational work, and Andrew, Terry and Mike were congratulated on their presentations and fielding various questions. Although the audience was small, the success of the evening as a whole served to spur the Board towards moving forward with the Town Hall format.

Mike will work with Cheryl Black, a library staff member, to set up meetings which will be announced in the forthcoming Library Guide. He will attempt to secure a sequence of meetings for May and June at the branch libraries in Bedford, Clayton Park/Fairview (Keshen Goodman), Dartmouth (Alderney Gate and/or Dartmouth North), and Sackville.

Annual General Meeting and Board Election

The AGM will held Thursday evening April 29. Room 1009 on the ground floor of Rowe Building across the street from the Student Union Building, at the corner of Seymour and University Avenue, Dalhousie campus. Meeting time will probably be set for 7:00pm but there was a suggestion of 6:30. This should be finalized within the next several days.

The presentation at the AGM could be a mini Town Hall, perhaps billed as the 6th Town Hall.

A request asking members to consider taking up a Board responsbility will be posted on the website shortly.


Next meeting

The next meeting will be Thursday, 8 April 6:30 pm.

Meeting was adjourned at 8:10 pm.
