Committee Reports

Financial Report

No official financial statement was presented, but Alan Turner confirmed that there was $28171.60 in cash assets plus 7000 in the current account.

Technical Committee

The Wifi installation on Fenwick Place is almost complete. The computer that controls the antenna will be relocated. In order to make it functional some new parts (USB extenders, wifi card etc) were ordered and should be here in a here in a few days. Once these are installed it should be capable of controlling several antennae.

We must find out if there are municipal bylaws which restrict the placement of the antennae. Andrew will investigate this.

Ed Dyer mentioned there will be a "wireless cities" convention in Vancouver early in the fall. Chebucto cannot afford to send anyone, but should try and get access to the results.


Other Business

Meeting with HRM Councilors:

When we have at least one node up and running we should meet with key councilors of HRM. Board members are asked to suggest whom we should meet and what arrangements we should try and make for such a meeting.

Registered Agent:

Hugh Wright has for years been our registered agent. He has not been an active member for a long time and has suggested he would appreciate being replaced. Moved by Marilyn MacDonald and seconded by Ed Dyer that Andrew be appointed as the registered agent with his address being the office. Carried.

Cell Phone Purchase:

Ed noted his CCN cell phone was on its last legs. It was agreed that a motion was not needed, he should just go ahead and replace it, including changing the supplier if such move would give him better service.

The next board meeting is scheduled for June 14, 6:30 pm
Executive meeting scheduled for May 28, 5:30 pm

Meeting adjourned at 7:30 pm
