Follow up AGM Survey

be circulated to the other members. All members are asked to read it and
suggest any ideas of directions that may come arise from the survey.
Bernie noted that during the workshop period at the AGM the Scott Donovan

Bristol Communications application
The application to Bristol Communications was submitted. The material used
in the Bristol application can be used as a template for other funding
No official financial statement was presented, but Alan Turner confirmed
that there was $28171.60 in cash assets plus 7000 in the current account.
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.
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.
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.
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.
