Present: Becky David, Kelly Flege, Scott Danner, Steve Phyfe, Joe Barber, Fr Doug Wathier. Also present: Deacon Phil Paladino, Dixie Jacobs, Will Kurtt.
Monthly Financials: We expect to end the year on budget. A vent system was installed for the furnaces in the office area for $1,850. This wasn’t budgeted but will prevent future issues with the furnaces. A $850 rake to collect yard debris especially for the cemeteries was purchased with memorial gifts. No other extraordinary expenditures to report. Becky D made a motion to accept the financials as presented; Steve seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.
Phase 2 Building Update: First meeting held to begin construction drawings. Architect estimate $1.7m with extra (4th) classroom. He recommended proceeding with bidding process including 4th classrooms. In the rapidly changing materials market, it is difficult to estimate cost. The decision on the number of classrooms can be made after the bids are submitted. Architect will make suggested changes and the next meeting will be in May.
Kelly made amotion to adjourn; Scott seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.
