Discussion on the raising of table fees. The board had talked about raising fees for 2 years or more. Last year they voted on raising table fees to to $6 and $7 the following year. The motion did not pass. Now it is next year and the board passed the raise to $7. The money in the treasury has been supplemented by $4400 donations last year. We can not count on this. Our entry fees lost $3000-$4000 last year. Also putting on a sectional requires a lot of work and if we do not get volunteers we may not have them and then we wouldn't have that extra income. All this was taken into consideration when we decided to raise the fees. We were asked for the figures on utilities if we moved to Shirks. Present location Shirks Electric, Sewer, Water $3640 $ 3700 Gas $1352 $1644 There was a motion by Tim Carl and seconded by Karen Drain to do a 5 year lease, stay at our present location and have a $6 entry fee. This did not pass. It was by a vote of 3/3. Then there was a motion to sign a 5 yr lease, stay at our present location and have a table fee of $7. This passed by a vote of 4/2.
Next months meeting will be March 18th.
