The November meeting of the Board of Trustees was called to order by President Terry Mauer. In attendance, were trusteesSchoenwetter, Chapman, Peck, Wilt, Hickman, Mastin, and Slaton, with Secretary Flesner arriving later.
Librarian Pat Rose, acted as Secretary in the absence of Secretary Flesner, by reading the minutes of the October 1stmeeting. No additions or corrections were noted.
The Treasurer’s Report was reviewed by Jill Hickman.
Bills were presented for review and payment. Doug Slaton moved that the bills be paid with a second by David Wilt. The bills were approved by unanimous consent of the remaining trustees.
Librarian Rose read her report for the month in which she included a synopsis of the troubles over a Comcast error that continues to plague the staff and city employees. It seems that Comcast claims a bill for a service provided to the library a year ago was never paid for. The library nor the city ever ordered this service, never received a bill, or were ever aware that this service was being provided. Arguing this subject over and over again seemed to go no where, therefore Rose turned all information over to the city to solve.
In Unfinished Business, Librarian Rose stated that the computers have arrived, the printers have been ordered, as have the automation supplies. This was accomplished by use of the city’s credit line.
In New Business, Librarian Rose stated that she has arranged for a Public Health employee to visit the library on November 12th to provide public information concerning affordable health insurance through the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace.
No Maintenance report was provided.
With no further business, President Mauer adjourned the meeting at
