  1. Public Comment


  1. Financial Report

Director Fong reviewed the financial reports.  The financial year is 91% lapsed, and the spending is on track.  President Black asked Director Fong about the money from the part-time employees account.  In the past, as the financial year comes to a close, money in this account has been overspent.  Director Fong said that this year, she has been more judicious with the part-time employee’s hours.

The budget for the 2017-18 financial year presented by Director Fong has been approved by the City Council.  Mayor Eyre has implemented a 1% cost of living and 1% merit raise for City Employees.

The financial reports were received and filed on a motion made by Lois Holt, seconded by Pepper Pehrson.  Voting was unanimous in favor.
