Meeting Minutes

Attendance: Dave Hazekamp, Elroy Buckner, Kris Cole, Mark Mesbergen, and Bob Szymoniak

1. Bus/Vehicles
Mark discussed the need for a couple of replacement buses for our fleet. Our current sub bus fleet is old and some of the buses will not pass inspection next year. Mark recommended purchasing two buses off of an expired lease for $55,000 per bus. The buses will be expensed in the General Fund and this committee will re-evaluate in January to see if we want to reallocate the expense.

2. Merit Pay
Bob and Mark discussed their ideas regarding merit pay.

3. Other – ECC Prices
Mark explained the request from Pam Bergey to increase the Early Childhood Center daycare rates by $5.00 per week per child. This would generate approximately $320/week to cover the increase to labor and benefit costs. Meeting adjourned at 1:00 p.m.

Respectfully submitted by Mark Mesbergen
