Meeting Minutes

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

  1. Clerical Tentative Agreement
    Mark presented the tentative agreement for the clerical union. If approved, the clerical union will receive steps each year and 2% increases in year two and three.
  2. Bond Bids
    Mark gave a recommendation from OAK to approve 7 bids for Bid Pack 1. This bid pack is for turf, track, tennis courts and a parking lot. The bids were vetted based on the process that we have done in the past.
  3. Summer Taxes
    Mark gave an update on a resolution to collect summer taxes for Fruitport and Spring Lake Townships next year. This is done annually and has to be done by the end of the calendar year.
  4. Other- Retirement Payment
    Mark gave an update on a recommendation that he is going to present to the personnel committee. Due to the climate of not having a lot of candidates for our open teaching position, the district would like to offer a retirement payment if a teacher notifies the district by February 1, 2022 (one month earlier than what is in the contract). This recommendation will be presented to the personnel committee.

Meeting adjourned at 12:05 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Mark Mesbergen
