Business and Finance Committee
Monday, December 6, 2021
11:30 a.m., Board Room
Attendance: Dave Hazekamp, Elroy Buckner, Kris Cole, and Mark Mesbergen
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
