Also present: Ulster Township Supervisors Joe Perechinsky, Gerry Chandler, Chuck Cotter, Sheshequin Township Supervisors Bob Smith and Roberta Sabitus-Place; and other residents of both townships as listed on the sign in sheet on file. Laura opened the meeting at 7:35pm, with introductions made by all present. Treasurer's report: Gene presented the proposed 2003 budget and answered questions from the supervisors. No final decisions were made, it is not clear yet whether either township will include funding for the rec center in their budgets. Several suggestions for other methods of fund-raising were offered. There was no current treasurers report prepared because the files are in transit. Gene will purchase quick-books software, and absorb the cost as a donation to the rec center. Minutes: Rorry read the minutes from the 9/17 meeting, Roach/Knapp motion was passed to accept the minutes as corrected to reflect the proposed hourly rental fee as $15 + $5 for DJ for Ulster and Sheshequin taxpayers, and $30 + $5 for non- taxpayers. Previous/Unfinished Business: Madeline's placque: no report Maintenance issues: Doug Felt and Eric Mathews sealed the skate floor, donating their time and labor. Doug also paid for the materials. Jeff Harford worked on the skate light under the supervision of his tech teacher, and believes it is now working. Don Roach will be purchasing the needed bulbs. The roof leak was not addressed. By-laws revisions: tabled until after skating begins, but a high priority. New Business: Fee Schedules: After much discussion, a Weisbrod/Colon motion was passed to charge admission for skating, no fee for organized Ulster and Sheshequin, youth group activities, with a $1 per head fee for non-resident; and for other uses, charge $15/hr for tax paying residents, $30/hr non resident, plus an additional $5/hr to DJ. Insurance: it was questioned whether our policy is sufficient for our needs, this needs to be reviewed in the near future. Opening Skating: because there was no time left to discuss this, the next meeting will focus exclusively on this goal. Next Meeting: Will be TUESDAY, October 15, 2002, at 7:30 pm. A Weisbrod/Knapp motion was passed to adjourn the meeting at 9:35pm.
