LMNOP Parcel 4 contract:
- The LMNOP contract looks great and we voted to move forward with the contract.
- HOWEVER, we can only sign a contract for $184,519k, which is the amount of money we currently have on hand (per Marissa’s email on 3/15/2018 — including CCG, unrestricted funds, volunteer of the year award). Though we MAY get more money from Ahsha, we won’t know for sure until July 1 and cannot sign a contract using “potential” funds.
- Therefore, we need to postpone $38,130 worth of work until we obtain the funds. We can keep the “postponed” work in the contract as “add-ons” to be completed once we obtain the funds.
- Follow up: Mary Beth to email Marissa and Warren with a draft email to LMNOP and then, with revisions, reach out directly to LMNOP to a final “phased” contract. Nahal and Eric should be involved in the decisions about phasing.
- Marissa encouraged group to start seriously fund raising — this will be an agenda item for the May meeting. Even if we get the discussed $30k from Ahsha, we will still be ~$8k short of funds for the full LMNOP Parcel 4 contract. Kristin will create a google sheet to start collecting fundraising ideas in advance of the May meeting.
- Warren: please follow-up with Eric M. regarding adding a statement to the donate page on RLN about donations being tax deductible
The next meeting will be on Tuesday, May 1 at 7:00pm at the Ingleside Library, unless otherwise notified.
