DIRECTOR’S REPORT

 

1.      The public hearing on the Appropriation Ordinance is at 5:30 PM the evening of the board meeting.

2.      On the agenda as new business:

A.    Appointment of Loretta Silkwood as new trustee.

B.     Appointment of treasurer.

C.     The annual 2¢ Building and Maintenance Tax resolution. This has been prepared and is included in the board packet.

D.    Global Brass Agreement. This ends the tax challenges from the brass mill, of course they were granted an assessment reduction.

 

3.      Under old business are the Committee Appointments and the annual Appropriation Ordinance.

 

4.      The Levy Ordinance has been prepared and will be distributed at the board meeting.

 

5.      Under discussion, I have included the plaque for Jerry Podesva and Jason Bricker will speak about the proposed East Alton history book.

 

6.      In odd moments, sometimes I think all of our moments are odd, the Adult non-fiction is being shifted for more shelving space. The cd books have been moved.

 

7.      We will need to consider moving those accounts that are in the Illinois Funds investment pool. The Illinois funds are being transferred by the state to US Bank. The fee schedule is ridiculous.

 

8.      Once a treasurer is known, I will go to Liberty Bank and get new account signature cards. Darlene will order a signature stamp.

 

9.      We are hosting the Midtown Mom’s school supply donation box.

 

10.  I have taken the liberty of sending Loretta Silkwood a board packet.
