Agenda

Agenda from Eric

Hey, time for some ranty agenda from Eric. Fun!

  • We do not have gas until the 18th. People's gas is coming out then between 1130 and 1530. Someone has to be there. We do not seem to have access to the spot where the gas meters are, as there is an iron grille in the front and high fencing in the back that belongs to our neighbor. We need to discuss with them the right of way perhaps.
    • What is the arrangement that leads us to be in charge of the gas? I can't find our lease, since presumably Ish still has it from faxing it the other day. Ish bring back the lease please.
    • Ishmael faxed the lease. I don't suppose he scanned it also? I think we should all have an electronic copy of the lease.
  • Mail. Someone has to be responsible for opening this. I found an envelope of unopened mail while looking for the lease. As a result, there are these things:
    • We got $450 from NIU 6 weeks ago. Did we pay will $450 for supplies? What did we pay him, so how much do we keep out of this?
    • People's gas wants our articles of incorporation and business license, things that they kindly didn't ask me for on the phone when I set up the account. Do we have both of those?


Old Business

  • Tim
    • Status of money owed by the old landlord? (Steve's letter formally asking for the deposit back)
    • Bill-of-materials for the workshop build-out
  • Patrick
    • Cleaning service status (we had a bill, did they clean?)
  • Dan
    • Install shop air valve between our area and Tony's and attach our compressor to the system. (Note: it seems that Tony the landlord will get his guy to do this).
  • Steve Finkleman
  • Shawn
  • Eric
    • Get wiring set up to move the good wifi enabled thermostat over near the other thermostat so we can make some fancier smart-hvac stuff to prevent us wasting energy on heating/cooling when nobody is around. Tony is going to bill us a little bit to get his guy to move the theromostat, but not much since it's just a reconnection of the device.
  • Steve Farkas
    • Audit
    • finance tracking going forward
    • policies for separation of responsibility
    • Tax exemption letter

    • We need to improve our implementation of the tool certification process.
    • Dust management in the shop
    • inventory and ownership status of old landlord's stuff left on our side.

New Business

  • Financial/membership report
  • Reimburse Jeremy for welder?
  • calculate electric bill and give Tony a check.
  • area hosts meeting 1st and 3rd tuesdays instead of board meeting?
  • Donations through the school factory vs directly to us. We got notification of a materiel donation form Kathy on the director list, on 10/18. How are we supposed to track those? Do we need to?
  • insurance paperwork/quotes/status (liability, d&o, business property)
