The minutes from the May meeting were approved by a motion from Connie and second from Nancy.

The city clerk’s final budget sheet for the fiscal year 2017-2018 was handed out.  With the use of memorial money to offset the shortfall, there is now zero amount in the general fund.  The council approved at their June 4, 2018 meeting to transfer $6,560.00 from the General Fund Account to the Library Fund per 2018-2019 Budget.  The Greene County share is $6,559.00 for the 2018-2019 Fiscal Year.  At some point in the next fiscal year, $2,000.00 from the Gillett CD will be used to reimburse the $1,200 Rotary Grant and $522.67 memorial money used to balance this year’s year-end budget, as was approved at the city council meeting on May 7, 2018. 

General Fund:  0

Memorial Balance:  $2,123.94

The bills were reviewed and Nancy moved with a second from Connie that they be presented to the city for payment.

There was no correspondence and the circulation and programs report from June were handed out.

There was no old business.

New business included Maryann Mori of the State Library Services, who gave an interesting overview of the standards for accreditation for libraries.
