 A tentative budget plan for 2017-2018 was presented by Dale.  This will be adjusted and changed in the next couple months to be presented to the city by their February, 2017 meeting, so they can complete their city budget by the deadline in March. The supervisors will hear from the county librarians in January, as they start their budget process. 

 Shawneene expressed concern that she was slow to learn how to do some things. The board tried to ease her mind and are not worried about her learning her job.  She and the board thank Katrina, as she continues to help Shawneene “learn the ropes!”  She is a perfect example of a good volunteer.

The next meeting is Monday December 19, 2016 at 6:00.  Note the change of day because of the Christmas holidays.

 Jean reminded the group that she will be in AZ for the December meeting. 

 There being no further business, the motion by Nancy and second by Carmen, carried.
