Hancock Library Board of Trustees
May 25, 2011
Present: Laurie Bryan, Amy Markus, Peter Ryner
The meeting began at 1 pm.
The Minutes of April 27, 2011 were approved.
There was no financial report
The Board requested that Amy post a public notice for a public hearing to be held at 1 pm on June 22 to receive a donation from the estate of Duckie Gardner. The Board accepted a gift from Janet Schaefer for $500. The Board also accepted a gift of $50 from Elizabeth Tobey. These funds will be deposited in the Library Trustee account which is presently held by the Bank of America.
The Board voted to not accept the offer of the Town Hall generator which is being replaced. This decision was based primarily upon the substantial cost that would be required to prepare a site for the generator and the cost of modifying the existing Library electrical system. The Board also was concerned that the generator was too large for the available site and would produce a substantial amount of noise. Amy reported that the Public Works Director had suggested that a much smaller house-hold type generator might be sufficient for the Library.
Amy provided samples of roof shingles. The Board went outside to better judge which shingle to use, and concluded that a charcoal gray architectural shingle would be most suitable.
Amy then reviewed a series of events scheduled for June.
The meeting ended at 2:00 pm.
