Hancock Library Board of Trustees
June 22, 2011
Present: Laurie Bryan, Amy Markus, Mary Garland, Peter Ryner
The meeting began at 1:30 pm.
The Minutes of May 25, 2011 were approved.
The financial report was approved.
Amy had advised the Board that Britton has given notice. Amy was now seeking guidance from the Board as to whether or not to advertise the position, since she already has a top candidate who had previously been offered the job at the time when Britton was hired. After some discussion, the Board was unanimous in suggesting that Amy not advertise. If Amy knows who she wants to hire, if that person is qualified, and if that person was previously selected for the job through an advertised search, then to advertise now would just waste considerable time and raise false hopes to those who apply.
Amy reviewed pending July events and indicated that painting, as previously approved by the Board, would commence in the near future. Mary indicated that she would work with Amy on a final selection of colors for the interior work.
It was agreed that unless some special need arises, the Board will not meet in August, and that the next meeting would be on July 27th at 1:00 pm.
At 2:00 pm, the Board voted to go into executive session to discuss personnel matters. At 2:07 the Board voted to come out of executive session and to retain the minutes in executive session.
The meeting ended at 2:10 pm
