  • draft sent out earlier today
  • report of monthly employees not made for most of 2015, resulting in $500 in late fees
  • Shirley has paid these fees to be able to renew our 2016 city business license
  • why was the board not notified of these fees prior to them being paid? We have a limited budget and should have been notified.

  • December rent check not yet cashed
  • Trae will send Andrew a email to follow up why.
