Franzoi moved, Golz seconded to approve the meeting minutes of July 23, 2019.
Discussion and update on meeting room tables and chairs - Library Custodian Dave Powell cleaned the meeting room tables and there are 4-5 tops that are chipped or broken.  The tops of those tables may be able to be replaced.  There are 40 newer and 90 old stackable chairs.  Rather than replacing tables and chairs next year, this should be integrated with the facilities upgrade.  The motion was unanimously approved.

Schwerbel spoke with Architect Brandon Gries who suggested conducting a facility assessment.  Schwerbel gave him the information from the Aspen Institute, library drawings and the 2019-2023 strategic plan.  It was suggested putting $10,000 in the budget for architectural fees and doing a walk through with Brandon, Dave, Vicki and Adam in the next two weeks.  Library staff should address space utilization first.  It was recommended calling Aspen Institute before the next meeting to find out what their consultation fee is since they are the innovators in working with libraries and could provide some direction.  

Motion made by Franzoi, seconded by Golz to submit the 2020 capital improvement projects as reallocated above to the Board of Trustees for approval.  The motion was unanimously approved.  

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 10, at 10:45am.  

Golz moved to adjourn, seconded by Franzoi at 9:28am.  The motion was unanimously approved.

Respectfully submitted,
Kathy Dreyer, recording secretary
