Marie brought the meeting to order.  Marie made a motion to accept February’s minutes, Brad seconded.

Dave reviewed income & expenses since February and provided bank statements for the board’s records.  A copy was given to Theresa for filing with board records. There was one credit for savings interest and one expense for the file cabinet purchased to store CLID documents.

The CLID website host had changed ownership at the end of 2015 which created a loss of some features, i.e. automatic email update notifications.  Marie researched various options and presented them to the board.  Bevcomm is a local company and was able to provide all of the needed services at a very minimal increase over current provider.  After discussing the cost breakdown and services, Dave made a motion to switch, Theresa seconded and it passed unanimously.

Sam received all Carp Kabob info and equipment from Brad. He will be taking over the project this year. Marie motioned to approve up to $2500 out of the carp budget for the tournament in the possible absence of grant money from Scott County and Dave seconded and all voted in favor. The tournament will be held May 13th if weather permits.

Marie gave an update on the Lake Treatment provider.  A company was selected for the weed spraying for 2016-2018 but has yet to be officially approved by the Scott County board at their April meeting.

At this point there have been no applications for the two director vacancies.  It was also noted that the Secretary position will also be vacant since Theresa held that office.

The verbiage for the postcard announcement for the annual meeting was approved.  It was decided to add the website address to the return address.  Theresa will get the postcards ordered and let Marie know when they have arrived so she can apply the labels and postage for mailing by March 25.

It was decided that all participants in the annual meeting will arrive at the site by 6:30 to set up.

The slide presentation was reviewed.   Dave mentioned that he would touch base with Melissa to get her information for the slides.  Sam will bring his laptop to use for the presentation.

Marie motioned to adjourn the meeting and Gary seconded.

The annual Meeting will be held at the New Prague Fire Hall on April 12.  It is the same location as last year at the New Prague Fire/Emergency Services Building at 505 5th Ave. NW, New Prague.  

The next board of directors meeting will be on May 10 at the New Prague Library from 6:30-8 p.m.
