John McKinney stated that the By-laws are separate documents. The Rules and Regulations are separate documents. The Addendum is also separate. The TMAC Committee has now become the TMAC Board. Every committee will be given copies of the By-laws and a copy will be posted in the Club House. A kitchen committee should be formed to review the kitchen operating rules. Motion to accept the By-laws made by Jay Etherton with support from Shirley Kabet.
Bruce Eberly spoke to his thoughts on several issues. The ship container was dropped off by the previous park owner and now belongs to TMAC. The two storage units located in the Activity area need to be cleaned out. All committees will have an opportunity to look at their contents and take what they feel they can use. All other items will be donated.
Any committee that has a purchase of over $200 must submit a formal request to TMAC for the money. The exception to this is if your committee needs money to run their daily/monthly business.
The repair of the ship storage container was addressed by Bruce and his company proposal for repair was read by Bruce. Steve Batey spoke to getting other quotes on the container repair. An existing committee must oversee this process. This was supported by Jay Etherton. John McKinney made a formal request to receive written bids on the repair of the container. This was supported by Steve Batey. It was also addressed that the Tech Committee will oversee the distribution of the TAG “goods” located in all storage areas. This was supported by Jay Etherton.
Motion to adjourn was made at 4:35 p.m.
NEXT MONTHLY MEETING WILL BE SCHEDULED FOR FEBRUARY 20, 2019 IN THE CLUB HOUSE.
If your committee has no report I was not in receipt of your report.
