3. Minutes(Meyer/Feldman) moved to accept the minutes as corrected for the previous board meeting. The motion carried unanimously.
4. New Business:  Anastasia asked whether Michael’s items from the previous meeting were dealt with. He said that Area 5 had taken them up rather than the Transportation Committee meeting. Anastasia added Regional Budget Day – that he was going to attend – to the agenda. There was a possibility that Karen Bass would be present at the meeting.
The board discussed the grievance filed against board member Paul Woolsey. Anastasia said she has received several communications from various business owners regarding this same problem. In response, Paul told Anastasia that he had been approached by club owners to help them with permits; however he has always refused and has never presented on behalf of any of these clubs to HHWNC. He also stated that he did not take money from anyone. However, Anastasia advised Paul that the stakeholder has provided her a copy of a check made out to him and endorsed/cashed by him. The grievance is on record with D.O.N.E. and with the City Attorney’s office.
The executive committee requested that Anastasia speak with Paul to encourage him to follow correct board procedures and to take corrective measures with the stakeholder.
5. Election Issues: The executive committee reviewed candidates for the May election. No one is running for Secretary or Parliamentarian.
