The consensus of the board was to have it as a matter of public record that the board conferred with the attorney in the ongoing legal process for Declaratory Ruling.

Gary mentioned that the South Newfane Schoolhouse is in need of some wood to shore up the floor boards, and wondered about taking some boards out of the cellar in the Williamsville Hall. Todd took a look, and didn’t see anything that needed to be kept. The consensus of the board was to let them take the wood and ratify the decision at the next regular meeting. It will be on the next regular agenda.

A motion was made by Piet van Loon and seconded by Guy Wachtel to adjourn the meeting at 3:12 p.m. Unanimous.

Respectfully Submitted,
Shannon Meckle
