Order of Business:

  • Review requested increase to the Library Directors stipend.

 Director presented line items in the payroll expenses including stipend with hard copy breakdown including FICA, quick book fees, rotation of labor hours, and the decrease in business hours open for the winter, to show this proposal would keep the Library in budget range.

  • Investigating a new computer program for payroll to help save money.
  • Buffer tapped into only as a necessity, currently with proposal not needed.
  • Currently the budget is at $145,000.00 with budgeted amount being set at $155,000.00.
  • Everything is well on target in regards to the budget. The budget should still have a positive ending should the proposal be included.
  • Request is for a $200.00 increase for the insurance.  Was previously increased by $100.00.  The new request is to increase stipend an additional $200.00 bringing the overall monthly stipend to  $500.00.  This will cover the Director’s premium.
