Item #1: Election of 2010- 2011 Officers:

There were two commissioners whose terms ended during the Lake Beulah Management District Annual Meeting on August 23, 2010:  Dave Bitter and Stan Alger.  Both Mr. Bitter and Mr. Alger nominated themselves for 2010-2011.  Since there were no other nominations, Mr. Bitter and Mr. Alger will continue their service.

Commissioner Alger made a motion accept the following commissioners of Lake Beulah Management District for August 2010 through August 2011 as follows:

LBMD Chairperson: David Bitter
LBMD Vice Chair: David Skotarzak
LBMD Treasurer: Richard Dow
LBMD Secretary: Val Johnson

Item #2:  Approved the Meeting Minutes July 28, 2010

There was a brief discussion regarding the minutes from the July 28, 2010 meeting.

Commissioner Dorn made a motion to accept the minutes from July 28, 2010 as presented, Commissioner Alger seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.

 

Item #3: Treasurer’s Report presented by Treasurer/Commissioner Dick Dow.

Check signing privileges (amount increase):

Commissioner Dow briefly reviewed the finances discussed during the Annual Meeting. Commissioner Dow would like to see an increase in the check signing privileges with a single signature.  The maximum amount for a check with a single signature is currently $1000 and Commissioner Dow would like an increased amount of $2000.  The $1000 amount poses a problem when payroll checks are issued and two signatures are required.  Payroll checks tend to exceed the current approved amount of $1000.

Commissioner Dow made a motion to increase the amount of check signing privileges with a single signature to $2,000. Commissioner Stan Alger seconded the motion and the motion passed unanimously.

Stipend for 2009-2010:

Chairman Bitter suggested the following stipend for LBMD Commissioners:

$3,000 to Chairperson:  Dave Bitter
$2,500 to Vice Chair: David Skotarzak
$2,500 to Treasurer: Richard Dow
$2,500 to Secretary-: Val Johnson

$1,500 each for elected Commissioners and appointed Commissioners:  Stan Alger, Doug Dorn and Rick Stacey.

Commissioner Dow made a motion to accept the stipend amounts suggested, Chairman Bitter seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.
