Merrimac Public Library Board of Trustees

Trustees’ Meeting, September 14, 2016


We accepted with regret Linda Getzes’ resignation effective October 12. Jeff handed out a copy of the pertinent statute contained in Massachusetts General Laws regarding resignation of a library trustee. The trustees agreed to follow steps one and two recommended by Jeff. Jeff will notify the selectmen of Linda’s resignation from the board. We will fill the position at our regular October monthly meeting on the 12th, and the selectmen will be invited to attend and cast their recorded vote.

The Cultural Council grant is due, which Jen is working on and will leave with Tina. Susan suggested that we apply for $600.

The minutes for the trustees’ meeting on May 11, 2016 were unanimously accepted as written. The Director’s Report was sent to the trustees prior to this meeting. Tina commented on the difficulties with the HVAC software, which has been fixed, but will eventually need to be replaced. Tina will contact Bob Sinibaldi to identify companies to consult for estimates.

Next trustees’ meeting is scheduled for 5:30 on October 12, 2016. The meeting was adjourned at 5:15.

Respectfully submitted,
Yvonne Cosgrove, Secretary
