Trustee Meeting January 2017
The final actual Sources & Uses versus the 2016 Budget was reviewed. Expenses came in below expectations partly as a result of nonrecurring staffing changes. Net Ordinary Income was positive at $5,342.00. The final 2017 Budget was presented and reviewed. Pledges for 2017 declined 12% from 2016. Chris King reported that the decline was mainly due to members moving from the area and deaths. Use of Investments to support the budget could be $75,819, up substantially from $43,219 in 2016. We had 13 new members in 2016, Including the confirmation class.
The Board expressed thanks to our Budget Chair, Bill MacLachlan, for his dedication to our church and his many hours of work to produce the Budget for 2017. A job well done by Bill and his Budget Committee (Carl Ericson and Ernie Rogers).
Steve Downs reported that Cape Light Compact has completed updating our electric fixtures & bulbs. The new Solar system is installed per My Generation Energy. We are waiting for Eversource to change out our electric meter. Once completed, the system will be turned on and be operational. A fence will be installed around the project area. Two dumpsters are now located in the kitchen area parking lot. One is identified for recyclables only (cardboard, cleaned plastic bottles, cleaned cans, paper, etc.) and the other for non-recyclables only (plastic bags, food and liquid soiled cups , plates, napkins and miscellaneous trash).
The Board wishes everyone a healthy and happy New Year.
