Old Business No applicable old minutes as the May meeting was not held as we did not have a quorum.
New Business Meeting Guests - Erin Latta and Kendra Manley requested funds from the department to obtain "supporter" tank tops and sweatshirts. These would both be for our supporters as well as to sell for fund raising. The proposed tank tops would cost $11.60 and be sold for $20. The proposed sweatshirts would cost $28.90 and be sold for $40. The department would cover the cost of the shirts for the supports - approximately 20 individuals - who consistently help the department at events and fund raisers throughout the year. A motion was made to purchase the shirts (tank tops) for the supporters. The motion was seconded and passed unanimously. A motion was also made to 50 regular hoodies and an undetermined tank tops to sell for fund raising. The motion was seconded and passed unanimously.
Fellin Park Court - Amy Winterrowd presented her proposal for the painting on the court at Fellin Park for both basketball and pickle ball. Amy's proposal ensures an easier maintenance path going forward and will be donating the work for the Maltese Cross that will go at center court. The total project cost is $3545.00. The project should take Amy about 6 days of work but weather may effect the time-frame. The project would start after July 4th. The department is looking for a commitment for labor and paint supplies from the pickle ball group. Nancy Nixon will be taking that request to the pickle ball group and getting back to the Amy with further details. A motion was made to provide the funds necessary to push forward with the project. The motion was seconded and passed unanimously
