SAN MIGUEL COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT update on
activities for January 2015
by District Interim Manager, Darrell Gentry
Board Meeting Actions
The January CSD Regular Board meeting was a full agenda that involved declaring some District equipment as surplus property and authorizing a public auction for sale of the items. Board members approved new purchasing policies and procedures for future expenditures and bidding.
Board also discussed a proposal for a $100.00 monthly stipend for the Board members. A number of San Miguel community residents spoke about how the Board members should be doing their work as volunteers and not take a stipend. Some speakers talked about importance of tightly controlling costs and expenses, even for the proposed per meeting stipend.
After lengthy discussion, the Board decided to not take a stipend and continue the present practice of no stipend pay.
