DRBC October 2017 Meeting minutes
DRBC October 2017 meeting minutes
Members present: Chuck, Michael, Dan, Brian, Andy
Meeting called to order at 6:08
Secretary’s report: There is a clarification from the September meeting. When we were talking about protected bike lanes for next year we were thinking of real PBLs (that is, on streets with car traffic) Chuck moved and Dan seconded to approve the minutes as clarified.
Treasurers report: we have $5344.48
Protected bike lanes: Michael met with a company that makes barriers. They come in various lengths and can be removed for snowplowing. We then discussed various streets that would be good candidates for a PBL. Perhaps a street off of the closed street. We discussed streets including but not limited to La Crosse street, Clinton, a Weigent park loop and the streets near the Bud Hendickson trail. We decided to do some more research and come back next month with some suggestions.
Bike racks – They are now in our storage unit
We then discussed membership. We haven’t tried to recruit members, and Andy does not want to deal with keeping track of who has paid and when their membership ends. We discussed having “patrons” or “supporters”. We decided that there will be open enrollment in January only. Anyone who wants to be a member will have to get a hold of a board member and join then.
For the purposes of next years elections we will have a special meeting on November 15 at 6PM. Probably in the King Street Kitchen meeting room.
(addendum – I asked for the room to be reserved)
Meeting adjourned at 6:58
