it was permissible to forward an electronic copy of the bank statement to the accountant’s 

office.  

 

3. The staff report was reviewed.  The crime statistics were reviewed.   There were 

questions regarding 48 car break ins over 7 weeks, 36 of these were in Como Park.   Last 

spring SPPD sent undercover officers to the pavilion area, this seemed 

to lower the number of thefts, possibly this could happen again.

overarching plan that would include 5 to 8 goals and accompanying activities.
