Members Absent: Curt Stock

Staff Present: Jessie Bronk was not present at tonight's meeting.

Others Present: none

Call to Order:  The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. 

Adoption of Agenda: Motion to approve the agenda (Hinderscheit-Harkness) Passed.

Approval of Minutes: Motion to approve the minutes of the 12/03/2012 meeting (Wehrwein-Eyre) Passed.

Chair Report: The Pallet Business' application for a license was approved, per Chris Harkness' report. It had been reported in previous minutes the license application had been denied.

Meeting Dates for 2013: The September meeting has been scheduled for Labor Day. Most of us would be able to make it to a meeting on Labor Day, so we may not need to move the meeting unless we need City employees at the meeting. We discussed moving the date, but we tabled the discussion until closer to September, when we will have a better idea of our agenda.

New Business: Chris brought up Bill Sylvester's proposal of approaching State Senator John Marty about several issues of concern. As an example, Bill mentioned sales tax for small businesses/State Fair Parking in the neighborhood. Bill proposed doing this for the next Legislative session, because he felt it was too late for this year. Chris Harkness proposed that we start now and work toward it gradually throughout the year.  We will keep track of ideas and issues that are brought up at our meetings and invite Senator Marty and Representative Hausman to have a discussion with us in the future and determine the next steps to take.

Adjourn: Motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:41p.m. Passed.

Next Meeting: The next meeting is Monday, February 4, 2012, at Java Train.

Future Meeting Dates (Mondays at 7:00 at Java Train unless noted otherwise): 3/4, 4/1, 4/29, 6/3. 7/1, 8/5, 9/2, 9/30, 11/4, 12/2
