Reports: Nick reported the balance in the savings account is $1809.25 and the checking account is $279.71. A treasury audit will be conducted in January, 2013 by Bruce King. Julie will also sit in on the audit. The audit needs to be completed before the annual meeting in February.
Bylaws update: We decided to schedule separate meetings to continue revising the bylaws. Jan. 21, Jan 28 and Feb 4, 2013 are the dates. We will meet at Dunkin Donuts on Reynolds Rd.
Julie needs to submit one of our brochures with the Arts Council Grant application, so she will use the brochure designed by Barb and have some copies made.
Julie thanked all of the JC Partners who participated in the Johnson City Holiday Parade on Nov. 29, including Bob Gordon who drove his antique truck with our sign.
JCRP: Julie reported on the progress of each of the projects in the program.
There will be Christmas caroling and groups providing music in the Gazebo at Veterans Park on Dec 20 and Dec 22 at 5PM and 7PM respectfully.
Julie announced that the radio station Cool 100 is planning a cruise-in with oldies music on the 3rd Thursday of each month, May-Sept, 2013 in the municipal parking lot behind Village Hall. We need to reach out to UHS to see if they will help with sponsorship and funding for the events. Also, the merchants need to stay open on those Thursday nights to encourage people to come downtown. Maybe we can arrange a raffle, give-away or scavenger hunt in the downtown area.
Carousel Day will be July 27th, 2013. Julie is applying to the Arts Council for a grant and requesting $1800 to cover half of the music expenses, the tents and some advertising.
The next Johnson City Partners meeting is Jan, 9, 2013 at 7PM. The annual meeting is Feb. 13, 2013 at 7PM.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:40 PM.
