IV. BILLS AND COMMUNICATIONS
Regarding the schedule of payments, Ms. Brylinski handed out a chart showing the 2015 Grant Applicant Cost Sharing recipients and questioned the Board if the payment to the consultant for the CFA-Priority Project Presentations should be for 50% of the consultant cost or some other amount. Mr. Garigliano stated that the amount should be for 100% of that cost. On a motion by Mr. Guenther, seconded by Mr. Barbuti, the Board unanimously voted in favor to amend the original resolution to reflect that these amounts should include 100% for Priority Project Presentations [Resolution No. 01 – 15]. The schedule of payments was verbally revised to amend that payment amount from $1,250 to $2,500. On a motion made by Mr. Guenther and seconded by Mr. Sykes, the Board voted and unanimously approved the revised schedule of payments.

Chairman Steingart asked the Board and those present if there were any questions or comments. There being none, on a motion by Mr. Barbuti, seconded by Mr. Guenther, the Board voted and the meeting was adjourned at approximately 11:45 A.M.
