Budget Review:

All budget request amounts remain the same as discussed at our 11/6 meeting. The only increase/change being made at this time is to our advertising line item. We previously discussed $400.00 and members remain in agreement with this amount.

Due to the increase in our community events, the CFO would like a list of events – this will be done during our December meeting, but Mrs. Tosti just wanted to make note that this conversation took place.

Office supplies are not typically purchased, but Mrs. Tosti would like to ensure we utilize this line item in 2024. Some items we will need include scissors, paper, notebooks, tape/tape dispensers, duct tape, pens, markers, glue dots/command strips, raffle tickets, an organizer for all items purchased. These items are needed for the Community Center.

Mr. Carovillano made a motion to approve the budget discussions and increases at our next meeting, seconded by Mrs. Richardson.
