Meeting was called to address two issues.
Presented to congregation by Jim Johnson
Council has voted to contract Joe Foryan to be responsible for the Musical needs of the congregation and to be responsible for all the duties associated with the church office. Council has agreed to a contract price of $750 per week payable every two (2) weeks to begin 01/04/18 pending approval by the congregation. A motion was made by Dave Wallen to accept the proposal and was seconded by Diane Bursey. Motion was carried unanimously.
Jim Johnson explained to the congregation hat the recent hurricane had done over $100,000.00 in damages to our Church and that due to our insurance coverage we had a deductible of $80,000.
It was proposed by the council that we use the $17,000 that we had planned to pay down our mortgage as a portion of our deductible. Larry Dodge asked if it was going to cost us more interest on our mortgage if we did not pay the $17,000.00. on the mortgage.
It was explained that the $17,000.00 was earmarked as an “extra payment” on the mortgage and went directly to the principal.
Motion was made by Mark Jacobetz to accept the proposal and was seconded by Marion Larson. Motion passed unanimously.
Motion to adjourn was made by Diane Bursey and seconded by Mike Mohr. Motion carried unanimously.
Meeting adjourned – 11:25 am
