The Board of Directors of the Downtown Neighborhood Association met on Thursday, December 10, at the Bayfront Tower condominium building. A brief buisiness meeting was held at 7 p.m., prior to adjournment for the annual board Christmas party. Present were board members Tim Baker, Marilyn Olsen, Allan Brockway, Dick Freeburg, Marlys Meckler, Joe Pugliano, Peter Belmont,
John Harte and Sydni Shollenberger. Absent were Marie Stirling, Gene Ormond and Mike Johnson.
Minutes of the previous meeting approved as posted.
Allan Brockway presented the November Treasurer’s Report which was also posted online.
A discussion was held about the possible need for the DNA board to purchase insurance. Two types were discussed: officers and directors insurance, which would indemnify board members against personal lawsuits related to board actions; and liability insurance for DNA events. No action was taken. Several board members will look into aspects of this question.
Prior to adjourning, the board thanked outgoing members John Harte, Dick Freeburg and Gene Ormond. They all worked hard on the board and the association will miss them.
Timothy J. Baker, Secretary
Downtown Neighborhood Association
