1. Call to Order: Stephanie Cunningham called the meeting to order at 1133 hours
2. Introductions were made by all in attendance.
3. Stephanie Cunningham gave all members a chance to review the January minutes. She asked if anyone had any amendments they wished to have made for the January minutes. With no amendments recommended, Rick Hughes made a motion to approve the minutes as written. Sonya Ware-Meguiar seconded the motion, and Stephanie Cunningham called for a vote. All members voted in favor, with none opposed.
4. Jim Hoeing provided the coordinator’s report. He stated the January income was $11,458.53. He further stated the website is back up and running. Members were asked to submit any events they wished to have added to the website calendar. Jim Hoeing attended the Johnson County Board of Commissioners meeting on February 8th, 2016 and the Johnson County Council meeting on the same date. Both groups were presented Drug Free Johnson County’s recommendations for 2016 funding. Both approved the funding appropriations, and the Johnson County Commissioners approved the contracts. Checks may be mailed as soon as ICJI approves the funding report. This report was submitted February 10th, 2016. The year two update to the Comprehensive Plan has also been submitted. The next update will be due January 31st, 2017, along with a new Comprehensive Plan. The fourth quarter report was also submitted to ICJI.
5. The board reviewed the by-laws, and discussed any possible revisions. The board recommended two revisions to the by-laws. The first revision changes the maximum number of members from 24 to 25 (Article III Section 1). This would eliminate the possibility of any tie votes. The second recommendation was to change the mission statement (Article II). The board wanted to include “youth” in the statement. Jim Hoeing will make the recommended changes to the by-laws, and place them on the agenda for review at the March meeting.
