Treasurer’s Report

· The Treasurer’s report through the end of March was reviewed. Expenditures to present are approximately $150,000.

· We are currently at about 72% of the budget below the 80% of where we should be.

· Line-item review:

o Utilities are low due to new roof, new HVAC system plus new solar system.

o Peter’s salary not reflected in the custodial line, only supplies. The lowering of this line will be reflected in the new budget.

o Office supplies are purchased once a year which will be coming up soon.

Chairman’s Report- no formal report

Old Business

o Matt from ACT has updated all the computers.

· ARPA Grant

o The first ARPA grant for $2000 was received and was used to purchase a golf cart which is arriving at the library on 4/20/2022. It can be used in the 4th of July parade, to bring supplies to different buildings, etc. The amount of the ARPA grant is based on population.

 

New Business

o The second ARPA grant will be $500 coming in May. This grant will probably go to the STEAM program maybe robotics for the children.

· Touch-a-Truck event will be coming in May. There will be a Humm V, front end loaders, maybe a helicopter through the National Guard. Beth will contact Mosher for more machinery and big trucks.
