           A. Minutes of the June 26, 2012 Work Session and Regular Board Meeting

               BE IT RESOLVED, upon motion by Lisa Rietmann, seconded by Bill Jepsen, which
               carried unanimously, that the items listed above are hereby approved under the
               consent agenda.


Superintendent Report

Livelight Project Update

Mark Mulvihill referenced articles in the East Oregonian, and reported he spoke with Doug Hojem and
to Keith Knowles of Livelight, who is pretty devastated over the situation. Doug agrees that at this
point, the board probably doesn’t want to move forward with a lawsuit and the ensuing attorney fees,
etc., but they must do due diligence to recoup whatever dollars they can. Mark referenced a letter that
was sent to Livelight (included in the board packets), and he went through an email from Doug detailing
options for moving forward. It is still not known if Livelight has assets, or if they will be filing
bankruptcy. Lisa Rietmann agreed that it is not good idea to file a lawsuit right now, and Jerry Archer
said the letter is a good start. Bill Jepsen asked if Mark can find out if Livelight was bonded, and Mark
said he would check with Doug and get a response from him.

The board agreed that everyone was comfortable with waiting for a response to the letter sent to
Livelight and for Doug to review documents. They will talk to the City of Pendleton about Livelight’s
level of bankruptcy, and then evaluate where they are. If they get to the point where the board wants to
file a claim, the board can discuss and evaluate options. Mark said IMESD should not have paid
Livelight half the cost of the project up-front. He said that IMESD will pay any legal fees incurred up to
this point and any costs associated with filing a bankruptcy claim. Joe McElligott said it was a fair
resolution, and the money spent could be considered a cheap education. Mark asked that any calls from
the media about the project be sent to him.

Ashley McCabe reported on the current status of pool, noting that the pool temperature jumped quickly
with the increase in hot weather and attendance has been great. He said that a solar heating system is a
good option in the future, but may not be needed for the rest of this year. Anne Morter said that the
“free” price probably has something to do with the increase in attendance. Lisa asked about gas lines,
and Ashley said the cost would be prohibitive; they won’t get gas to Ione until a company moves in.
There was discussion about a propane conversion discussion, and Mark said he will talk to Eclipse.
Jerry reported that they are in the process of ordering a new sand filter for the pool.

Ashley gave a run down on weight room, saying the Rietmann building is completely empty and things
can be moved into the custodial house anytime. Jerry thanked Ashley for all his work, noting all that he
has done including painting the entire house and removing all the closets.


Financial Summary and Cash Flow

Mark Mulvihill presented the financial report, which is attached to these minutes. He reported on the
preliminary ending fund balance, and noted that the pool continues to be over budget. Mark said it is a
healthy ending fund balance, and there has been growth. Mark said that the bond has given them
flexibility, and the foundation money is huge and helps protect and support the general fund. Ione is
well positioned with negotiated contracts and outside resources, and they have reason to be optimistic in
12-13 biennium, with all sorts of creative solutions for Ione as the years wear on. Mark also noted that
they budgeted for decreased enrollment.


There was no Old Business to come before the board.
