Topic: Increase in Strata fees to cover the costs of roof repair (Tricia Carpenter)

Background: This is up for decision tonight, but Ralph suggested that we delay the vote until next month
out of courtesy to the Ellisons (sons of the recently deceased Carol Ellison, owner of Unit #17) until they
have been notified and consulted about the changes. Carollyne C. recommended that we pass the motion in
principle with the proviso that the Ellisons must be contacted and sent a letter explaining the situation.
 (Dec 19/07 update: Ellisons have been invited to our Jan 4th community meeting @ 7:30pm)

Decision: Passed with all green and one yellow card.

Announcements:
-      Meals (Nancy Bean) – the new "tickets-for-community meals" system is off to a good start. Most
people are remembering to bring either money or tickets to pay for community meals. We hope the system
will be revenue neutral, subject to rounding the meals to even-dollar amounts
         -- there will be bi-weekly meals from a variety of local restaurants in the new year – times to be
arranged in January.

- Storage (Susan McFee) – Susan checked the parkade and lower atriums for unsafe storage and has
spoken to a number of residents with problem areas. The process for addressing these areas will be
followed (i.e. written notification, time limit given, offers to help donate stuff, photos of remaining unsafe
areas shall be posted at next community meeting...etc.)

- New Lockers (Alan Carpenter) There are three new lockers available in the parkade and the monthly
rental for these units will pay for the renovations in the workshop, then into the general revenue fund.

- Music Concerts – (Susan Collerman) The group Chicks with Sticks have been very active in Nov. and
Dec. Check Susan’s e-mails for concerts.

- A family in Ann Arbor, Michigan is very interested in WindSong and will be in the Lower Mainland
on Jan. 29. Maureen will let them know about several community activities planned for the end of the year,
and make sure they know they are welcome to attend.

- We raised $285 for World Vision from Russell’s dinner. Carollyne will be sending the contribution to
them on Dec. 10.

-   Carollyne volunteered to organize the annual Christmas dinner.

- Carollyne and Howard will be co-leading the Capital Fund Prioritization process on December 29,
Saturday at 1-5ish...Discussion about whether social projects, such as personal development, community
spirit, or
empathic communication type workshops could be included on the list.
It was determined that if people wish to propose these kinds of projects, we will discover how they rank
relative to material projects.

Agenda Item: CCS -- raising the rate per hour for WindSong residents who choose the pay option instead
of work hours per month for their community contribution.

Background: We propose raising the per hour amount of the CCS payment option because of the rising
costs of hiring out community cleaning and maintenance work. The fees will be $15/hr. beginning February
1, 2008. This fee will be reviewed in July 2008.

Decision: Passed with all green cards
