  (5) Public Comments
  (6) President’s Report – Phillip Givens
          A. ByLaws Meeting – when and who should be involved. Decided the
             full Board will meet an hour before next meeting and the entire Board
             should be involved. Motion to have Rhonda come up with proposed
             changes and present to the Board.
          B. Township Budget - 29 cents was original proposed tax rate. Now it is
             32.8. I am opposed to tax rate because it is not what was proposed
             and with this economy it should not be raised or various luxury items
             should be postponed. There was a consensus among the Villages to
             oppose. Anthony talks about the tax rate and assessment. He says it’s
             really a .8 increase from last year. Tom Campbell discusses meeting
             that we requested more sheriffs. With that every 1.1 million increase
             in the budget is a penny on the tax rate. I agree it would be great to
             get it down to 30 cents. The assessor has said we will not get the
             assessment we want. The Oakridge and Shenandoah line items will be
             cut. They have been scrubbing the budget. They have delayed 1.5
             million. The July meeting it came out that we wanted more Sherriff’s
             coverage. Discussion on different line items and some opinions of the
             Board and residents. We will have 82 new patrolmen instead of 55.
  (7) Treasurer’s Report – Angela Francis
          A. Interest income .93.
          B. Deposits of $88 for Astros tickets.
          C. Wrote checks for 260.43.
