 +
 +
 +Richard - Would like to reverse half of the decision made last week, alright with Andy getting compensation for electricity,​ would like to reimburse Carey'​s deposit. Private debt is different than co-op debt, we can't say in a lease that we can with hold money from someone'​s deposit as a house legally.\\ ​
 +Paul - so the proposal is to reimburse Carey'​s deposit?​\\ ​
 +Richard - correct\\ ​
 +Andy - wouldn'​t want to have to cover private debt with the house\\ ​
 +Richard - its a bad situation\\ ​
 +Corey - this could be habit forming\\ ​
 +Richard - could review him for it\\ 
 +Cynthia - sounds like something the two room mates should work out\\ 
 +Jack - does carey need that much electricity?​ there'​s got to be a way he can pay it, it's only fifty dollars\\ ​
 +Cynthia - i don't think it's right to take it out of his deposit, but he needs to come to some sort of conclusion as to what he wants to do, and pay it, or not live here.
 +
 +
 +Vote - Unanimous consensus, Carey'​s deposit is reimbursed

 (Richard) Resident members must keep electricity service active for their respective units. Roommates of a unit must agree upon a specific splitting of monthly electricity costs or otherwise divide the costs equally amongst themselves. A member may bring a complaint of a roommate'​s nonpayment to a house meeting and request (1) immediate compensation of the unpaid share directly from the house and (2) a transfer of the debt to the house. All new contracts signed must include this requirement (contract portion to be word-smithed by legal counsel?). (Richard) Resident members must keep electricity service active for their respective units.

 +Corey - Merging sweeping and moping to keep things in the same area. \\ Cynthia - so we are gonna split this up, i thought it already was? \\ Paul - just re-splitting them to make further sense of the assigned labor \\ Richard - it seems like the mess making potential is still greater on the A side, so maybe we could move the line over to the lamp (extend b's territory to half of the living room) \\ Corey - won't really matter ​ \\ Richard - your right. \\ Meg - who takes out the pantry recycling? \\ Corey - will add 'take out recycling and trash in commons'​ to commons clean b \\ Friendly amendment is accepted

 +Andy - Carey has written me up for two no shows, one was for not fixing the toilet in the commons, I can't force people to do maintenance as coordinator without shackles. The other was for not having access to tools, they are all accessible to members of maintenance,​ I understand others may want access, but its pretty easy to contact someone on the team. I find both no shows ridiculous.
 +
 +
 +Vote - Consensus, Andy's no shows are struck down.

To cover Fixer and future labor positions compensation must be a general line item in the budget.
 +
 +
 +Andy - right now, the fixer position is tied to the 106 bedroom, and since there is talk of removing the 106 bedroom, we should re-define fixer as to disassociate it from 106, so that we can keep that position if and when the room is no longer leased. \\ Corey - Currently the fixer can be compensated for hours from 5-10, should the line item be the max or min? \\ Andy - Ryan currently has it listed as max \\ Richard - friendly amendment, can we make this minimum maximum five hours, so that we are just budgeted for five hours, rather than up to ten.  \\ Andy - I'm cool with that, he already budgets for five percent surplus in any case \\ Donny - That might be getting too detailed, treasurer should do his job, we shouldn'​t do so much at the meeting. \\ Richard - he will throw it back at the meeting anyhow \\ Andy - he can show us the charts with 5, and up to ten, \\ Jack - was it ever really decided the two were associated? \\ Donny - it was to solve some past issues

 +
 +Andy - there'​s been some energy behind making the commons the commons, would like to simply start by not signing any more leases on the unit, to avoid having anyone kicked out. \\ Paul - what happens when there is not a room available \\ Andy - he would asked to move out, or ask for an extension \\ Richard - when does your lease end \\ Tim - the end of June \\ Meg - shouldn'​t it be a priority to find Tim a unit over new members? \\ Andy - it is \\ Cynthia - we do want to make the commons commons, but if we can't find a spot for him, he will will have to stay, and nobody will move. \\ Jack - So the rent will raise even more? \\ Andy - yes \\ Richard - give Tim the option of an extra month after current lease without having to ask house. \\ Corey - IF at the end of Tim's contract, there isn't a place to move into, we give Tim the first availability. \\ meg - regarding the amendments, finding a room mate is more difficult than that. No offense Tim. and if rent is to go up, we should maybe see a long term income sheet. \\ Andy - we have a long term plan to eliminate the fixer position by July, right now this is just the next phase of freeing up the commons. in regards to the amendments, sign no additional contracts, allow Tim another month after contract to find another unit, or another place to live.  \\ Richard -  just a one month extension permitted by the house, without intention \\ Paul - just make it so that he wouldn'​t have to move out if a room doesn'​t open up  \\ Richard - rejects \\ amendment is accepted ​ \\ Donny - the house doesn'​t owe anyone an extension to anyone, and reserves the right to move people out of and into other units. \\ Tim - wouldn'​t want to be rushed into living with a room mate that I am less than comfortable with

 +Andy - I would like to paint the exterior of the coop (courtyard, and outside walls) the outside should stay yellow, courtyard has had suggestions for terra cotta colors. \\ Richard - exterior should be purple \\ turquoise \\ meg - green gutters ​

 + 
 + 
 +Meg - I have been trying to keep track of people doing their courtyard clean, and it's hard to know if someone has done the courtyard clean without better definitions. It should be one person doing it. \\ Richard - We should divide territory, but technically both people are supposed to sweep up all of it. It should also cover the causeway \\ Meg - meanwhile this week it remains undefined \\ Richard - i will no show people \\ Donny - this is a discussion \\ meg - can't we just resolve this? say east west north south? \\ Corey - we split it north half and south half \\ Gatlin - we should only vote on things in the agenda, so people know how a meeting works, and we should think about relaxing things ​ \\ Donny - i don't think we want to pass a vague labor description,​ but we can fix up a proposal for next time \\ Richard - not sure 106 door divides courtyard in half \\ meg - does it include upstairs? \\ Richard - it should \\ Paul - should they clean bird bath \\ Richard - that is a part of grounds 
 + 
 + 
 +Richard - we should not consolidate as I need more tasks for people to do. \\ meg - while taking to from Sasona, he told me Hannah (of the south) is the minute taker for the meetings of the CHEA board, and maybe we can use our labor for that  \\ Donny - we can't pass this as it is not specific

 + 
 + 
 +Meg - went to a NASCO meeting, they thought it was weird to have someone living in the commons, as the commons should be more equally shared and not vague. Not much space for events. \\ Donny - we can discuss this, but we don't really have to decide anything here. I agree though, commons should be commons, and we will have more space with more walls being knocked down. \\ Andy - I guess, is the proposal to move Tim into the first unit available (assuming the other tenant is down to room with him) \\ Richard - would Carey be suitable? \\ Tim - still thinking about it
