Present: Sylvester, Cynthia, Serene, Catty, Richard, Paul (minutes, facilitator)
Liam was here for his first meeting.
(Richard, Hannah, Cynthia) Member review of Maranda for total non-performance of labor.
Tabled because it's not clear if Maranda knew about the member review.
Catty: I've done 16 labor hours cleaning up #109. I bought a new mirror and spent $70 on cleaning supplies for the unit. When I went in it was gross and disgusting. Tesa is moving in furniture. Catty would like to know if a discount could be applied to next month's rent for her and her roommate.
POI: We haven't granted rent abatements for rent in the past.
POI: She's maxed out her labor credit making the place livable. This seems like an unusual circumstance. Perhaps the labor that surpassed the cap can be applied to a credit.
POI: What period are you claiming was unlivable?
Catty: He moved out on the 7th. I moved in the 9th. It took me a week to not have to take showers in the commons. Maybe a week or a week and a half?
POI: Other people have helped out on the unit as well, and it still needs to be painted.
Sylvester: AC and my health. My roommate is keeping the unit too cold. It's so cold I have to cough and it hurts. I've asked my roommate multiple times to not turn it down so hard and he refuses to meet me halfway.
Serene: I would like to develop some soil somewhere. Lots of plants could benefit because they're all containerized and slowly leaking nutrients and organic matter. Anyone at the co-op could use it.
POI from Labor Czar: Sounds like a discussion with grounds.
Serene: He hasn't really been responsive.
POI from Labor Czar: I would keep trying with grounds. I'm hesitant to add extra grounds labor.
POI: Can we ad-hoc approve a few hours for a special project?
Labor Czar: Sure. What space would you need?
Serene: Just one of the soil beds by the laundry room. It'll be covered so no one needs to worry about it.
Sylvester: I'd like to improve the courtyard by working on the tree. I want an obvious before-and-after picture.
Labor Czar: I know people have been working in #109. Please log your work hours to make sure everyone gets credit - especially since it's double-credit.
