Agenda Item 4

Josh reads member review. There is lots of complaints on both sides, wants to get both peoples sides. Cleanliness issue has persisted. Issues with couch persisted. Wanted to separate eske into Jills unit. Aaron talked to nasco about his side. Aaron took his own dishes into room, Eske didn’t like some behaviors.

Bernard says people should stop going to nasco about problems. Aaron seems to be pushing people out that he doesn’t like. There
Josh wanted to add that Aaron had thought he was getting a whole unit
Kate: asks for clarification on pans issue. Eske says she used some pans from the commons because Aaron put all his pans in room.
Aaron didn’t appreciate cleanliness and burning pan and using stuff and eating food. Has no problems with roomates normally.
Cayla says that nasco can only really help with maintanece maybe. All they can do is kick everybody out, they won’t be much help. Can go to the board for better response.
Bernard says when you move in, you shouldn’t take advantage of others stuff. Went through that.
Kate says that with OCD, this kind of conflict may come up again. Asks if Aaron is okay with another roomate. Should address what would happen is someone else were to move in.
Aaron says he is fine with another roomate, just has issues with eskes behavior. Had continuous issues he tried to solve reasonably.
Josh says we can take OCD stuff into consideration
Russ: says we should have handled stuff better like not telling people about animals. People should meet first. People used to talk to each other before moving in together. People should work to meet people before they move in
Cayla says people have busy schedules that don’t always align.
Russ: we need to have broader conversation about having people meet before moving in.
Cory: its been 45 minute. We need to make a decision about how to handle member review
Philip: some people might not be okay with dogs
Leah: trys to get people to meet beforehand. Will work on dog issues.
Eske: Aaron changes his boundaries about behavior. Will say they can drink water then later say they can’t. Felt intimidated.

Russ says he feels contract was not violated.
Eske responds that they felt intimidated.
Kate: doesn’t thinks pans are a violation
Logan this is clash of personalities. They just don’t get along.
Bernard: its not a persons responsibility to let other people eat your food or use your stuff. There is no violations and we’ve been here an hour.

Cayla: people minds are made up
Kate reads harassment policy.
