The following reports were submitted to the Board:

Old Business:
Attorney McGuire has asked that we have a special meeting on July 12 with him in attendance so he can give us information and answer questions on recent medical marijuana legislation and what the Board should consider.  Golemboski encouraged the Board members to check out the CML June 4th newsletter for more information.

Colerick reported that City of Brush uses a different combination of the Bio-Mist for mosquito spraying and it is not as expensive.  Colerick will discuss if further with City of Brush personnel.

New Business:
The list of bills for June 21, 2010 were presented.  Wahlert moved with Smith seconding to pay the bills in the usual manner.  Roll call vote was taken with all present voting yes, motion carried 5-0.

Colerick presented the website that he had started for the Town.  He explained that it was easily developed and more of what could be done with the site.

Golemboski discussed the I-tron invoice received for hardware and software maintenance with the Board.  The maintenance for one year is $1167.36, which is expensive given that new software cost $1750 and we have never received an update in the entire time we were under free maintenance.  Also the hardware model that we have is no longer made and any upgrades would require the newer model FC300 that costs $2150 for the two items we have.  The Board agreed that the maintenance contract was not worth it and authorized Golemboski to send a letter giving I-tron the required 90 days notice to get out of the contract.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:40 p.m.
