Germantown Hills Branch Library

Metamora, IL


          The Tuesday, September 6, 2011 meeting of the IPDPL Board of Trustees met at 4:00pm at the Germantown Hills Branch Library in Metamora, IL.  Those present included Director Fredericksen, trustees Buhr, Kramer, Pugh, Rush, Weddle and Zoss; and also visitors Clark and Pam Hopkins.

          Pugh made a motion, seconded by Kramer, to approve the Aug. 2, 2011 meeting minutes, and the motion passed.  Kramer also moved to approve the July 27, 2011 minutes; Pugh seconded and the motion passed.



    A.  Germantown Hills site:  Fred Schlipf had completed a revision of the building program for Germantown Hills; the plan calls for a 10,500 sq. ft. building, which will meet minimum state standards for the Germantown Hills population.  He included the RFQ; the Board will examine both the RFQ and building program and notify Fredericksen if we see any needed changes before they are sent to architects.  He will go ahead and send those out to architects.  In order to give the architects adequate time to respond, Buhr made a motion that we move our regular October Board meeting to Oct. 11 instead of the 4th; then we can view the RFQ responses.  Pugh seconded the motion and it passed.

    B.  Spring Bay Branch porch:  Paul Kouri sent drawings of vestibule and outside changes for the porch, to Steve Schierer, who will view them and come up with estimates for the job.  More info will be available next month.

    C.  Levy Ordinance 11-7:  Pugh made a motion to approve this levy ordinance; Buhr seconded and it passed.

    D.  Per capita grant:  The Board went through the checklist of the governance and administration review.


The Policy Review was tabled.


          Kramer moved to pay the bills and requisitions; Zoss seconded the move and it passed.   Adjournment was at 5:07pm.  The next regular meeting will be Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 4:00pm at the Metamora Branch Library in Metamora, IL.
