Metamora Headquarters, Metamora, IL

          A special meeting of the IPDPL Board of Trustees convened at Metamora, IL on July 27, 2011 at 4:00pm.  Present were Director Fredericksen, trustees Pugh, Kramer, Rush, Weddle, and Zoss.  Absent:  Buhr.   Visitors included Ed Barry of the Farnsworth Group, Gregory K. Kerr of Ruck Pate Architecture, and Paul Kouri of PSI Dewberry.

Action Items:
1.     Fredericksen received communication from Fred Schlipf that the Board had pursued improper procedures in beginning the process of reviewing and hiring architects.  He stated that we will need to create a reduced version of the building program.  Subsequently, he will need to work with the Board to draw up a revised building program  and a bid document meeting AIA standards.  We will need to work with him at our next special meeting.   Pugh made a motion to hire Schlipf again for this purpose; Weddle seconded and the motion passed.  Grant will pursue Schlipf's attendance at our next special meeting.
2.      Different options are available for the porch at Spring Bay; Kouri enlarged on the possibilities.  Kramer made a motion to go Plan B which will place a small vestibule at the entrance and redo porch access.  Pugh seconded the motion and it passed.

The special meeting was adjourned at 5:05pm.
