Director Report:
I. Media Center Programming:
● The community center is closed to everyone due to a lack of cleaning supplies.
● Initially, we kept programming open. Then, it closed as the COVID situation continued.
Currently, we do not know if we will be able to have any programming until at least
August. Whatever we decide to do it could go with what the school decided to do. If the
school opens up in August, then we may be able to start programming at that point.
● Other surrounding Parks and Rec communities have been saying that they do not know
when they will open up their programming. They are pretty sure they are canceling
● If we cancel programming, Jen still has everything planned through the end of September
if we are to begin again.
○ Initiating refunds would not be overwhelmingly costly
○ With the few amounts of people who signed up for programs, Jen could possibly
reach out and ask if they would like credit for future programming or cash.
● Ryan motions to cancel programming indefinitely, Angela Seconds. All ayes.
II. City Council Update Subjects
III. Possible Purchasing for Future Precautions
● Hand sanitizer stations all around the Community Center, Foot opener for a door, Wipes
that people could use to wipe off door handles if they want.
● We talked about the possibility of going into a contract with cleaning/sanitization
