Trustees – Gary Feest noted refinancing was not on the agenda.  Therefore needs to be addressed again in properly noted agenda at next board meeting.  Also, Gary Feest noted his intent to “Take to Table” at the next Board Meeting concerning the tabling of minutes listed above or else the minutes could be lost forever and never published.  It would then appear like those meetings never occurred.
