Public Comment:


Edith Sloan and Brenda Vescovi were present.


Ms. Sloan has questions regarding the fee schedule and use/organization of the Commons/Senior Center. Ms. Sloan has a writing practice group that has been using the facility.  She checked with the director(Ms. Vecovi) and was told they had to be done by 1:00 but there was a time when they ran over a little and were told to leave that they doors had to be locked. She would like to work something out and have a little flexibility.  Ms. Vescovi said that she doesn’t have a problem with them being there but asked the Commissioners if they (the workers) have to stay to lock up?  The Commissioners said that no they do not have to stay but there is a schedule done here at the Clerk & Recorders Office and they have to set up a time and fill out papaerwork for every time there is a meeting, no matter who it is.  That way they know that they have to be out by a certain time if there is another meeting/event scheduled.
