Consent Agenda


Newly proposed agenda items appear in the consent agenda. Any member present at the meeting may pull an item out of the consent agenda for discussion, at which point it goes under "New Business". If nobody objects to the solutions presented by the consent agenda, everything in the consent agenda passes by consensus. Items that have more than one proposed solution should be moved to the "New Business" section.

Any member may edit this wiki page and place an item on the agenda. However, discussion of agenda items should be done via Slack. The cut-off time for addition to or revision of the consent agenda items is 48 hours prior to the meeting. Please note, agenda items (Consent, New, or Old) that request spending $250 or more must include a section on "Relevance to our tax exempt purpose".

NB1 Designation of Red / Yellow / Green Tools (Mark R Millsap)

Problem: None of the tools in either makerspace are labeled, painted, etched, or otherwise visually identified as to which category of tool designation they belong to.  This is leading to uncertainty as to application of rules to tool usage.  All tools need to be visually painted and/or labeled as to category of tool they belong to; red, yellow or green.

Solution:  Label each and every tool as to category of red, yellow or green tool.

Relevance to our tax exempt status:  None

Proposed Motion:  I motion that the Board require room stewards (or facility manager if no room steward exists) to paint or label each and every tool as to which category of tool it belongs to before Jan 1st 2019.  

Motion pass with all in favor.
