1. Approval of minutes of 8 April 2002
The minutes were approved as revised.
2. Question time
There was a question concerning if there were enough members present for a quorum, or if a quorum was required. Nothing could be found in the by-laws requiring a quorum for the committee to meet.
3. Discussion of the FY2003 Budget Plan – Bart Clark
A presentation of the plan was made to the Provost. As the budget stands there is $100,000 of non-recurring funds that will be made recurring dollars. There are liens against these funds. Next year we will get what we had this year. The Library request for a 7% increase of materials budget that was removed. Next year approximately $200,000 will be required for negotiated group raises. There will be no raises for non-union groups unless something had already been promised beforehand. These funds will come out of the operations budget. If possible, the Library would like to put $200,000 into Collections.
There is a small lien from Voyager. In all, Library will need to reallocate approximately $400,000 in next year's budget.
There are many additional expenses for Oak Street that add up to approximately $100,000.
There is a full lien on the general operations budget next year. The Libraries priorities are Oak Street, Voyager, and Collections.
Bart will develop a plan for next year's budget and bring it backto the meeting in a couple of weeks.
4. Guiding Principles for Filing Positions
Beth Sandore and Bill Maher will work on these and bring a final draft to another meeting.
