Thrifty Tails ‘n’ Paws lease has already expired and will be amended to expire December 31, 2013. The language in our lease agreements needs to be updated to include an escalator clause. The amenities that have been added to the Old Gregg School in the recent past should be outlined for tenants.  A motion was made by Douglas Bierly and seconded by Joel Myers to raise the OGS tenants' rent by 5% effective January 1, 2014. The vote was unanimous.

A motion was made by Douglas Bierly and seconded by Joel Myers to increase the fees charged for occasional use of the OGS facilities in accordance with a fee schedule proposed by Robin Bastress. Vote was unanimous.

 Communication between the Board of Supervisors and the OGS Advisory committee was discussed and it was suggested that in addition to Mr. Bierly, that other members of the Board of Supervisor attend OGS Advisory Committee meetings on a quarterly basis to discuss center issues and needs.
