Audit Extension – Lauri Dannemiller & Jeff Leniger
Ms. Dannemiller shared that the District is requesting an extension for completion of the 2019 budget. Re-allocation of key financial staff to daily tasks and furloughs has necessitated the request. On-site field work by the auditors originally scheduled for May has been rescheduled to July. The State office expects most filers to need an extension so all Districts can request the extension electronically and without penalty. No motion is necessary; President Glenn will need to sign the request form.
Outgoing President Comments – Lauri Dannemiller & Jeff Glenn
Ms. Dannemiller thanked President Glenn for his leadership and his balanced approach to representation, and the sheer volume of accomplishments that have happened during his time on the Board. He will be greatly missed.
President Glenn remarked this has been such a rich experience. A lot has changed during his 12 years on the Board, and in particular the past few years and especially the past few months. He is grateful to the current Board for their service and passion and engagement and has confidence in their guidance to keep the District going strong.
