11. NEW BUSINESS

KARYN AND SEAN INDICATED THAT THEY CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE BIAS BUT THAT THEIR INDIVIDUAL WORKLOADS WERE SUCH THAT SOME OF THE SERVICES TO THE BIAS WOULD HAVE TO BE CUT. THESE CUTS WERE ALSO SUPPORTED IN THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY PUT TOGETHER BY A CONSULTANT HIRED BY COUNCIL. AND APPROVED BY COUNCIL.


CONSIDERABLE DISCUSSION THEN ENSUED AND WE MADE IT CLEAR THAT WE FELT THAT THE TOWN SHOULD CONTINUE AND EXPAND THEIR HELP FOR THE BIAS. STEVE INDICATED THAT THE  PROPOSED CUTS WILL RESULT IN CUTS IN EVENTS AND PROGRAMS AS THESE DOLLARS WOULD HAVE TO BE MOVED INTO OPERATING COSTS. PRINTING COSTS WOULD GO UP ASTRONOMICALLY. SEAN INDICATED THAT THE TOWNS COST TO PRINT AN 8 ½ X 11 BLACK AND WHITE PAGE WAS $.08 AND A COLOUR WAS $.10. STEVE DID A QUICK CALL OUT TO LOCAL PRINTERS IN SUTTON AND KESWICK AND WAS QUOTED FROM $35 PER PAGE B&W TO $.75 FOR COLOR.


STEVE ASKED IF THE TOWN WOULD CONSIDER STILL DOING THE PRINTING AND THE BIAS WOULD PAY THEM FOR IT. SEAN INDICATED THAT THERE WOULD STILL BE A COST FACTOR. STEVE SAID SO UPCHARGE US A COUPLE OF CENTS PER PAGE TO COVER THE COST FACTOR. THE BIAS WOULD STILL BE SAVING A LOT OF MONEY. SEAN ADVISED THAT THEY WOULD LOOK INTO THIS.


JOHN FURTHER INDICATED HIS COMPLETE FRUSTRATION WITH THE TOWN IN REDUCING THEIR SUPPORT. HE SAID THAT THE BIAS ARE THE HEART OF THE BUSINESS COMMUNITIES AND THEY CONTRIBUTE TO THE WELL BEING OF THE COMMUNITIES OVER ALL NOT JUST THE BUSINESSES. HE INDICATED THAT HE FELT THE NEED TO RESIGN FROM THE BOARD SO THAT HE COULD ADVOCATE FOR THE BIAS AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS WITHOUT NEGATIVELY AFFECTING THEM.


JOHN ALSO EXPRESSED THAT IT WAS UNCONSCIONABLE THAT THE TOWN WOULD DRAFT ITS ECD/BIA PLAN WITHOUT EVEN TALKING TO US.

KARYN INDICATED THAT IT WAS A BUDGET DECISION.


FRANK INDICATED THAT HE WAS INTERVIEWED AS WELL AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SUTTON BIA AND THAT DAN FELLINI WAS INTERVIEWED AS REPRESENTIVE OF KESWICK. NO ONE SPOKE TO US.
