Insurance: Our insurance broker feels that the Community Centre is under-insured. At present, the building is insured for $28,302 and it was suggested that the replacement cost would be closer to $174,000. After much discussion, it was suggested that we increase our coverage to $100,000. The motion was made by Jack Seatter and seconded by Ken Meagher. Approved. Rick Nolk will notify Eric McLay of this decision and the increase in coverage will be effective immediately.

Done – May 23/08
