VII. Board Discussion

Phil Draper—I would like to take $20,000 from the Kaiser grant to pay the Dec. 31st tax bill, to be replaced by revenue from the Friends of CIL.

Chuck Cole—We're going in the hole to the amount of $7,000 monthly plus the existing $41,000 deficit?

Phil Draper—$7,000 for this month. Monthly deficit will be reduced to about $1500 by the Kaiser grant.

Chuck Cole—What is the price of delay? What will happen and how soon?

Phil Draper—We will be fined for each month we don't pay the IRS. Fine is 10% or 2,000 a month.

Debby Kaplan—The liability in this case is with the Board at any time funds are transferred. Liable for mismanagement & waste of corporate finances.

Chuck Cole—Who has the effective lien on our resources?

Judy Heumann—The Feds and the state

Mary Jane Owen—Who can put us out of business fastest?

Debby Kaplan—The IRS.

Don Galloway—Is there any way to look at the money we have control over and cut back somewhere?

Phil Draper—Our discretionary funds are our services money.

Judy Heumann—One thing to look at immediately is how the number of part-time staff is affecting us; the amount of work time lost by having so many part-time staff. Do we need all this staff? Could we save money and get more done?

Debby Kaplan—We need a list of which people are attatched to funding and which not; who can be laid off; what people could go full-time without having SSI benefits. Is there any plan we can make to pay the IRS in installments?

Bill McGregor—I can call and find out.

Debby Kaplan—Appoint Chuck Cole and Hale Zukas to the Budget and Finance Task Group.

Chuck Cole moved that the Budget and Finance Task Group meet with the staff to produce a budget by April 15, 1976. Jan McEwen seconded. Motion carried.

Chuck Cole appointed Vice-Chairperson. Will chair March 29 regular Board meeting.
