Hall update - ownership, work required, accountability
Bruce was unable to come, but asked (via bodha) about the items he brought up at the last meeting that needed money spending on them.
Renee Wilkes at BSC has been trying to track down ownership/responsibility for our community hall but has not had any success,so BSC intends to write to the TSCA offering the community the choice of taking ownership or giving it over to BSC.Renee Wilkes is the property and contracts officer for BSC and following this up has been part of her responsibilities.
We discussed this and repeated our decision of last meeting that we won't spend ANY money on the hall until we see quotes, and a financial summary of what is happening at the hall. In addition we stressed that given the issues over ownership there would be no money spent on the hall until Bruce had met with Colin and sorted these issues out, and Bruce was requested not to have any contact with council about the hall until he'd met with Colin.
Bodha expressed concerns that she hadn't seen the books since October and had never seen the book that supposedly exists on hall bookings and use. While everyone was happy that the hall was getting lots of energy from Bruce there were concerns that we are fiscally responsible for it. Mitra offered to talk to Bruce and try and sort stuff out.
Also - we need to clarify issues about insurance in the case we take over ownership, and in particular whether we would be responsible if some low-cost contractor was injured working on the hall.
