Adopted Minutes - Advisory Neighborhood Commission 4B

Special Public Meeting - October 6, 2008

Adopted on October 23, 2008

 

 

The meeting was held at Riggs-LaSalle Community Center, 501 Riggs Road, NE.  It started at 7:38 p.m., Chair Douglass Sloan (4B09) presiding.  Also present were Commissioners Sara Green (4B01), Faith Wheeler (4B02), Frederick Grant (4B03), and Yvonne Jefferson (4B08).  A quorum was present for all votes.

 

Votes

1.   In a unanimous show-of-hands vote on a motion made by Commissioner Green, the agenda was adopted with a friendly amendment proposed by Commissioner Wheeler.  The amendment is to "reconsider the 2nd Quarter FY 2008 Quarterly Report (January - March 2008) as presented here."

 

Commissioner Wheeler noted that the Commission had already adopted the 2nd Quarterly Report, so it would be duplicative to do so again. [Note: ANC 4B Minutes show the report was approved during the June 26, 2008 Public Meeting.], 

 

Other Commissioners explained that the report had been adopted in an earlier vote, but the report was submitted to the Commission in a handwritten form and not on the official form used by the Auditor's office.  It's a good idea to approve the 2nd Quarterly Report on the appropriate form,.Chair Sloan and Treasurer Grant said.

 

2.   In a unanimous show-of-hands vote on a motion made by Commissioner Wheeler, the Commission adopted the 2nd Quarterly Report for FY 2008 (January - March).  There was one minor typographical correction. The payee for Check Number 4260 is "Jemal's Takoma."  Also, two different copies of the report had been distributed at the meeting.  The correct report shows $79.34 in interest in the Savings Account.

 

The report shows an opening balance of $38,266.02, with total receipts of $17,390.21.  There were $3,985.35 in disbursements and an ending balance of $51,670.88.  The savings account had a balance forward of $42,431.75 with interest of $79.34 and an ending balance of $42,511.09.

$44,601.64.  The savings account had an opening balance of $42,511.09, with interest of $79.49 and an ending balance of $42,590.58.

 

Chair Sloan noted that the D.C. Auditor received information from the Kids First Basketball Program about its $1,000 ANC 4B grant. It is not clear if the information is complete, he said.

 

Mr. Paul Montague and Ms. Regina Page asked why no unemployment insurance or withholding tax payments for ANC 4B's employee, Ms. Akena Allen, are included on the quarterly reports.  Chair Sloan and Vice Chair Wheeler explained that the money was withheld from Ms. Allen's pay but has not yet been paid to the appropriate agencies.  These payments will be made during the 4th Quarter and the payments will be shown on the 4th Quarterly Report for FY 2008 (July - September), Chair Sloan and Vice Chair Wheeler said.

 

Mr. Montague asked about two payments to Commissioner Malik Johnson -- one for $13.90 and one for $37.01.  The $13.90 was for reimbursement for travel expenses to a meeting and the $37.01 was for business cards, Treasurer Grant said.

 

The meeting adjourned at about 8:15 p.m.
