There was no public comment.

The minutes of the May 2014 meeting were approved by consensus.

City MOU update:  Jim has received comments from Bill regarding items to discuss in the negotiations.  Others chimed in with additional thoughts on classes, with the general notion that DCN will offer a minimum of 15 events per year, with 12 as part of the Connections Café at the Senior Center and 3 as part of its regular class schedule.  The development of the Veterans Memorial Center site as a class venue is seen as desirable and to be promoted during discussions with the city.  Consulting on community outreach tools was also discussed as a DCN task item.  Jim has been notified that Samantha Wallace is no longer the contact person for this item, and that negotiations will be handled by Jason Best.  A meeting has not been scheduled yet, but it in the works.  In a related matter, Rob noted that his proposal for city connectivity has been accepted, but implementation has been deferred until August 1.  Sheila will continue to bill the city as in the past.

Financial update:  Sheila noted that the UCD payment has not been received.  There is some confusion about billing, but she will submit an invoice even though she had been led to believe that invoicing wasn’t necessary.

Municipal fiber update:  Rob discussed his concept proposal, telling the members that the pieces never came together so the proposal did not get submitted to the city.  The board discussed other ways in which DCN might contribute to the conversation, and the idea of a white paper describing municipal fiber best practices might be useful.  The potential for synergy with a municipal power utility was also mentioned.  No action item is associated with this discussion.

City election results:  The board agreed that a meeting with new City Council member Robb Davis is in order to bring him up to speed on DCN’s relationship with the city.  No action item is associated with this item.

Committee reports:  Anne told the board that only 1 request had been submitted to the RAC recently, and it was from an out-of-state organization.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:00 p.m.
