Mr. Schoenegge asked about the status of the Townsend Community School building project. Mr. Hammond and Mr. Kurt updated the Board with the status of the building project. Townsend Community has been working with an architect to develop plans. The location of the building has been discussed by both school boards in the past. The proposed location that would have the best potential outcome would be on the High School footprint. The plan is that Townsend Community would lease the land from Margaretta Schools and make an annual lease payment. All of this is still in the discussion stages and before any plan is finalized, the project would have to be approved by both School Boards.

Mr. Schoenegge led a discussion on "going green" with regard to the dishwasher position being eliminated at the High School. Mr. Hammond explained that the decision was to use bio-degradable trays for the High School food service operations as opposed to replacing the dishwashing machine. The timing was to move the kitchen helper at the High School to the Elementary once the Elementary building kitchen helper retired which occurred on January 31, 2014. We plan on trying this process for the remainder of the school year and then we will assess the pros and cons to determine what we should do for the next school year.

Motion by Mr. Lippert, seconded by Mrs. McMahon to adjourn the meeting having no further business to come before the board. Roll call: Mrs. Kelble: aye, Mr. Lippert: aye, Mr. Schoenegge: aye, Mrs. McMahon: aye.

Meeting adjourned at 5:48 P.M.
