Old Business:
Marketing & Web site: We are making progress in obtaining Chad Oliveira. A proposal was submitted to the board. The
consensus overall was that the proposal was fair. Brandy Ellzey brought up concerns regarding the web site budget and
the possibility of increasing the web site budget by moving some funds out of marketing was discussed. Tara
Hendrickson brought up concerns regarding terms for payment. These will be brought up with Mr. Oliveira.
It was also decided that a permanent file should be kept with the secretaries that lists all information with regards to the
web site, hosting, and log in information. Currently we know that Laurie Ellis opened our Go Daddy account, Charles
Ellis is able to give us access to some of the maintenance areas, but Jeff Nelson has the controlling access.

announced at the May 19th meeting.

Pierce County Economic Development Meeting: Tracey was able to inform the membership that this group focuses
mostly on bigger businesses that serve outside the local area and most small businesses won’t qualify for the program.
Judd has invited them to the August meeting.
Individual Reports

let us know that our regular server at the Homeport is having health issues. They are hosting a raffle to help her and a
card was brought for everyone to sign.

a week or so. Port of Seattle Credit Union will be merging with Sound Credit Union. They are by the airport.

Conservation Corps is putting in more trails. April 25th is Parks Appreciation Day and there will be work done out on the
360 trails. While the parks are waiting for approval on the Gateway Park Master Plan, they are going ahead with some
work on the backside of things.
Dick Kelly, Key Peninsula Vets: The Key Peninsula Vets performed the flag raising at the little league.
Tara Hendrickson, The Tax Shack Inc: The deadline for taxes is April 15th. Get your extensions filed.

up. Judd won the Citizen of the Year.

color season.
Frank Grubaugh, Key Peninsula Fire: Follow the fire department on Facebook. They are working for a lid lift. $1.50 per
$1000 was approved by voters but it has a lid after $100,000. A lid lift will restore what was approved by the voters and
help the fire department get money that is much needed for reserves and maintenance.

back in service soon.
