Funding Recommendations

  • Agreed to submit the document at 11/8/03 board meeting.

 

Patronage Rebate – based on balance sheet positions and required capital outlays over the next several years the finance committee does not recommend a patronage rebate for 2002-2003.

 

Reserve Funds – After the 2002/03 statements are finalized the finance committee will recommend an additional reserve fund be set up by the board.

 

Debit Cards-

  • The question of having regular credit cards with the MadRiver logo on them for shareholders or other MadRiver patrons to use might generate some revenue. Jamey to investigate further.
  • Could also investigate a gift card type of card with cash balances. all.
