Fran Romweber reported that Three Rivers School District invited us to join their Wellness Committee meeting in early November. We discussed with them how we had planned our own "Health Day" to move forward with our We Thrive pathway and we wanted their input. Three Rivers School discouraged us in doing this because of their experience in having a small turnout, so they invited us to join with them in their "Back to School" day which will take place in August, 2016. All parents and students will be attending this event and thus, will provide a larger audience for us to reach.

To Council Members for Your Information and Review

Prior to last monthís council meeting a Finance committee meeting was held and the 2016 proposed Appropriation Budget was agreed upon. Later tonight Mr. Moorman, your finance chairman, will be asking for the 2016 Appropriation Budget Ordinance to be adopted.

This month we received quarterly franchise fees from Cin. Bell, $920, Duke, $829 and Time Warner, which has just switched to quarterly vs. yearly in the amount of $4504.

For the last three months we have been receiving a Local Government funds supplement in the amount of $633 per month. This will help replace some of the money that has been taken away from local governments over the last couple of years. There is no word on how long the supplements may continue.

We wrote two purchase orders this month:

$2000 for closing costs on two parcels of land given to us by Hamilton County

$$2633 for the salt box as agreed on at the budget committee meeting (the actual cost was $4000 but there was some money remaining in the 2015 equipment budget
