This is a little bit of back-fill. It’s my meeting notes from the October 2007 DLANC Board meeting, where I was first sworn in as Ginny’s alternate. I hope to cover future meetings in a similar fashion.

i was sworn in as ginny’s alternate during the meeting.

minutes were approved, with ginny’s changes. even though russell hadn’t read them.

special election for city west residential board member will be on october 30 from 7pm to 8pm in a building to be determined.

eric is stepping down as artist-at-large and treasurer. dave bullock was sworn in as his alternate, and there will be a vote on treasurer at the next board meeting (and dave has volunteered).

the mayor’s budget day is on saturday. brady and russell will be going. (as you would expect, nobody else volunteered.)

only a few of the board members have undergone the mandatory ethics training, which reportedly must be completed within one year of being elected. (not sure if that applies to alternates.)

the pluc letters were all approved, along with a vote of support for little radio (which will likely be coming back with a more specific proposal).

ted hayes spoke on his plan for converting old military bases into communities that would help bring the homeless back into society.

hal promoted the memory walk. i forget the details. (just kidding. http://www.alzla.org/mw/ and it is on downtownla.com)

the reallocation of $5000 for brady to spend on cool los angeles historical stuff was approved. (sorry ginny, i voted no for you.)

og man and lesley told us more about the 3-on-3 basketball league, and the board voted to allocate $2500 for t-shirts, educational toys, and cds.

at this point in the meeting, i had to go to the bathroom. on the way back, i was stopped by a woman who is working to bring part of the mariachi celebration on november 22 to the million dollar theater. (she spoke later in the public comments, and i tried to steer her towards the arts committee, but shane bolted after the meeting before i could connect them.)

while i was gone, the board voted to approve $4000 for the jules verne festival. i’m a little confused by this — the proposal from the education committee was only for $2500. i’m told that michael delijani’s alternate was the first with his hand up to approve the allocation, which seems like a good clue that he has not been through the ethics training.

i missed the budget presentation. presumably what was discussed in the executive committee meeting is what happened. i hear that a large amount of money was allocated for web stuff.

mainly main is happening on november 4, volunteers are needed to staff the dlanc office. (there was no sign-up sheet.)

filming update was as discussed in the residential issues meeting.

i think the day of the dead festival item got skipped.

nothing unexpected from the committee reports. rules and elections committee meeting is unscheduled still. the last arts meeting had a really large turnout. didn’t get an answer on when the next economic development meeting was. (but i may not have asked.)

that was it. the meeting was colorful, but nothing unexpected happened. the rubber stamp still works.
