GET THE MEETING STARTED.

CHRIS SPEAR HERE, ALEX FLOP HERE.

OKAY.

OPENING REMARKS BY THE CHAIR.

I'M ACTUALLY GONNA TURN THIS OVER TO JOSH.

JOSH, IF YOU CAN HEAR THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, MEANING THE PROCESS.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

I KNOW WITH THIS REMOTE MEETING, UM, THE PUBLIC WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY WHEN IT COMES TO CITIZEN COMMENTS TO, UM, ASK A QUESTION VIA THE, UH, LIVE CONFERENCING.

AND, UM, THERE WILL BE A DELAY ON THAT OBVIOUSLY, UH, AS TO WHAT SHOWS UP AND WHEN, BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN TYPE YOUR QUESTIONS IN IF YOU HAVE ANY.

AND, UM, WE'LL, THE MODERATOR WILL ANSWER THOSE.

IF ANYBODY GETS DISCONNECTED FROM THE CALL, WE WILL STOP THE MEETING AND WAIT FOR THEM TO RECONNECT.

UM, AT THAT POINT WE WILL COMMENCE AND MOVE ON.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? OKAY, SO I LOST YOU GUYS AUDIO FOR A SECOND.

WHAT'D YOU SAY? CORRECT BUSINESS.

UM, WE ARE STILL MOVING FORWARD PLANNING THINGS, UM, PER THE USUAL.

UM, WE DO HAVE ALL 10 BANDS, UH, SCHEDULED FOR THE SUMMER MUSIC SERIES.

UH, WE HAVE THE, THE MOVIE SCHEDULED.

I STILL GOTTA GET THE LICENSING AND, UM, SEND THE CONTRACT BACK, UH, TO, UH, FUND BOOKS FOR THOSE.

UM, HOPEFULLY ALL OF THIS WILL BE LIFTED SOON AND WE CAN MOVE ON AS USUAL.

UM, SARAH, THE NEW COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT COORDINATOR AND MYSELF, UH, IN THE LAST YEAR WE TRIED TO DO THE ART SHOW WITH THE HIGH SCHOOL OR WITH THE SCHOOL IN GENERAL.

UM, AND BECAUSE THE KIDS ARE SHUT DOWN AND THINGS, SARAH AND I STARTED COMMUNICATING WITH THE SCHOOLS TODAY ABOUT FINDING A WAY TO POSSIBLY HELP HOST A VIRTUAL ART SHOW.

UM, SO WE ARE LOOKING INTO THE DETAILS OF THAT TALKING WITH THE ART TEACHERS.

AND AS I HAVE MORE DETAILS, I'LL LET YOU GUYS KNOW.

CLICK START AGAIN, TOPICS .

UM, NUMBER TWO IS THE 2020 OBJECTIVES.

I DID SEND THAT OUT TO EVERYONE.

UM, THERE WERE NO CHANGES, SO I GAVE YOU A HARD COPY AT THE LAST MEETING.

SO, UM, POSTPONE THAT UNTIL, UH, ANY OBJECTIONS TO BETTER CALL.

SO, UM, AGENDA ITEM, NUMBER THREE, MOVE IDEAS.

UM BUT THE STRUCTURE AND THE RULES HAVE BEEN WORDED.

UM, UM, I DO WANT TO GO AHEAD AND IT COMES FROM THAT YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO BE AT RIGHT WHEN IT COMES TO THE PARADE.

SO I'M, I'M GIVING THE, UM,

[00:05:02]

UM, UM, TWO OR THREE ITEMS WERE PROBABLY GOOD ENOUGH FACTS.

UM, BUT, UM, BUT I DO WANT TO TALK TO YOU ALL ABOUT POSTPONING IMAGE REJECTIONS.

I AM ON THE LIST LISTED AND I CHANGE, UM, PROVIDE A HARD COPY TO YOU.

THE ONE THING THAT I DID WANT TO TALK ABOUT IS, UM, I DID TALK TO JANIE BRIEFLY AFTER OUR MEETING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL OF DOING SOME TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS AND, UM, SPECIFICALLY, UM, SO PERHAPS WE CAN DO LIKE A MEDIATION COURSE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN HELPING TO DEVELOP THAT CONTENT, JOSH WITH A DATE.

UM, I THINK THAT WOULD BE GREAT ACTUALLY THAT, YEAH, WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT, BUT ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM.

AND OF COURSE, YOU KNOW, UM, I THINK THERE'S A REALLY GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO PUT INTO THE TIED INTO A SCAVENGER HUNT AS WELL.

UM, BUT IT'S, IT'S JUST TEACHING PEOPLE THE BASICS, UM, AND THEN SOME COOL TRAITS THAT WILL BE MINE THEN WE CAN USE IN FUTURE AS WELL.

UM, SO, UM, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT TOPIC THEN? GO AHEAD, JOSH.

I KNOW VINCE AND I HAD DISCUSSED IT AND I THINK I BROUGHT IT UP LAST MEETING AS WELL, JAY, UH, POSSIBLY DO IN, UM, ALSO A, LIKE A PHOTOGRAPHY SCAVENGER HUNT WHERE YOU GO TO A PARK AND NOT LIKE A SUPER OBSCURE PICTURE, BUT TAKE A PICTURE, WE'LL POST IT ON THE PARKS PAGE AND THEN PEOPLE HAVE TO GO FIND WHERE THAT PICTURE WAS TAKEN AND THEN TAKE A PICTURE OF THEMSELVES IN THAT SPOT AND UPLOAD IT TO THE FACEBOOK PAGE.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE CAN COME UP WITH SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, WE'LL WORK, UH, AT THE END OF IT AND WE CAN PICK ONE OR WHOEVER GETS THEM ALL OR SOMETHING AND, UH, DO A PRIZE FOR THAT OR, OR SOMETHING, BUT WE'LL, UH, YEAH, AND THAT THEY WEREN'T WANTING TO GO THROUGH THE IDEAS FROM THE PROGRAMMING AND THEN WE CAME UP WITH SIMILAR.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO I'LL DO THAT.

SO MINE WAS A NATURE CLASS AND WE TALKED ABOUT GLEN POTENTIALLY HELPING JOHN OR MEETING THAT.

AND NEXT THING YOU KNOW, LYNN WOULD HAVE TAKEN TO DO.

AND OF COURSE JOSH IS NOW DENNIS JUST JOINED MY COMPUTER.

OKAY.

IT WAS JUST AN IDEA.

UM, UM, TO ANOTHER LOCATION AND OF COURSE THEY WOULD PROBABLY SAY SOMETHING SHORT AND SWEET AND THEN, UM, YOU CAN ALSO DO SHORT STORIES WITH THAT AS WELL.

AND THAT'S ACTUALLY A GREAT IDEA.

THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT PROBABLY TIED BACK TO THE ART IF WE DID SOMETHING LIKE THAT IN THE FUTURE.

YEAH.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UM, AND THEN THAT LAST YEAR JOSH THEATERS THAT COMES THROUGH THE INMATES, UM, AND THEN THEY WAS DOING TELESCOPES AND ALL THIS OTHER STUFF, AND I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED THERE AND THEY'RE GOING, I CAN SEE THE STARS, THE STARS AND ALL THAT.

SO THAT WAS A VERY GOOD EVENT LAST YEAR.

UM, AND I THINK EVERYONE ENJOYED IT.

I THINK WE DID IT.

SO, UM, I THINK

[00:10:01]

WE HAVE A COLUMN OF DATES AS WELL, UM, FOR THAT AS WELL.

SO AS SOON AS THAT STARTS TO GET COMFORTABLE, WE'LL START SEEING THAT IT CAN PUSH THAT OUT.

UM, THE OTHER ONE WAS A SUMMER READING IN THE BAR, YOU KNOW, WITH HOMES, UM, JOSHUA WORKED WITH THEM TO GET THE SCHEDULE OUT AS WELL.

UM, UM, I BELIEVE THAT WAS THEN I WOULD BE TIED TO IN MY HAND, UM, MAYBE, UM, I'M TRYING TO GO THREE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT BEFORE I HAD THOSE COMBINES ON THE PUMPKIN STAIRS AND ALL OF THAT, UM, UH, GO AHEAD AND HIT DONE, AND MAYBE WE'LL DO SOME TYPE OF CONTEST OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SO WE'RE STILL FLUSHING IN THOSE DETAILS, BUT THAT WILL BE, UM, WELL, THE ONLY THING THAT WILL BE IS PEOPLE THAT HAVE TO DROP OFF THEIR DOCKETS CAR HAD BEEN OLD PATTERN.

WE WOULDN'T GET ANY CARVINGS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

SO, UM, I MEAN, THAT'S A GOOD AS WELL.

WELL, WE ALSO TALKED ABOUT A BUILDING SERIES.

UM, MY YEAR JOSH HAD REACHED OUT TO UH .

UM SO, UM, THAT WAS ANOTHER IDEA WHILE PAIN WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL LAST YEAR FOR THE WRONGS AND THE PAIN TO COME OUT AND COME AND TAKE THEM HOME, WHO KNOWS.

SO, UM, THAT'S ALL THAT I HAD LISTED, WHETHER PLANTING, UM, JOSH IS STILL INTERESTED IN THAT OR THE, UM, THE LADY AT LOWE'S, UH, JERRY AND I HAVE REACHED OUT TO HER SEVERAL TIMES TO ASK WHAT WE COULD DO WITH THAT AND WHAT EXACTLY THEY WASN'T TAILED.

AND THEY WERE WILLING TO DONATE.

WE HAVEN'T HEARD BACK.

AND THE A AND B BOARD MEMBER WHO WAS KIND OF HEADING THAT UP, HAS SINCE RESIGNED.

SO I THINK THAT KIND OF PUSHED TO THE WAYSIDE RIGHT NOW.

THERE ARE GOING TO BE THOUGH LIKE GIRL SCOUT TROOP LAST YEAR, UH, WANTED TO DO SOMETHING WITH PLANTING SOME POLLINATORS.

SO WE MAY KIND OF TURN IT INTO THAT WHERE WE HAVE THEM DO THE PARK SIGNS WITH SOME POLLINATOR FLOWERS AND THEY CAN PUT THEIR LUNCHES AND STUFF IN THERE.

AND THE TREES YOU CUT OUT THERE, CHRIS, I COULDN'T HEAR YOU.

WE, WE, WE TALKED ABOUT, UH, GLEN IN THE PARK GOING THROUGH, YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT PRIESTS.

YEAH, YEAH.

UM, OKAY.

SO LET ME THE OTHER NEED THERE.

SO, UM, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ONTO NEW BUSINESS.

UM, THE RULES OF THE BOARD.

SO THE MAIL WILL BE DELIVERED TOMORROW FROM MY LUNCH BREAK.

UM, EMAILED A COPY OF THAT TO YOU.

UM, AND BASICALLY THESE ARE JUST MY IDEAS, MY THOUGHTS, UM, I REALLY WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOUR, UM, MY GOAL IS TO HELP GIVE US SOME MORE STRUCTURE AND, UH, AND THAT REMAINS, I INCLUDED IT WAS ON THERE SUCH AS, UM, THERE WE GO.

UM, THINGS LIKE, YOU KNOW, OUR MEETINGS, REGULAR MEETINGS, UM, YOU KNOW, MAYBE WE'LL TRY TO MIMIC THEM DOWN UNTIL ABOUT ANYTHING, UM, TO THE NEXT MEETING.

OKAY.

UM, AND THEN ALSO, UM, I INCLUDED A SPECIAL .

[00:15:04]

OKAY.

AND THEN ALSO INCLUDING ME HERE, YOU KNOW, UM, SO, YOU KNOW, WE ALL HAVE JOBS AND UNDERSTAND THAT AND AND ALL OF THAT, BUT WHAT I'M FOCUSING ON FOR THAT.

SO I JUST DO A NUMBER OF UNEXCUSED ABSENCES UNEXCUSED.

UM, BUT THAT IS SOMETHING THAT I HAD TO DO AS WELL.

AND THEN I ALSO HAD, UM, UH, WHICH I'M CURRENTLY, ALREADY DOING ANYWAY.

UM, BUT, UM, UM, YOU KNOW, RECOMMENDATIONS IN OUR DECISION FROM OUR BOARD TO SEEK COUNSELING, UM, YOU KNOW, BASED ON CONVERSATIONS WITH MANAGER, UM, THE PARKS AND RECREATION AND THE CITY MANAGER.

SO, UM, THOSE ARE THE THINGS THAT I HAD IN HERE AND WE COULD ADD MORE, I'M GOING TO KEEP IT SIMPLE, BUT THIS IS VERY SPECIFIC TO OUR BOARD.

UM, AND THEN YOU ALSO HAVE THE , WE STILL HAVE TO SMILE.

SO I'M ASSUMING YOU HAVE A COPY OF THE HANDBOOK AND EVERYTHING, IF YOU DON'T, I WILL SEND YOU A LINK TO IT.

UM, THIS YEAR I KNOW THEY MAILED IT TO YOU.

UM, BUT, UM, UM, SO , WHENEVER OUR NEXT MEETING IS GOING TO BE, UM, NEXT AGENDA ITEM.

AND ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ON THAT? YES, DENNIS, CAN YOU READ THEM AFTER WE, UM, WE'LL COME TONIGHT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, SO THE OTHER ITEM I'M RECOMMENDING THEM TO POSTPONE IS THE PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD BUDGET.

WHAT I'M TRYING TO FIND OUT IS, UM, HOW THERE IS A BUDGET SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR THE PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD.

UM, HOW CAN WE POTENTIALLY DEVELOP ONE FOR THE FUTURE? SO WE HAVE, UM, PROGRAM IN ADMISSIONS, UM, HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH IT, AND HELP ME TO TRACK THAT COST AS WELL, LIKE PRIZES OR GIVEAWAYS OR SPONSORING SOMETHING, UM, YOU KNOW, WE KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY WE NEED IN ORDER TO DO THAT.

SO WE WORK OUT NOW AND TRY TO SEE IF THAT'S SOMETHING WE CAN DO FOR THE NEXT YEAR.

SO YOU'LL HEAR MORE ABOUT INJECTIONS TO THAT.

WE MADE A MEMO AND I WILL TURN THAT OVER TO JOSH.

UH, YEAH, THE ART COMMITTEE HAS REQUESTED AND, UH, KIND OF WENT WITH SCOTT AS WELL.

SO WE CAN GET SOME KIND OF BASELINE FOR THAT.

CAUSE IT'S ALWAYS KIND OF BEEN MINLOW KITTY HAWK, JUST BECAUSE OF THE TWO SCHOOLS THEY'RE, UH, THEY'RE WANTING TO DO THE KITTY HAWK PART.

SO THAT WAY THE DOG PARK WILL BE FLYER FIELD AT KITTY HAWK PARK.

UM, AND I KNOW VINCE WAS WORKING ON A POLICY FOR NAMING, UH, PARKS AND EVERYTHING.

AND SO WE WANT TO KIND OF, WE WANT TO PUT IT THROUGH THE SPORT AND GO THROUGH THE GUIDELINES HERE AND MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY'S OKAY WITH THAT.

UM, AND BEFORE WE MOVE ALONG WITH THAT PROCESS, SO , UM, I THINK FOR WHAT HE SAID, YOU KNOW, MENLO OR THE MIDDLE PARK OR WHATEVER IT WAS THERE, THERE'S NO LIKE HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE FOR THE CITY ITSELF FOR THAT PART OF THEIR NAME.

UM, AND I DON'T KNOW HOW IT EVER CAME UP BEING BOTH NAMES COMBINED.

I THINK IT WAS JUST BECAUSE OF THE TWO SCHOOLS THAT WERE THERE.

UM, SO I THINK JUST TO GO ALONG WITH THE WRIGHT BROTHERS SEEM THAT'S AT THE SCHOOL NOW IS WHY THEY WANTED TO GO WITH KITTY HAWK

[00:20:01]

AND THEN THEY TORE DOWN.

CAUSE HE USED TO SAY IT HAD A SIGN UP THE PART.

AND THEN WHEN THEY TOLD US GO TO, AND THEN OF COURSE, YOU KNOW, TO, WITH DEAL WITH THE TEAM AND IT'S BEEN DROPPED.

SO WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE ROOM.

IT'S JUST HIS CAMERA CATCHING UP ON THE ROOM.

I'LL CALL YOUR NAME, ANY COMMENTS.

SO I'LL START WITH FOLKS THAT I CAN SEE.

SO CHRIS MAKES SENSE.

OKAY.

I TAKE ME THROUGH MY QUESTION JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT MR OR MRS. MENLO WASN'T SOME HERO OR WARRIOR OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, BUT I THINK YOU ANSWERED THAT FOR ME.

THINK OF THE GREAT IDEA ABOUT THE SHOW.

WE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT LATER, BUT THE MAIN CHANGE I UNDERSTAND HAS ALWAYS BEEN KIND OF CONFUSING WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, SO I LIKED IT.

YES, I AGREE.

OKAY.

SO IS THERE A MOTION? I HEARD GLEN.

THANK YOU.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

YES, YES, SIR.

CHRIS, CAN YOU TRANSLATE THE MEMO AND THE CITY COUNCIL TO CITY MANAGER, DEPARTMENT MANAGER, CHRIS THAT ON A DAY COUNCIL.

SO, UM, YOU NEED ADDITIONAL BUSINESS IN ANNOUNCEMENTS.

I DID WANT, UM, CHRIS, IF YOU COULD JUST KIND OF GIVE THE BOARD AN UPDATE ON WHAT THE Y IS DOING RIGHT NOW.

I KNOW THERE'S SOME THINGS ON THE WEBSITE, BUT JUST IN CASE ANYBODY HASN'T HAD A CHANCE TO SEE THAT.

SO WITH THE MONDAY THAT WE CLOSED DUE TO THE CURRENT POWER PANDEMIC,

[00:25:03]

UM, CRITICAL HERE, A CHILDCARE FACILITY.

SO, UM, MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS, UM, FIRST RESPONDERS, POLICE PARAMEDIC FIREFIGHTERS, AND THEY'RE EITHER POTENTIAL FOR WORKERS.

IF THEY'RE CONCERNED TO BE A CENTRAL BY THE STATE, WE'RE STILL WAITING ON FINAL APPROVAL FROM THE GOVERNOR, BUT WE WOULD ALL OFFER DAYCARE.

UM, THOSE, UM, THOSE, THOSE ESSENTIAL AREAS HERE AT THE Y.

SO IF THEY HAVE A PLACE TO GO, SO THEY CAN STILL GO TO WORK AND HELP PEOPLE GET BETTER OR PROVIDE THOSE CRITICAL SERVICES THAT WE NEED AT THIS TIME COMMENTS ON THAT.

OKAY.

HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU FIT IN A POOL? SIX FOOT APART? SO, UM, I'M ASSUMING THAT, UM, FOR RIGHT NOW THE POLICY IS THAT THERE WILL BE NO MEETINGS, NO MEETINGS.

THERE HAS TO BE A DECISION, CORRECT? YEAH.

IF THERE'S NOTHING THAT IS TIME PRESSING OR, OR A MAJOR CONCERN, THEN WE CAN JUST CANCEL THE MEETING.

OKAY.

SO EVERYONE IS GOOD WITH JOSH AND CHRIS AND, UM, WE WILL TALK ON EMAIL AND FIGURE OUT IF THERE ARE ANY DECISIONS THAT NEED TO BE MADE, UM, CANCELING THE MEETING.

I MEAN, YOU AT LEAST HAVE SOME BACKGROUND.

UM, WE WILL HOLD A MEETING TO GET THAT INFORMATION OUT TO ME AT LEAST A WEEK MORE THAN ME.

SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT AGENDA.

THE MINUTES FROM FEBRUARY 20TH, BECAUSE EVERYONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE MINUTES THEY CAME OUT LAST WEEK.

SO OBJECTIONS TO THE MINUTES.

UM UM, AND WE WILL CANCEL A WEEK IN ADVANCE OR A WEEK IN ADVANCE.

UM, IT IS SEVEN 49.

CAN I GET A MOTION TO ENGENDER BRIAN? .
