President Heideman recognized Maintenance Supervisor Jeff Hanson who reported on the following:

Treasurer Krystal Alberts inquired if Jeff had a suggestion how his insurance premium should be paid. When our auditor performed the audit, he stated the way we’re paying Jeff for the insurance is not allowed. He advised the board we need to either reimburse the employee (Jeff) for the actual amount or pay the bill directly. Lisa is the one who handles the insurance for the family and Jeff reported he would ask her if she could get an invoice from the carrier. Krystal will talk to Lisa and review the auditor’s suggestions with her.
