The board already approved the goals in the business plan. The entire business plan document, including the narrative and statistics information at the beginning with state report statistics added needs to be approved.
[spacer height="10px"]Upon starting some 2019 projects, staff have a better picture of the feasibiltiy of some of the goals. B. Bleck suggested the following revisions:
- Push the redesign of the website into early 2020. The redesign will be time-consuming and will build upon other marketing work being done in 2019.
- Push marketing training with Jill Fuller to Q4 when the style guide is complete.
- Move record retention to Q4 as it builds on the shared drive organization.
H. Schick moved to approve the 2019 Business Plan, S. Homberg seconded.

The Board discussed the fee schedule for patrons borrowing hotspots. Prior discussions were reviewed. In previous meetings, the Board found that charging fees for circulation of hotspots would not be consistent with the library's mission. The Board decided not to charge for hotspot circulation, only for late returns and lost or damaged hotspots. H. Schick moved to not charge usage fees for hotspots and to keep current fines and fees schedule. S. Homberg seconded and motion carried.
