Dann Keiser made opening remarks and then asked Starlah Smith to report. Starlah shared that the Finance Committee and Dann Keiser came up with several options to rectify the cash flow situation. She indicated that we need to take the full $100,000 line of credit to make payroll and would pay it back by October. Starlah then made some comments on the budget work that has been done mentioning Jake Rogers, Julie Grott, and the Board of Education. There was some discussion about the deficit of about $149,000 and then the discussion turned to working through the budget's income and expense lines to confirm income projections and to identify cost avoidance opportunities. Jenn Sterrett explained the health insurance options and there were several comments and questions. Conversation continued regarding budget items related to Pastor French, Pastor Heckert, Jake Rogers and Julie Grott. After discussing these budget lines, Pastor French then asked about continued attendance of himself, Pastor Heckert, Jake Rogers and Julie Grott. After a brief discussion and with no disagreement Pastor French, Pastor Heckert, Jake Rogers and Julie Grott excused themselves from the meeting and the budget review continued. The conversation became more philosophical and strategic as PPC discussed future goals and then took a few minutes to pray. Several comments were made as the philosophical discussion continued. Then PPC resumed the budget review. Mike O'Donnell made a motion to postpone the meeting and reconvene due to the late hour. The motion was not seconded and it did not pass. There was a brief discussion and agreement to continue and finish an adjusted budget that could be presented to Voters. After going through the rest of the budget Chris Rowan made some comments and suggested a planning meeting be held to continue the strategic groundwork that PPC had started. The special meeting was set for July 11, 2018 at 5:30p.m. Chris then made a motion to submit the budget with adjustments for Voters consideration and Starlah Smith seconded. The motion carried.
