SO THESE WERE -- WE HAD BEEN DISCUSSING, SO JUST TO REFRESH EVERYBODY'S MEMORY, WE HAVE THE WATERWAY ARTS DISTRICT BANNERS LIGHT POLES THROUGHOUT THE WATERWAY AND THE DOWN CENTER AREA OF WHAT OUR ARTS DISTRICT IS.
[00:20:01]I MET WITH THE COMMISSIONER.
THEN I WOULD ALSO ASK DON FROM A STANDPOINT OF THIS IS IN COMMITTEE DISCUSSION, AT WHAT TIME FRAME WOULD THIS NEED TO POTENTIAL THE COMMITTEE IS SAYING WE WOULD LIKE TO PROCEED ON OR AT LEAST GET THE THIS, DOES IT GO TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS?
ONE OF THE THINGS AS YOU GO BACK TO THE COMMISSIONER, I WOULD SUGGEST AT LEAST THAT WE TOUCH BASE TO SEE IF THE COMMISSIONER WOULD BE WILLING TO ENTER INTO AN INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT WITH US TO WHERE THEY WOU AND INSTALL THE SIGN BLANKS AND EVERYTHING, WHICH MAY ACTUALLY EITHER C ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE R.F.P., WHICH I DIRECTOR RIESER SUGGESTED IS NEEDED HERE.

SONYA, DO YOU MIND, IF YOU COULD, PUT THE APPLICATION UP ON THE SCREEN? SO REALLY, DR. SNYDER, JUST LOOKING FOR THE COMMITTEE BACK ON DO WE -- THESE ARE THE FUNDS THAT ARE TAGGED WITH THE EVENTS AD TAX.
REALLY AT THIS POINT IT'S JUST IS THIS SOMETHING THAT WE WANT TO JUST MOVE TO THE SIDE RIGHT NOW OR IS THIS SOMETHING THAT WE WANT T ULTIMATELY TAKE TO THE TOWNSHIP BOARD? THE REASON I BRING IT UP IS BECAUSE THE DISCUSSION WITH THE COMMITTEE WAS IF THERE
[00:30:01]WERE ANY KIND OF BUDGET INITIATIVES THAT THIS WOULD BE A FORM APPLICATION TO START THE PROCESS.
>> I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THE COMMITTEE TALKED ABOUT IN REGARD TO THAT, WHAT DIRECTOR RIESER WAS SAYING, IS THE COMMI DETERMINED LAST OR ONE OF THE TIMES WHEN WE THIS THAT YOU WOULD CONSIDER AND IMPLEMENT A POLICY ONCE IT WENT THROUGH REVIEW.
>> CHAIRWOMAN SNYDER: AT ONE POINT IN TIME DURING THE DISCUSSION WE HAD TALKED ABOUT THE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER AND THE FUND WOULD BE AVAILABLE -- I DON'T KNOW, DON, IF YOU WANT TO WEIGH IN ON THAT PAST DISCUSSIONS REGARDING ANY FUNDS AND THE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER? WE HAVE BEEN IN THE DISCUSSION FOR THE LA SEVERAL YEARS.
[00:35:01]$50,000 IN THAT RANGE.
BUT I DO THINK THAT THERE ARE ESPECIALLY AFTER HEARING THE DISCUSSION WITH THE CHILDREN'S MUSEUM THIS YEAR THAT THAT MONEY MI WELL USED IN MAKING GRANTS TO SOME OF OUR THIS YEAR IN LIGHT OF WHAT HAS GONE ON WITH COVID.
I HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT SOMEBODY HAS A CONTRARY OPINION, ESPECIALLY WITH OIL STILL STRUGGLING MIGHTILY IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO MOUND AN EFFECTIVE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN ESPECIALLY WHEN THE PAVILION ISN'T EV OPERATING THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF THE RESTRICTIONS.
[00:40:02]THAT YOU HAVE IT IN PLACE.
