General Membership Meeting
September 13, 2005
Warren, Michigan

President Niland called meeting to order at 12:50 p.m.

The program for today was a Round Table Discussion on the use of PODS (metal storage containers). Most communities regulate them with the use of their Zoning Ordinances by identifying them as accessory structures. They then have to comply with the Zoning Ordinance as far as location on the site. The use of the PODS does not seem to be a major problem in most Cities.

Motion by member Penn, seconded by member Pumphrey to approve the minutes of August 09, 2005 meeting as presented. The motion Carried/Unanimous.

Treasurer Martin reported we have 12,762.28 in our checking account and $19,455.96 in our savings account. A motion was made by member Haluska and supported by member Wiggle to approve the Treasurer’s Report. The motion Carried/Unanimous.

The Fall Conference will be held October 11, 2005 in Novi. The cost is $20.00 for the lunch. There is no cost for the conference itself.

President Niland announced the Xmas Luncheon will be held again at Cranks. Vice President Gysel made a motion that we spend $1,500.00 for gift cards for members. The motion was supported and seconded. The motion Carried/Unanimous.
