Manager Velkme made a motion, seconded by Manager Cedillo to approve Resolutions 19-R-3 and 19-R-4 to amend the LTACC budget and approve the purchase of equipment and services.

E/D O’Connor inquired on the status of the Tyler New World agreement with Western Springs to clear up ownership and payment responsibilities of New World software. Manager Velkme stated she had not received a copy. E/D O’Connor will send her and Pat Schramm a new copy to review.
E/D O’Connor informed the Board that the evaluation for TC Muir had been completed and was recommended to move off probation. No action needed, informational only.
E/D O’Connor updated the Board on the status of the proposal for Countryside. Several costs have been received from vendors, we are still waiting on others and researching all necessary steps and actions.
Manager Cedillo updated the Board on Brookfield requesting a waiver of fees related to NetWest. Manager Cedillo reviewed that Brookfield went to WC3 for dispatch services, however did not provide notice of leaving NetWest until recently. Under the IGA, a community must provide 9- days written notice. Brookfield is contesting the bill, stating they did not use the network since switching over in May, 2018. However, they did use the Net since May 1 for several days, and LTACC did not budget for the reduced revenue. After discussion, the Board agreed to adjust the price due to one quarter’s cost, $3,865. Manager Cedillo will contact the Brookfield Village Manager to follow-up.
A motion was made by Manager Cedillo and seconded by Manager Velkme to adjourn the meeting at 2:02 p.m.
