Chairperson Tracy led a discussion regarding the November 13, 2002 CRWD Financial Report.

Managers suggested that Administrator Anderson review the CRWD Financial Report prior to the regularly scheduled meetings to explain the various billings as they relate to authorized expenditures. The Board of Managers will receive the Administrator’s comments as they review the monthly financial reports.

Managers requested that the amount of time on the regularly scheduled meeting agenda designated for reviewing the financial report be expanded and limit the time for presentations. CRWD Financial Reports will also be reviewed at each Work Session.
