Curtis Newsome noted that someone has been picking up trash along Rte. 620 at Broadwater Bridge area. Many thanks from the BNRP to this unknown individual(s).
Nancy Turner received a suggestion from SunTrust Bank that we open a CD. After a conversation it was noted that this would tie up too much of the BNRP funds.
Jeff Turner discussed the possibility of using a debit or check card at Sun Trust for the BNRP account. Following a discussion, Chairman Newsome made the motion for three BNRP Board Members:
Jeff Turner (BNRP Executive Director); Nancy Turner (BNRP Treasurer); and Anne Parker (BNRP Board Member)
sign the form at SunTrust regarding the BNRP Account so they can use a check card to transact BNRP business as needed. This motion was seconded by Anne Parker. Motion passed.
With no other members present with reports and no other business, Chairman Newsome dismissed the meeting. BNRP next meeting will be on Wednesday, July 08, 2015 at 7:30pm. As always, the meetings are open to members and the public at the Workforce Center in Franklin.
