Special Guest - Unfortunately special guest Jessica Morrison, resource officer for Louisville Metro Police Department, could not attend, but she will try to attend a future meeting.
Treasurers Report - Joan Stewart introduced our new professional bookkeeper, Debbie Rush. They are currently working on getting everything loaded into Quickbooks, and we should have professional treasurers reports starting at the February 2017 TTNA meeting. A basic treasurer's report was provided at the January meeting.
Vote: Motion to purchase and install 12 additional TTNA banners for $1,700. Motion passed with all in favor.
Vote: $500 for Holiday Home Tour. This vote was tabled until the Holiday Home tour specifically asks for donations, and it will be voted on at that time.
Spring Fest 2017: We will run for 3 days this year and will hopefully have more chances for better weather. As of the January TTNA meeting, we already have 25 Vendor applications, and are hoping to have 200 vendors at Spring Fest this year (past record is 180 vendors). If you know of vendors who would like to apply to have a booth at Spring Fest, they can apply at this website: http://www.oldlouisvillespringfest.org/sign-up.html
Toonerville Trolley Park updates: Park benches are installed. Rain gardens are currently being designed in partnership with UofL students. We probably need to lobby harder to get playground equipment and it has now been delayed to the 2017-2018 Metro budget.
Street Cleaning - Street cleaning for alleys in Old Louisville and elsewhere were "taken out of scope" to cut costs for Metro. If you can, call the city and lobby for street cleaning and alley cleaning.
Meeting End - 7:58 PM
