• Jared suggested that we give some money to the county greens to help them do some mailings to get people involved, pay for copies etc.
• Heidi suggested we donate a percentage of our monthly balance to the county.
• Hannah pointed out that might take a lot of administrative work to do it every month, and we might not want to always give the county money.
• Kaitlin suggested that we pay for the Eureka portion of the county mailing, so long as they amount does not exceed $300. (If it is a lot less than $300 then we are willing to pay for up to $250 to cover the costs for other localities.) In order to do this we need the mailing to mention the dates, times, location of our meetings and give our website. Jared will report this to the county at their next meeting.
