As per our LEPAC's Constitution and By-Laws, the executive shall advertise expenditures greater than $1000 in a LEPAC newsletter that are not already in the approved budget.  A vote shall take place at the next General Meeting.


A motion was passed at our general LEPAC meeting held on January 16th, 2019 to present an expenditure of $3000 that does not exist in the approved budget.  The executive is requesting that $3000 be spent on 2 Gaga ball courts that will be added to our outside play area. We are proposing to reallocate $1700 that was budgeted for Maple Man and the Artist in Residence.  We have received additional funds from the province for the Gaming Account to pay for the Maple Man and Artist in Residence. We also have an expected surplus that will cover the additional $1300 that is needed. A vote to approve or oppose this expenditure will take place at our next General Meeting on February 20th.
