III.      Approval of Minutes -The minutes from the last regular meeting on 7/15/20were approved.

IV.      Treasurer’s Report - Actor reports that we have a current balance of $30,464.00.  $3,600 of that is for equipment in case of a power outage.  We received this money from a grant from PG&E for a generator and associated equipment. 

V.       General Manager’s Report -   a. Andy reported that he and Olga talked to Ross Kulper, our landlord about reduced rent during the pandemic.  He seemed receptive but did not commit to a specific reduction.  After discussion it was decided that Martin-Steele will send a letter asking for a reduction of rent to $600 a month.  Olga will follow up with a call.  b. Fall Fund Drive - After paying for generators we have about $850 left.  It was suggested to buy portable radios to give away either as premiums for people who become members or to people who need them or both.  We will need to figure out a distribution system.  Martin-Steele and Krones will work on this.  c. Andy said it will take about $600 to make Studio B (the production studio) ready to go on the air if needed in case the main studio is not available.  At the last meeting the Board authorized up to $2,000 to for this purpose.  d. The studio has generators in case of an emergency power shut down. 

VI.      Committee Reports: 

a. Program Committee - Karl reported.  a. Michael Green cannot be on the air while he is running for Lakeport City Council.  b. We need programmers and / or board operators to be trained to be on the air in case of an emergency. c. Every programmer needs to read and be familiar with and follow FCC guidelines.  This is important for our license renewal in 2021.

b. Underwriting - We continue to get income from underwriters.
