1. Introductions/ Comments from the Audience
Virtual meeting attendees introduced themselves and shared their areas of interest and other comments. They also were asked to share any acts of kindness or other types of activities related to the Covid pandemic.
City Council member Kelli Curtis noted that the City Council have been busy with Covid and other topics. She noted that the Council was going to discuss plans for opening parks and recreation facilities at their May 19 meeting.
2. Board Reports
Larry Toedtli, as acting Treasurer, reported that the CHNA had just over $1900 in the CHNA account. He noted that this is approximately $400 less than last August. The decrease was associated with costs for the 2019 Crossing Kirkland event, November 2019 renewal of the web site hosting, and filing of the Washington State Annual Report. These funds will be reimbursed through the City Matching Grant probably near the end of 2020. It is unlikely that additional expenditures will be made for the 2020 Crossing Kirkland event that were planned for in the approved CHNA grant application.
Larry also noted that he had filed the Washington State Annual Report in February and the IRS Form 990 in May, as required as a non-profit.
