SFBC Minutes - Jan. 15, 2009

Members present: Gary D'Agostino, Sonja Aikens, Jason Arp, Ginni Delevan, Jeff Donahue, Jennifer McNeil, Marilyn Ponti and David Sprunger.

 

Minutes of the December 8, 2008 meeting were approved and the floor was open for old business.

Jason Arp presented his findings regarding posting of vacation/sick hour balances in response to a continuants concern.  He noted that most problems involving balances that are close to or at the allowable limits and therefore losing time is a result of late monthly payroll sheet submission by supervisors.

The Committee's notice to the President's Council regarding member's terms of service was reviewed, corrected and ratified.  Dag will rewrite and submit a final draft to the council.

In new business, David asked for a list of items the committee will require to be posted on the SFBC website.  Six points were identified, put forward and will be included in regular website updates.

Sonja will place a notice in the Fountain once David has updated the website, requesting that any staff member with a benefit issue/concern/suggestion etc. use the electronic form available on our website to submit that to us. Or they can submit it directly to their budget representative. 

Jeff will serve as the sites coordinator for the requests and present them to the committee.  After brief discussion, the Committee agrees that all requests shall be followed up on with a response from the Committee to the concerned party regarding the status of the issue.

A review of the ‘cash in lieu' program was tabled, after brief discussion, until March.

The Committee tasked Dag with requesting a copy of the recent Baker Ferguson Fitness Center users' survey from the Athletic Director for review.

The meeting was adjourned at 2:15 p.m.

Next SFCB meeting: Thursday, February 5, 2009 at 1:15 p.m.
