1. Call to Order
The meeting was called to order at 3:59 p.m.

2. Discussion regarding Premium Pay for Summer Saturdays and Winter Sundays
The discussion began with a number of comments being made about the value of the premium pay for summer Saturdays and winter Sundays by guests. This discussion raised a number of additional questions related to:
Salary exempt vs. salary non-exempt employees;
The need for additional staff or staff hours;
The creation of a substitute staff to cover the summer Saturdays and winter Sundays; and
The ongoing issue of signage.

After a fairly lengthy discussion it was determined that these were issues that may need further discussion by the entire Board.

Our discussion led to the following motions:

1. All Department Heads will be identified as Exempt Employees as of July 1, 2008. Motion: Sue Werley Second: Ros Stanke Approved.

2. Retain Premium Pay for the winter Sundays and summer Saturdays. Motion: Sue Werley Second: Ros Stanke Approved.

3. Beginning immediately all new hires to the Menasha Public Library will receive Premium Pay only for the winter Sundays. Motion: Sue Werley Second: Ros Stanke Approved.

These three motions will be presented as recommendations to the Board.

4. Adjourn
Motion: Ros Stanke Second: Sue Werley Approved at 5:13 p.m.
