The board will review what is needed and any other ramifications for such support and vote on it at the November board meeting.

Phyllis Ingram reported the Town of Harris received a letter from attorney Kubasta on behalf of his clients; Greg Miller and Corey McChesney. Phyllis suggested the HPLA delay the vote for the use of fund raiser money for fireworks, until our February 2015 board meeting.
