Minutes from September 2, 2014 Meeting
Lynn County Hospital – Tahoka, Texas
5:25 pm Quorum Present: Dee Dee Pridmore, Julia Allen, Frances Truehart and Shannon Lawson
Three member of the Tahoka Little League presented a proposal for the ACT board to help with creating a new baseball field at the baseball complex located on south 8th St. They stated the current field does not meet league requirements for major league games. They currently have to travel to every major league game. If built, the field could host games and tournament play. Julia was going to email them some forms to complete for the requested money. They stated that to date they have had someone donate the dirt work and part of the labor on the laying of the grass. We discussed some possible grants that could also help. The ACT board looks forward to seeing their proposal.
Meeting was called to order and Julia led the invocation. The minutes were unanimously approved as presented.
Financial report showed a balance of $141,795.62.
