Special Congregational Meeting

Special Congregational Meeting at 12:30 pm on 9/19 to Approve A Revised Capital Budget
In the past month, several unanticipated capital expenses have surfaced:
  • the air conditioning in the church office and in the ministers’ offices is failing,
  • the sewer pipe from the outdoor bathrooms is broken,
  • the grand piano in the main hall requires unexpectedly expensive refurbishing,
  • and the cost of several items of deferred maintenance is much greater than anticipated.

The total cost of dealing with these issues exceeds the amount that the Board can authorize on our own. We are, thus, asking the congregation to approve a revised capital budget at a special, virtual congregational meeting at 12:30 pm on Sunday, September 19, just after the end of coffee hour after the second service. While the numbers are preliminary at this time, we expect to ask the congregation to approve an additional $86,000 in capital spending, making the total capital budget $283,000 instead of the originally approved $197,000.

All lifetime members and members who have made a donation of record in the past thirteen months are eligible to vote at the meeting, which will be held via a special ZOOM link. If you would like to attend the meeting but are not eligible to vote, you may watch on UUCPA’s Facebook Live. We expect the meeting to take approximately half an hour
