We have been notified by letter from the Community Development department that $2544 for CDNC salary from the past two years remains unused and that it may be transferred to another account that allows for capital improvements including sidewalks, trees, rehabs, park.  Members were asked by John Downes to bring back suggestions to the next meeting about what those monies should be used for.
