How the Funds are Used

The treasurer prepares a monthly Profit and Loss statement and has it available at all board meetings. The treasurer also prepares a proposed operating budget in late winter, which is adjusted by the board and made available to all pool members in attendance at the annual spring meeting, or upon request following the annual meeting.

General maintenance or repair items are discussed at the board meetings (or via email if they are critical), and approved as necessary. When feasible, additional quotes are received prior to approval of a contractor. Improvement items and ideas for future investments are raised by board members, or by pool members via email or in discussion with individual board members, and are discussed and prioritized at board meetings. Costs for these items are estimated, and when funds are available, further investigation is conducted and plans are made.

The board maintains a level of savings (i.e., “Capital Account”) to provide for major repairs, or to handle the removal of the facility in the unlikely event that the pool should shut down. The funding for this Capital Account is provided by the monopole rent (which is also used to supplement the operating budget). The Capital Account was depleted in 2008 when we undertook an infrastructure upgrade, and is being rebuilt.
