Appropriation for the New Observatory

by Michael Wright, Secretary

At the July 9, 2013 Board meeting, the Board unanimously approved the following motion:

The Board of Trustees recommends that $12,000 of AAAP’s reserves be appropriated for construction of the new observatory structure at Washington-Crossing State Park including electrical work and permit fees.

For more information on the plans for the new observatory, see the July 9, 2013 Board meeting minutes in the mid-summer Sidereal Times.

A vote on this motion will be taken at the September 10, 2013 business meeting following the monthly lecture. According to AAAP’s by-laws, this expenditure must be approved by a majority of the votes cast and not less than 30% of the paid membership. The Board urges all members to attend and vote affirmatively on the recommendation.
