      • Recommendation – Need clear direction from Town of Wellington for strategic plan to use DOLA.  Gary made recommendation to not get ahead of ourselves with Ed spending so much time on DDA, until we get more information from the town.  Put work in on grant after we get approvals.
      • Opportunities for 2020 – Vision and Mission plan, Annual work plan, Board of Directors retreat.  Consulting services.  $19,000 not in actual budget.  Grant of $5,000 with a 25% match from town.  Main Streets will have another $5,000 in grants coming.  CIP-Downtown master plan, Utilize UTA plan (town wide, not just Main Streets).  Training – DOLA will come out and do training with the new ED.

      • The cost would be around $6,670, with Earth Works Unlimited.

  • 2020 Budget (10 minutes)
    • Additions need to be made to 2020 Budget – Add the $19,000 Value from DOLA as consulting services and then show it going back out, so it does not affect the bottom line (over/under budget).  Do not show any amount in the Bohemian Foundation Grant as Main Streets does not know if we will get the grant for 2020.  Website/Social Media budget will go down as the website was completed in 2019.  Add $6,670 to budget for the seasonal flowers.
