1. Update on People Counter: Bazan presented the updated estimate for the People Counter. The updated estimate is at $1375.00. This estimate is higher than expected because the previous model was discontinued. Based on the current estimate and following a discussion with regard to the features of the People Counter, we decided that the motion from the previous month (to spend no more than $800.00) will not work for this purchase . Based on this new information and the estimate, Vote made a new motion to purchase this People Counter in the amount $1375.00, seconded by Gibson. All yes, motion carried.
