2) Discuss Winhall Withdrawal Costs: Ms. Ameen stated the Executive Board met with the Town of Winhall Selectboard on April 4th to discuss their outstanding balance for withdrawal costs in the amount of $7,024.60. Ms. Ameen stated the Selectboard, in Executive Session, voted to pay the full amount owed, but requested they pay the withdrawal costs in FY 2020 so they could budget the funds. Ms. Ameen noted the Town of Winhall had a surplus of over $700,000 in FY 2018. Ms. Zboray suggested an agreement drawn up by legal counsel reflecting the payment terms, at the Town of Winhall’s expense. The Executive Board discussed Winhall’s withdrawal payment. The Executive Board agreed to recommend accepting the Town of Winhall’s offer to pay the full withdrawal amount of $7,024.60 as soon as possible (preferably by June 30, 2018), and if not, the District would have a legal agreement, prepared at the Town of Winhall’s expense, to detail the payment terms.
