  1. Goal 8 Second Reading & Recommendation

·       Draft Goal 8 statement distributed.  First reading approved now looking for approval on second reading.  Moved/Evers; Second by Schultz; Passed to approve sending draft Goal 8 language to Board for second reading with the following change:


o        Discussion:  Verbiage should read as follows:  Develop and implement a District-wide facilities plan which encompasses the design, construction (including furnishings and equipment), renovation and major scheduled maintenance of College facilities that support programs and enhance student and employee success.


  1. Process for Prioritizing Capital Projects



  1. Board Agenda Review


o        On May 31st College Council thoroughly discussed the various aspects of the Fremont Police Department proposal as well as other options of campus police and security.  The College Council’s recommendation to the College President is that the District not go further in negotiating with Fremont Police to conduct a study or to otherwise provide direct on campus safety and security services.  College Council was unanimous in its belief that the campus is well served under the current model; that the College should initiate recruitment for a new Chief, Safety and Security (with the current job description).

o        Bond Measure A Oversight Committee members are to be ratified following the Board’s decision at the May 24, 2006 Board meeting to accept all candidates who interviewed with the Board subcommittee.  First meeting with this group will be on June 19, 2006.


o        Questions need to be answered – people raising the questions seek to get them answered.  This list needs to be sifted through – this issue will be brought forward at the Council Retreat.  Dr. Treadway suggested that Council members identify the top 3 or 4 issues/questions they’d like to discuss further at the August 24 retreat.
