Topic Person(s) Responsible Notes
What are the current safety concerns and plans? Chris Day
Reported sexual assault in the parking structure. A few "smash and grabs"  of items left on car seats reported. Homeless people are cooperative and left campus; resources were provided. Parking will be free of charge; staff to park in staff parking; students in student parking. Discussions about changing the parking pay structure to "pay by space" or "pay by plate." Ongoing lack of Campus Police staffing continues to prevent full services. Office is closed except for fingerprinting on day a week: Tuesdays.
What is the update on the college budget? Koue Vang
HEERF funding ends in April 2022.
What is the update on the COVID-19 process and protocols? Koue Vang
Masks on campus are still required. There are plenty of N95 and paper masks available in Operations. Each area office received 100 masks; all classrooms are stocked with hand sanitizer, masks, and disinfectant wipes. Custodians are on campus from 7:00A to 11:00P misting classrooms after each use.
What is the status of the IT projects? Jeff Bucher
Complaints about the mid week "patching" of laptops have a solution: patching will be done once a month; if security suffers, we will go back to bi-monthly patches. 
What is the status of the facilities projects? Cheryl Sears
Update on the 3 statutes complaint: a meeting for March 1, 2022 with the Operations Director and the Arts Council is scheduled. Track is completely completed!

Question Person(s) Responsible Notes and Next Steps
What are the recommendations from ELT for access to nongendered and/or single-stall restrooms? Cheryl Sears Executive Leadership Team's (ELT) recommendation regarding all-gender single stall restrooms is to bring the issue back to Operations and Student Success Councils for brainstorming on how to receive student input. The Student Design Team will be contacted as two of our student members are on that Team. The PRIDE Center is another resource.
A Facilities Planning Report/Guide for gender neutral restrooms was developed by outside consultant. District should be releasing that report soon. This was the result of meeting over a year ago with Chancellor King, Thomas Greene, Melanie Dixon, all VPs, and Emilie Mitchell on the concern with gender neutral restrooms.
