Vice President Adams said under “Sales Tax”, Gina Cobb did go to Phoenix, but he said he went also. Under “Guest”, Vice President Adams was not tasked to talk to Jean regarding website. Under “Academy of Building Industries”, it’s under state law, not Federal law, and the law states “physical education at schools”, not must have gym. Also, they do not need “temporary buildings”. All were in favor. Motion passed.

Mr. Gallant said he is on the Board of Bullhead City/Mohave Valley Association of Realtors. He’s hoping that the Contractors and the Realtors can work together to bring people to Bullhead City.
Carey Fearing said that she can build a website and use a splash simple page. We have different options to use. Question was asked if we could put brochure on the website. How many buttons can we get on the website? Ms. Fearing said we could get up to four buttons. Discussion was held on what we all want on the website. Ms. Fearing will be checking up on this. Vice President Adams said he will follow up with the Mayor to get more brochures. He said we still have 7,000 old brochures left.
Senior & Winter Visitor Expo
Director Lopez-Rajaniemi said that the Senior & Winter Visitor Expo will be held February 10, 2017, from 8am to 1pm inside the Mohave High School gym.
