MINUTES OF THE MEETING
of the
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
March 21, 1968

Communication from Vice President May, dated February 22, 1968:

Yesterday when Mr. Cress was in the office, he presented a bill for work in connection with financing of residence halls at Oakland University. As you know, for many years the Ann Arbor Trust Company has charged a fee of 3/8 % of 1% for its services, and this amount has been approved on a number of occasions by our Trustees.

The bill presented yesterday covers the $4,000,000 construction loan originally negotiated in December 1965. In 1966 the Trust Company obtained an extension of the loan for one year. In 1967 it negotiated a two-year loan which must be refunded prior to December 1969. Because of the extra work in arranging the above loans, the Trust Company has proposed that its fee in this case be set at &frac12 of 1% for both the temporary and long-term financing.

I would recommend that the Trustees approve a fee of ½ of 1% which allows the Ann Arbor Trust Company at 1/8 of 1% fee for all construction and temporary financing.

On motion by Mr. Merriman, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was voted to approve the above recommendation.

Mr. Varner reported on and discussed a Civil Rights project he proposes for the City of Pontiac, and also discussed the prospects for enrollment in the fall of 1968.

Mr. Hartman requested that Mr. Varner and Mr. Carr present a brief statement of the early history of Oakland University and its relationship to Michigan State University at the May meeting.
