MINUTES OF THE MEETING

BOARD OF TRUSTEES

At the Trustees' meeting on July 14, 1960, the Board authorized the development of plans for an intramural building project for Michigan State University-Oakland to cost not to exceed $1,600,000 to be financed on a self-liquidating basis through segregation of a portion of the student fee. The plans have been developed and submitted to contractors for bids which will be received about September 26. It is now necessary to finalize plans for financing this structure. Mr. Varner and Mr. May discussed the arrangements.

On motion by Mr. Harlan, seconded by Mr. Huff, it was voted to approve proceeding with the construction of this building if the total costs, including architects' fees, necessary site, furnishings, etc. do not exceed $1,600,000. If, when the bids are taken, this budget can be met, it is understood that Mr. May will telephone each Board member and upon the approval of a majority, he will be empowered to authorize the beginning of construction. The officers of the University are directed to work out, in cooperation with Mr. Cress, the required financing covering this project and the addition to the Student Service Building in the sum of approximately $700,000.
