Discussion with Vicki Eggers concerning EDA expenditures.  Vicki Eggers, NODA Economic Developer, was present to explain the process of paying expenses and getting reimbursed.

The reimbursement of money should happen within the month of it being turned in for review. Vicki also mentioned there is a new Project Engineer, Millie Hayes.
