Constituent Concerns
Ms. Woodall expressed a constituent’s concern over parking availability when the General Services Building accommodates a relocating department. Mr. Holland said there should be minimal impact because of the small number of additional employees working in the building.

Ms. Frederick reported the need for additional signage at a crosswalk near Clayton Hall. Mr. Holland will relay this to James Grimes, Public Safety.

Ms. Williams asked if performance appraisals would be available electronically in the near future. Mr. Holland expressed his hope that this will become a reality by 2007-08.

Committee Representative Elections
Krista Urbaniak and Sue Wooler were elected to serve on the Grievance Advisory Committee.

Virginia Thomas will serve on the Parking Committee.

Parking Committee Report
(Submitted by Mayra Focht)

Meeting 2/16/2006

There are 38 new spaces in north Campus across from the hotel; there are 16 additional spaces by George Read Building.

Not all of the allocated spaces at the CFA (Center for the Arts) Parking Garage have been sold. Of 170 staff spaces allocated, there are 70 open. Of 250 student spaces allocated, there are 124 open.

There is a new form for online citation payments named e-park. Go to http://www.udel.edu/PublicSafety/parkingservices.htm.

Unpaid parking citations are now being sent to collections. About 17% of these have been collected.

There is a need for undergraduate students and faculty to serve on the Parking Appeals Board.

The rise in the fees is mainly due to the fact that the projected revenue from the garages seems higher than the actual revenue coming in and the rising fuel costs of the transportation department.
