Finances - from Jack McMichaels via Dave. We have preliminary numbers from 2005, and so far they look good. We have $39,496 more in our accounts than we did at this time last year, and it looks like we finished 2005 well in the black. Bob volunteered to help investigate methods to allow easier access to funds for timely payment of IJA obligations. We still need a volunteer to find better ways to manage funds.
