 Board members discussed future meeting times and locations but no decision was made, the board will call a special meeting for its next meeting.

 The locations discussed were Pioneer Technology Center in Ponca City and also a number of churches in Newkirk.  Kubik said he would have a report on meeting locations at the next meeting.
