The following amended language from Article 2.6 (c) and (d) of the Sylvan Park PTO By Laws was approved:
(c) The PTO shall maintain a Reserve Fund equal to 20% of the current fiscal year Operating Expenses (the Budget less earmarked Fundraising Expenses) or $5,000, whichever is greater (the “Reserve Amount”). The Reserve Fund shall be held in interest-bearing account separate from the PTO’s general funds.
i. Any interest from the Reserve Fund may be transferred to the PTO’s general operating account(s) or reinvested.
ii. If the balance of the Reserve Fund exceeds the Reserve Amount for any reason, the Board may elect to transfer the excess to the PTO’s general operating account(s).
ii. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article, the Reserve Fund may be used for expenditures as approved by a Board vote followed by a full PTO vote.
iii. If at any time the Reserve Fund contains less than the Reserve Amount all fundraising earnings except for designated under Article 2.6(b) (Earmarked Funds) shall be deposited in the Reserve Fund until the balance reaches the Reserve Amount.
(d) In addition to the Reserve Fund, the PTO shall strive to preserve a reasonable balance at the end of each fiscal year, to be used by the next year’s PTO as a starting point for the following fiscal year; and,
