The word "made" should be added so that the <br />sentence reads "Member Frissell said while this may satisfy the situation when the property is sold, what <br />is the mechanism when payments have not been made establishing a fund for system repairs?" <br />Commissioner Huntingford moved to approve the minutes of May 17,2001 as corrected. <br />Member Masci seconded the motion, which carried by a unanimous vote. <br /> <br />OLD BUSINESS <br /> <br />.Jefferson Health Access Summit 2001: Dr. Tom Locke noted that the meeting summary for this well- <br />attended event was provided in the agenda packet. He believes the next step will include the original <br />workgroup polling participants to plan a follow-up summit, which would focus on specific proposals, <br />associated costs, legal authorities, and other issues. In other words, moving from issues to solutions. <br /> <br />Member Masci noted that a common thread among the Summit workgroup was the idea of a community <br />clinic. He proposed that since this subject keeps surfacing, the Board of Health may want to make a <br />statement of support or a directive to look into it. <br /> <br />Vice-Chairman Westerman said while the subject of common elements from the summit workgroups <br />could be a Board agenda topic, it may be premature to make a statement of support. <br />
