Discussion Notes


Alex is taking care of the dog of Veronica. The dog has been barking and pooping in some part of the shop. The discussion is about Alex and the dog belonging to the space or not.

  • Johny: has seen the dog barking, snapping at people. Alex has been very defensive against myself and Leif about taking the dog out;
  • Monad agrees with Johny;
  • Alex: I'm not familiar with the dog snapping at anybody, the dog didn't bite anybody. I always stay close to the dog, and in the worst case I tie the dog up;
  • Kevin: this discussion should not be happening, there is a policy that says if somebody feels threatened by the dog, then the dog shouldn't be here;
  • Ryan: If the behavior of the dog is taken care of, then I think a ban is not the appropriate reaction.
  • Jake: Non-service dogs don't bring anything to Noisebridge.


James Sundquist: We moved 1.5ton of stuff out of the kitchen, money used to dump things out and buy new stuff needs to be expensed.

This will be discussed at the next meeting.
