However, a number of different fac-tors—some regulatory and some Board initiated—are still under study and so we cannot detail a proposed budget in this article. How-ever, we can tell you that these factors probably combine in a proposed budget that has the operating assessment increasing by about 10%. We do not expect a change in the Reserve Assessment. The Media assessment will be higher as there is a smaller credit to mem-bers from Summit relative to service issues. We need to give special thanks to staff and to the Audit and Budget Committee who put so much thought and effort into this process. A&B met on June 22-23 with the full Board attending their sessions. An exhaus-tive review took place of a draft budget that had been prepared by staff includ-ing almost every aspect of our operations. The A&B Committee met again in July and the Board will meet in a workshop on August 2nd. Depending on those discussions, the 2017 Budget is expected to be posted for membership review on August 5th. It should be formally voted on by the Board at the regularly scheduled Board meeting on August 19, 2016. > Prevent Mosquito Bites These tips are timely and critical due to Zika and other mosquito-borne illnesses.
