Voting Item: Metalshop team budgets

The current metalshop team operational budgets were created at the creation of the team, but never were approved through a team meeting. I’d like to vote to approve 3 budgets for the team:

  1. Discretionary
    $100 reset monthly. Can be used at the discretion of the metalshop team leader for the purposes of keeping the metalshop running.

  2. Consumables
    $300 reset monthly. Can only be used to purchase consumables for equipment managed by the metalshop team.

  3. Repair Budget
    $1000 once off. Can be used to purchase parts for metalshop machine repairs. Renewal of this budget must be performed through a team meeting.

While a maximum spend is allocated to each budget, actual availability of funds will be dependant upon accrual of funds from general funds. Currently the metalshop receives $350/month from general funds.
