These funds were originally established in terms of fixed dollar amounts per year. They include: a Director's Research Fund ($10,000 per year, established by RESOLUTION 2000-12), a Director's Discretionary Fund for the benefit of WIYN ($20,000 per year, established by RESOLUTION 2000-12), and an Instrumentation Initiatives Fund ($20,000 per year from the Investment Accounts, established by RESOLUTION 2001-10). The Board hereby approves that all these allocations be subject to the standard 5% annual increases applied to all other operations and development funds, effective beginning in WIYN fiscal year 2003.

RESOLUTION 2002-09: The WIYN Board of Directors, on behalf of the Consortium, expresses its gratitude and appreciation for the service contributions of DR. KENT HONEYCUTT. Kent served as a founding member of the Board from 1990 through 2002. Kent's deep technical expertise and vision for an astronomical facility provided a profound basis for the design and construction of what has been called the best large imaging telescope on the North American continent. Kent brought his invaluable instrumental and observing experience to bear in addressing issues of site selection, telescope design, and instrument complement. He is indefatigable in pursuing and maintaining the support of his administration and potential funding sources. He played a key role in telescope commissioning, and applied his talents to production of vital focal plane.
