UPUA Funds Movin’ On ‘Quench Buggy’ Water Cart

The 16th Assembly of the University Park Undergraduate Association met Wednesday night for yet another regularly scheduled weekly meeting.

UPUA President Erin Boas and Vice President Najee Rodriguez welcomed the assembly, provided individual reports, and quickly moved on to new business.

The first item on the agenda was the confirmation and swearing-in of four newly elected UPUA representatives. Isabella Briseno began her term as the executive director of environmental sustainability, while Elliot Copeland was confirmed as an at-large representative. Next, Micaela Zelinsky and Hayden D’Elena were both confirmed and sworn in as associate justices of the assembly.

The assembly then began discussing Bill #23-16, which proposed that UPUA fund a “Quench Buggy” for this year’s Movin’ On music festival. The Quench Buggy is essentially a mobile water cart that would provide potable water to the IM Fields throughout the music festival.

The assembly unanimously approved the bill, which will provide $1,750 to procure a Quench Buggy for the festival.

The final piece of legislation on the agenda was Bill #24-16. The bill, presented by At-Large Representative Hope Steger, asked the assembly to provide funding for five gallons of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee to be served at the Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention Roundtable. The roundtable is scheduled for 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on January 31 in HUB 233A, and it will consider campus solutions to sexual violence. The requested $40 in funding passed unanimously.
