The following items are on the back burner until money is available:

1) fixing the railing in front of the church—Barry is working with a guy about possible solution

2) need to look at the condition of the front doors of the sanctuary and possibly replace.

3) wall along the side walk of the parsonage needs to be addressed

Boiler up keep--- inspector had two suggestions that he thought Lyons should look into

  1. replace cracked boiler cover.
  2. install four way joints so pipes could be cleaned

Lyons has been into look at what the inspector talked about. Lyons is going to contact the inspector.

The side metal doors need work (rusting at the bottom (old handicapped door and the gym door)

The Sanctuary Light dimmer panel is not working, Dave Krum is working on it.

Two companies have been in to look at the possibility of installing air conditioning in the auditorium. Cost of this project will be done through fund raising and if cost is reasonable. Still waiting for quotes.

Three bells in the tower were not operating. Elderhorst came in when the weather broke and fixed all three at a cost of around $620.

Also received a bill for $800 from Lyons for a service call back in February. Ted is taking care of it. He was told by a Lyon’s rep that we did not have to pay this bill.

A motion was made by Dave and Second by Ted to find someone to fix the flashing on the Sanctuary slate roof around the tower and over the old office entrance. Also have Woody look at the ceiling in the tower stairwell to see how we can fix it.
