Property Committee Minutes for Wednesday, July 11, 2018 in the Brooks Cope Room of the church

Meeting started at 7:03 p.m.   All Motions passed unanimously unless noted.

Minutes approved from June meeting

Attendance: John Lopata, chairman; Ted Smith, Barry Fisher, Ken Miller, Dave Koch and Sy Kipp

Also: Merle Gerstenberg, custodian

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) Barry is trying to address the issue with the wall along the side walk of the parsonage waiting to hear from Slaw’s

Barry is still replacing the light bulbs with new LED bulbs. Another order has been placed.

Merle put a coat of paint on the side doors and sanded the rust.

The Sanctuary Light dimmer panel Dave Krum is working on it.

Reminder that the golf tournament is August 11th.

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; if cost is reasonable. Still waiting for quotes. No new updates

The motion to have the sanctuary roof fixed passed consistory and Romano has it on his schedule for around the second week of August. In the meantime, the tower stairway is closed off for safety reasons until the plaster ceiling is fixed.

We will be asking Romano if he could repoint the chimney while he is working on the roof.

Sy is going to fix the glass tubes on the boiler that is leaking.

Barry and Denny Blocker will be doing a walk through of the parsonage on August 9th.

By the fall property will work on repainting the Gallery Ceiling.

The committee looked at the water issue from heavy down pours and came up with some solutions. Barry is going to try and make the outside hand rail more sturdy.

Meeting adjourned at 7:48 p.m.   (Motion Ken & Ted)

Next meeting will be July 11, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.
