Building and Improvement Committee Report:

Norm Salisbury reported that the committee is continuing its work in investigating the source of the water entering through some window frames during violent storms. The committee has conducted some water testing and has been in contact with the manufacturer of the windows. Some defects in installation have been detected and the committee is making arrangements to have these corrected at a relatively minor cost. A full report will be presented at the next meeting.

The committee recommends a request be communicated to the Parking Board that the Plaza flags which are tattered and torn, be replaced. If the flags are to remain up overnight, they must be lighted. We have had lighting in the past and it needs to be repaired and functioning.

Design Committee Report:

It was reported that the South Tower roof is now completed with the exception of some electrical lighting and outlets that need to be installed. The completion of the North roof continues to be delayed as we continue to resolve the problem of some water leakage into unit 2603N and the installation of a protective cover between our roof membrane and the deck in the area of the previous sport court. A soundproof wall in front of the cooling tower has been contracted and will soon be under way, after which we can begin construction of the arbor. New lighting and electrical outlets will also be installed similar to that which is to done on the South Roof.

Finance Committee

The Board formally appointed the Finance Committee of Trustee Larry Shelton, Shinika Sykes, and Willard Homer to serve as the Finance Committee which had already met on October 9th.
