  • Executive Director Report:
    • Roof Replacement: Due to its age and condition, the CSPPA roof is in need of replacement.  Estimates thus far indicate a cost range of $30,000 – $50,000. Information sufficient to select a roofer should be presented at the November board meeting.
    • Tree Removal: After seeking estimates to deadwood and clearance prune the large elm in the parking lot, it was learned that the tree has significant disease.  After discussing estimates and option, the Board agreed to have the tree removed.
    • Municipal Courthouse Gym:  Estimates to repair the Stairmaster ranged from $400 – $800.  As $500 has already been spent on the machine, it was decided to remove the Stairmaster.  A replacement will be sought via donation.
