At its Aug. 15 meeting, FHC’s Executive Board approved a motion to retain Northwest Asphalt (the street contractors for the pavement management plan) for a “patch and smear” repair to the parking lot for $1,000.
The board also approved a motion to accept a bid from Peterson Brothers Roofing and getting that work done as soon as possible. The bid is for $15,500. There are many issues with the roof around the whole building, and keeping water out is likely the No. 1 priority. The board agreed to move the chimney repair to 2024 instead of 2023.
In other business, the board:
Heard from Patti Hoffman regarding the successful children’s camp in June, planning for next year, the need for more volunteer or staff labor, and other issues.
Discussed the need to determine how much clear or hard funding exists for 2024 property improvements, the need to come up with a number to inform the 2024 budget, the need for long-term planning about how much money might be needed for future property improvements, and efforts to obtain such funds. A tentative brainstorm item was added to the September agenda. Efforts are underway to find a working group to discuss those issues this fall, with the group’s work to be completed by the end of the year or shortly after a long working session.
