Board decided to delay payment of current Yard bill for basement unit repairs until we determine whether or not we will be replacing the unit. Lisa will get several bids on replacing the basement unit and we will determine the best option: repair or replace. Yard bill will be settled at that time.
Dennis Umberger determined there is structural repair needed to cracks in the foundation. Board approved having Dennis do the repairs.
