President’s Report: Wayne

  • Meeting Goals: involvement, focus, brevity, consideration, accomplishment


Scott McCall:

—-Marenda hasn’t received the W9 because it needs an LLC number, not a SS


Questioned the floor: structural or surface problems?

How long would he have to fix it?

Apparently he has had someone look at the floor and isn’t as worried.

Winterizing bathrooms: Could insulate the bathrooms and pipes more. Maybe putting space heaters in and check on them throughout the week. (Board explained the pipes outside would be the problem…Scott didn’t really understand, said he’d have to look into it/talk with someone about some more options.)
