In unfinished business, Mr. Kenney addressed the board about the progress being made on the new building. It’s going up very quickly as the weather has, thus far, been on our side. That is about to change, but it’s all good, as everything is framed up and well on it’s way. The board chose the color of the wainscoting, and the floors tonight, so that can be ordered.
New business: In May the board voted to mark the old repeater as surplus and sell it to Arlo, the EMO director for $1, and allow him to assume our FCC licensing for that. He came tonight to request a letter to that effect so he can get things going with the FCC.
