House by fire department on December 7 House tested for asbestos was none. Bids to tear down footing and some dirt work. Have to wait 30 days after the burn before we can do anything. Shot area agra lime in landing area original plan. This district wanted red shale which looked better. Use by many schools and felt it was a good product. No one though it would blow out as bad as it did. No one fault. When went from agra lime to shale we did not incurre the difference in cost. Shale has been removed this summer. Will be replaced with washed limestone chips. Have we looked at relocating. The expense will be to cover the hole in the field. We have been getting the bids for the washed limestone. Cannot drive the truck across the track. Lisa and Andy would like to here all options to move it out.

Brackets are rusting away need to fix or remove. Could do this as it breaks. The press box rotten sides and patched last fall. This summer will take siding off to know how much damage. Lighting poles very old. We have had lights fall. Take light down and poles. Just look to see what need to do. Only used for pe and practice. Andy remove the the liability issues, take lights out and maintain only what we need to make it a safe place since we have students in the facility. When we take the press box out we lose electricity. Boilers at middle school new in 06 and had to have a backup to fuel oil. This fall Johnson Control had not ran it on fuel oil for six years.
