Backstop: Roger contacted Auburn fence, we need to give them a 2 week notice when ready to install. Wayne & Roger staked out location. Glen to contact Chip to see if he can meet Wayne on site.

Entrance drive:  Wayne put up 3 no parking signs to hopefully keep people from pulling off drive onto the grass.

 Electric to shelter: Glen received a letter of proposal from RAM construction to run electric to the shelter as follows:

Labor and material:    $2,500

Install 100 amp meter, main panel utility pole with subpanel, 600’ of cable from meter to subpanel, ground flood light by rock                      $6500.00

Install 100’ of conduit $275.00

Permits                       $150.00

Total                          $9425.00 

Discussion followed with the following: 

-we need 200 amp service not 100,

 -questions arose in difference in price from what Roger was quoted.

-where will panel go near the road or in the woods (woods preferred as out of site)

- Can a small panel be put by rock with a quick disconnect?

 Glen to contact RAM for clarification. 

Retention basin: Glen waiting until Tracy Jameson’s Commissioner position has been filled to procede with appeal process. 

Pavilion lights: Wayne researched different types of lights and recommends mini fluorescent, they are duable and less expensive. Entrance: 

Rock landscaping: Wayne asked if Trustees can send thank you to Ironwood Landscaping for taking care of their plantings around the rock. Mark has some leftover sealer he hopes to put on rock before winter sets in. 

Rt 87 and Auburn Corner:  Glen stated that the American Legion has acquired a 50 ton tank and is looking for a place to put it. Would need 2 30” deep concrete pads under each track. Need conceptual plan of what corner will look like. Trustees support putting it at the corner, maybe including a water feature.  Would like a recommendation on how to use the property, including moving the flags from across the street. Roger would like a plat of the corner property to draw on
