Unfinished Business

   Bluevale Hall Generator –

  • Barry Shaw feels that this is a very serious issue.
  • Even if you fix the lid of the Generator, the ice from the Roof of the Bluevale Hall is still an issue.
  • Nancy Michie is going to take the Generator issue to the Emergency Planning Committee Meeting in September, 2011.  See if the committee will apply for JEPP funding for a stand alone generator.
  • Barry Shaw suggested moving a new generator to the back of the Bluevale Hall to get past the ice falling from the Roof.
  • A stand alone generator does not need to be covered, it has its own cover/protection.
  • Gary Pipe is going to get some prices for Nancy to take to the Emergency Planning committee.   Take the Generator supplier to Bluevale Hall to show what is needed and for them to give a better idea of a price for a stand alone generator for the location.
  • See if a trade in on the current generator at the Bluevale Hall is a  possibility.
