SHERRI GILES WELCOMES NEW FACILITIES ENGINEER:
Operations Manager Sherri Giles welcomed new Facilities Engineer Linda Pollari to her first Board meeting. Ms. Giles announced that Pollari, who will be overseeing the management of various projects and maintenance staff, has already proven to be a tremendous help.
SERPENTINE WALL REPAIR:
The Board discussed a resolution to repair five of the property’s serpentine walls. The cost is significant: approximately $142,428, partly because bricks used for these walls are not of a standard size and must be cut to fit. The resolution was passed, with the caveat that Management inquire of the Office of Historic Resources whether some accommodation could be made.
SYCAMORE AVENUE RESTORATION:
The Board heard an update on the Sycamore Avenue restoration project. Some small planting adjustments have been made to accommodate the existing foliage. Planting will begin shortly.
