The trustees agreed to check on price and compare to what we are paying before the second mowing. We also noted that the dehumidifier was not keeping up with the meeting room during the summer months.  The floor was staying wet and needed attention.  We will watch carefully. Trustee Schwartzenberger stated that the McKean website is now being reworked and should be up and running in a few days.

With no further business before the board, motion to adjourn by Trustee Schwartzenberger, seconded Trustee Wintermute, all agreed.
