Burgess: do we have a forwarding address for Tim if he really did move out? We don't know for sure if Tim is moving out or not.
Paul: we can now walk all the way around the coop!
Ryan: solar installers could happen, got a ball park quote for this unit (the commons), $45,000, we could potentially put down a $10,000 down payment for something like this. We have tools and moneys to help us lower some costs.
Corey: Rebecca called the fire dept. N o gas now, we have had a leak by the main on the southwest corner, we have to hire a plumber to come fix leaks, have to do the pressure test, if we pass they turn the gas back on. Corey dug up the pipe and could see where the leak was occurring. Good benefit of this gas fiasco, we'll figure out if there are any other leaks, we know how to shut off the gas now, we will not blow up, we will save some money.
Cynthia: cleaning, we spent all that money for bed bugs and stuff, we need to keep things clean, wash our clothes, keep out the bugs!!
