  • John Rocha was voted in as Chair and Jennifer Dowdy as Recorder. 
  • Facilities has finished a MS4 project behind Merritt Hall that corrected detention pond drainage issues that were caused by tree growth and a blocked drainage path.  Facilities had a contractor clear the area, address the drainage issues, and rebuild and lay sod on the bank.  The sod is currently being watered so there are still hoses in that area.
  • The Merritt Hall roof replacement project is scheduled to begin in mid-October.  Access for the roof is on the 2nd floor, but the contractor is planning to access the roof from the exterior of the building. The only issue we are aware of, at this time, with this project will be the noise.  We may need to move faculty recording classes and classes taking place in 5219 to rooms on the first floor.  Facilities will meet with the contractor on September 21, 2020 and Cindy and Jeff will be provided a final timeline for work to be completed once it is scheduled.  Linda will run a class schedule for Cindy and she will let us know if any faculty/class moves will need to be made.  Jeff will have access cards issued from the Library for the contractors needing access to the building during the project. The service road will be closed off to Faculty parking, and they will be asked to park in lot #4 instead. The project is expected to take at least a month to complete.   
  • The cooling tower between Campbell Hall and Framatome is scheduled to be replaced in the near future, but a timetable for the work has not yet been determined. The drawings are currently in the review stages, then the project will go out for bid. The hope is to have the work completed before the Spring of 2021. We will work with any classes to keep the disruption as minimal as possible.
  • The Bedford Hall roof is on the list for replacement in the future.
  • The Amherst and Campbell renovations have been delayed another year.  Facilities will revisit this for 2021-2022.
  • Our Next Meeting will be October 27, 2020 at 1pm
