The November 7, 2017 meeting minutes were approved.
*The chemical inventory and disposal process has been completed.
*Signs with MSDS information, and instructions to access the online MSDS site, are being installed at all chemical storage locations.
*Jeff is searching for 1 or 2 people from each building to train and serve as emergency response managers. Training will occur 3 nights per week and should begin in April.
*Crosswalks: Chief Dove reported that cameras were used to monitor traffic at the crosswalk near the bus stop. No issues with motorists failing to yield right of way to pedestrian traffic were seen. He mentioned that Longwood uses blinking signs to increase driver attention to crosswalks, and suggested that we can install these for an extra layer of security. As in the past, the group talked about problems with speed bumps. Chief said, and others agreed, that the bigger problem is the crossing from lot 6 to Appomattox Hall, and that we should address this first, perhaps with a blinking sign. Jeff will check on the price of these signs.
