Building & Grounds

Met June 20th

  • Drinking fountain on the public restroom building in James Street Plaza is out of order. Committee recommended to replace with a new fountain. 
  • We received an update from the property owners on the south side of the 100 block of Ludington Avenue. They are meeting this month to finalize their project plans to submit for a grant. 
  • Update on street pot plantings. The Garden Club purchased Seedam, Pennisetum Grass and potting soil and donated their time to plant the pots. Looks great!
  • Budget update.
