Maintenance Director Cde Gord Deprez reported that the Hall doors are waiting on a firm delivery date, so the completion date given last meeting may be incorrect, depending on delivery date. If the doors are not going to be completed by Quarry Days, we will wait until after.The BBQ storage shed is working out well. The shed for recyclables is big enough, but boxes etc. should be cut down before being placed in it.
