General Business :

Peter is to check whose responsibility it is to pay the $600 demolition fee at the old site. The stump holes have to be filled in. Susie has completed the ramp plans and these are to be given to Peter.

The asbestos certificate is to come from Burke industries.

Charmaine is to inform Peter how the building will be fixed to the stumps.

Taylors arranged to have the power disconnected. The water will have to be disconnected.

We are hopeful that the building will be shifted in the near future.

Peter is to write a report for the magazine and he will make an appeal for more members.

The building will be situated 5.4 metres from the footpath and 1.5 metres from the side fence.

After discussion it was decided to attach the ramp along the front of the building so that the ramps will be facing one another.

There was not as much asbestos as they thought. It was mainly in the kitchen, bathroom and lino. The building is now clean of asbestos.

Peter pulled the hinge off the bathroom door and he would like an old hinge to replace it.

Russell Hill's son will remove the cladding from the building.

The next meeting will be on June 17th which will be the 3rd Monday in June at 12 noon.
