Support Services Meeting Notes
October 13, 2008

Present: Bill Covey, Will Chaney, Lori Driscoll, Erich Kesse, Rob Roberts
  1. Ventilation in the east end bathrooms in Library West - electrician says it's not wired. Marcus is checking on it.
  2. Loading dock door in MSL is working.
  3. Brad is out.
  4. Facilities work on the Homecoming parade stuff is done - the hitch is on the truck.
  5. General access to conference and training rooms in West - still under discussion by the Directors.
  6. Lighting - PPD wants to save energy when West is closed. We need to get statistics. The window between the time we close and the time the cleaning crews get here is quite small. There isn't really much to improve upon. This is tied in with Responsibility Centered Management: change backs, utilities.
