Public Comment

John Wade asked if the electric sign was fixed. The sign dealer replaced the computer and other parts to make sure there is no more problems. We have to purchase a backup battery to keep it on when we have bad weather and light outages. The District now has a local person to contact for repairs. He had a question regarding the phone numbers for the District in case of an emergency. James will be looking into this matter.

Engineers Report

Engineer Ron Bavarian reported that Matt and R & B contractors have been working with the vendors on the issue with some of the brick, seems the chemical used to wash the brick stained some. The vendor is working on cleaning up this issue. This is the last thing on the list to be done. Mark up plan is coming along well. The big question is the retainer. How much damage Bacliff has to pay, prolonging construction has raised Engineers cost and other expenses.
