Summary of Green Team Meeting – September 4, 2010

1-Cut/Trim the cottonwood tree near the cabin – The team undecided about what to do.  Either leave as is and benefit from shade or cut back both remaining main limbs and hope that tree will “bush” out. 

2-Asphalt road repair – Inspection shows that an armor coat of adhesive and crushed rock may be all that is needed to get several more years of service before  implementing the estimated $35,000 overlay work.
Action – Get cost estimate for armor coating.
Teresa is concerned about the cement that is coming up by the house being a safety issue. Will someone take a look at that?

3-House window repairs – Leonard will check to see if Oblates qualify for federal grant for weatherproofing the house.

4-House kitchen roof leak – Remains a problem since the former porch area may be settling away from the house.
