Building and Grounds
Director Wittmann advised that a portion of the landscaping can be done by Anne Roberts Gardens, Inc. at a cost up to $25,000.
Director Wittmann recommends doing the most visual impact items, including birch trees, winter berry plantings, the parking lot islands, and the gravel path on the south side of the building through the pollinator garden. These can all be done before the first frost. Tree like structures will be planted in the parking lot islands. Director Wittmann recommends issuing an RFP for planting perennials in the spring.

A motion was made by Trustee Ross seconded by Trustee Rothbart to adjourn.

The Committee Meeting was adjourned at 7:23 P.M.
