? HVAC Proposal: need a new system. We have three, one will be fine (might need
a little maintenance), second is ok (1-2 years), third is no good. Discussion of
replacing third, or adding splits. Dan – ducting might be some work. Christina asked
about funds to repair/replace, and mentioned if tenants are paying rent they ought
to be able to use the conference room. Matt suggested investing in
repairing/replacing necessary units, rather than going with a split – should be
deferred maintenance. Sandy: could be selling point to have upgrade. Dan
mentioned there are some upgrade options such as individualized room control.
Window units could be an immediate remedy for tenants. Matt moves to install
window units as an immediate/temporary remedy while we explore large
maintenance/improvement not to exceed $1000. Seconded by Sandy. Motion
