BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS COMMITTEE
MINUTES – June 13, 2017
Deacon Jim Jaworski
The meeting convened at 7:00 PM in Selbert Hall meeting room, opening with the Annunciation Vision Statement and a prayer.
The minutes of May 9 were approved unanimously as written.
Master Plan. Deacon Jim Jaworski conducted a discussion on parts of the Master Plan, specifically a new and improved cemetery, new picnic pavilion and new garage and storage facilities. Deacon Jim Jaworski presented plans for a “ring road” or loop into the cemetery east of the parish office in the approximate area of the existing picnic pavilion. Construction of the road and chapel will require the demolition of the existing storage building, garage and picnic pavilion. Drawings prepared by the architect for new storage buildings and picnic pavilion were presented.
A meeting with nearby residents will be June 15 and a Town Hall meeting for all interested parties is scheduled for June 19 in Selbert Hall.
Roofing. The leak in the hallway outside of the meeting room is still active. Bids to repair and replace this roof (C1) have been received and work will begin shortly. Bids have been received to replace the heating and air conditioning (HVAC) unit on this roof. Both the roofing and HVAC unit will be replaced simultaneously. Next roofs to be completed would be the sacristy and the portico. Our roofing consultant will be involved. Mortar joints in the church brick will need repointing.
Rectory. Windows and patio doors in the rectory are deteriorating. A preliminary estimate has been received for the replacement of six windows on the weather-side of the rectory. Bids will be received in the near future for all rectory windows. Furnace and A/C unit and the roof on the rectory appear to be satisfactory for now. Window replacement should begin in the summer of 2017.
Leach field. Macken Services has inspect the church septic system and leach field and has cleared a blockage in the piping. All seems to be working ok.
Larry Komendat has agreed to chair this committee in the coming year. Thanks, Larry.
Next meeting. September 12, 2017, 7:00 PM. There are no scheduled meetings in July and August.
Meeting adjourned at 8:30 PM.
