BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS COMMITTEE
MINUTES – April 11, 2017
The meeting convened at 7:00 PM in Selbert Hall meeting room, opening with the Annunciation Vision Statement and a prayer.
The minutes of February 14 were approved unanimously. Due to inclement weather, there was no meeting in March.
Master Plan. A lengthy discussion ensued on pieces of the Master Plan, specifically a new picnic pavilion, garage and storage area. It is now envisioned that these buildings would be located on the soccer field on Girdle Rd. Bill Markowski presented sketches showing a suggested layout of these buildings. Bill will revise his sketches taking into consideration some of the ideas presented at this meeting. A presentation by the Master Plan architects had been held on March 29.
Roofing and masonry. The leak in the hallway outside of the meeting room is still active. Bids to repair and replace this roof (C1) have been received. The apparent low bidder is Sahlem’s Roofing. Bids will be received in early May to replace the heating and air conditioning (HVAC) unit on this roof. Both the roofing and HVAC unit should be replaced simultaneously. Next roofs to be completed would be the sacristy and the portico. Our roofing consultant will be involved. Roofs on the school building, gym and parish office are believed to be satisfactory.
Mortar joints in the church brick will need repointing.
Windows in the meeting room are leaking and are not air tight. The committee will look further into this.
Rectory. Windows and patio doors in the rectory are showing signs of deterioration. One bid has been received for the replacement of six windows on the weather-side of the rectory. It will soon be necessary to replace the furnace and A/C unit and the roof. A rough estimate of the cost of all of this work is $25-30,000. Window replacement should begin in the summer of 2017.
Langley Hall. The chimney on Langley is deteriorating and should be repaired or removed. The new furnace is high-efficiency and does not require a standard chimney. The only unit using the chimney is the hot water tank. This committee recommends replacing the gas-fired tank with an electric instant-on tank.
Next meeting. May 9, 2017, 7:00 PM. Future meetings on the parish calendar are Jun 13. There are no scheduled meetings in July and August.
Meeting adjourned at 9:00 PM.
