Marlene Tomczak reported that the County inspector was at the hall and approved the work done on the new kitchen. The inspector asked us to check if the MATIT insurance required us to install an Ansell system in the kitchen, the answer was no.
There will be none installed at this time. The county inspector says we should have a license for the kitchen; Marlene will take care of this. There were a couple of options but the one costing $398.00 is the one the board decided to go with which is a small kitchen license. Someone from Falls Fire & Safety will be here this week to check the fire extinguishers at the new building. Chairman Nevalainen will talk with the person who has installed the septic tanks and find out how to get a letter of compliance. We also need one for the well.
New Business –
