GOOD AFTERNOON, IT'S GOOD TO SEE EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO THE FACILITIES COMMITTEE MEETING OF TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER THE 14, 2021, OUR COMMITTEE MEMBERS ARE PRESENT AND I'M GLAD TO SEE OUR OTHER BOARD MEMBERS THAT ARE HERE.

IT IS 3:01, AND I CALL THIS MEETING TO ORDER AND DETERMINE THAT THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS ARE PRESENT ARE SUBSTITUTES.

AT THIS TIME, THE PUBLIC FORUM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO WISH TO MAKE COMMENTS.

MS. HOGAN.

DO WE HAVE ANY CARDS? NO CARDS.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO MOVE TO ITEM THREE, ROMAN NUMERAL THREE, AND IT'S THE SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE.

FOR THE SAKE OF TIME, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON WITH THE AGENDA.

APPRECIATE IT, SUPERINTENDENT.

BOARD MEMBERS AND COMMITTEE MEMBERS.

AS YOU SEE, WE HAVE A PRETTY LENGTHY FACILITY AGENDA.

SOME OF THESE ARE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN REQUESTED IN OUR LAST MEETING, AND SO SOME THINGS WE WILL JUST BE REVIEWING AND WE WILL BE JUST ASKING IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY OPPOSITION TO THAT PROCESS? ALL RIGHT.

[IV. A. Information Items]

MOVING FORWARD, OUR FIRST INFORMATION ITEM IS TO RECEIVE THE PRESENTATION OF THE 2014 BOND PROGRAM UPDATE AND MR. FERNANDEZ, AS WE HAVE DONE THIS.

WE GET THESE UPDATES AND BOARD MEMBERS.

WE HAVE IMPROVED AND ADDED THE PROJECT ENHANCEMENTS.

AND REMEMBER, THOSE WERE THE PROJECTS THAT WERE NOT INITIALLY INCLUDED IN THE ORIGINAL BOND.

BUT WE HAVE DONE AND COMPLETED.

BOARD MEMBERS.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS ITEM? IT'S AN INFORMATION ITEM.

MR. GLICK.

YEAH, JUST THANK YOU.

MS. GRIFFIN.

YOU'RE NOT SHOWING NUMBERS FOR NATATORIUM OR GRCT.

ARE WE STILL WORKING UP THOSE NUMBERS? TRUSTEE GLICK, CHAIR COMMITTEE CHAIR GRIFFIN, TRUSTEE GRIFFIN, MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE, DR. LOPEZ.

NO, SIR.

THE THE NUMBERS THAT WE'RE WE'RE SHOWING WHEN I WAS CALCULATING THE AUTHORIZATION SUMMARIES, THE AMOUNTS OF DOLLARS THAT WERE ENHANCEMENTS AND THAT THAT THE NATATORIUM PIECE IS AN OVERSIGHT ON MY END, THE THE NATATORIUM ITSELF WAS FROM A BOND AUTHORIZATION WAS AT 20 MILLION AND WE HAD THE TOTAL PROJECT COST CAME IN JUST ROUGHLY AROUND 30 MILLION.

SO THERE WAS A $10 MILLION ADDITIONAL WORK THAT WAS DONE AT THE NATATORIUM.

AND THAT WAS A AN AREA THAT THAT I FAILED TO ADD TO THAT TO THAT SLIDE, SIR.

WELL, WE CAN ADD THOSE AND JUST BRING THIS BACK JUST FOR INFORMATION AT THE NEXT FACILITY.

SO IF YOU ADD THOSE NUMBERS.

YEAH, ACTUALLY, THE FINAL NUMBER WAS CLOSER TO THIRTY THREE FIVE.

SO THIRTY THREE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND ON NATATORIUM.

YES, SIR, FROM FROM A PROJECT COST YES SIR.

YEAH.

OK.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS ON THE ENHANCEMENTS OF THE BOND? THANK YOU, MR. GLICK.

MOVING ON THIS NEXT UPDATE HAD TO DEAL WITH.

LET ME ACTUALLY READ THE AGENDA ITEM.

IT WAS TO RECEIVE PRESENTATION ON THE BOND UPDATE AND IT WAS FUND SIX EIGHTY ONE EXPENDITURE REPORT AND BOARD MEMBERS, IF YOU WOULD LOOK WHAT WAS REQUESTED FROM THE LAST COMMITTEE MEETING WAS FOR US TO ADD THAT FIRST COLUMN.

THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL BUDGET.

SO WE HAD ALREADY HAD CURRENT ACTUAL IN ALL THOSE OTHER COLUMNS.

WHAT WAS ADDED TO THIS REPORT WAS THE ORIGINAL BUDGET.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? MR. GLICK YES.

MS. GRIFFIN.

ALSO ON THIS DOCUMENT.

THERE ARE NUMEROUS, I'M GOING TO SAY, ERRORS THAT ARE OF NO RELEVANCE TO THE ORIGINAL AMOUNTS.

I WENT THROUGH THIS FAIRLY EXTENSIVELY OVER THE WEEKEND AND I'M NOT SURE WHERE THESE NUMBERS CAME FROM.

I THINK THEY'LL JUST HAVE TO BE REVISED.

SO WHEN WE HAVE 20 MILLION FOR DAVIS ELEMENTARY, THAT'S NOT TRUE.

TWENTY FOUR MILLION FOR ETHERIDGE.

WE HAVE SIGNIFICANT DOLLARS FOR ARMSTRONG.

NONE OF THESE DOLLARS MAKE ANY SENSE.

MR. GLICK.

CAN I ASK YOU TO DO SOMETHING FOR ME? YES, MA'AM.

WOULD YOU SEND ME WHAT YOU QUESTION THAT ARE NUMBERS THAT NEED TO BE UPDATED

[00:05:01]

AND IF YOU HAVE WHAT THOSE NUMBERS ARE AND THEN WE WILL, WE WILL SEND THAT TO DR.

RINGO AND THEN WE CAN RECTIFY OR SEE WHERE THE NUMBERS CAME? YEAH, IT MAY JUST BE THEY'RE OUT OF ORDER.

BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE NATATORIUM, WAS IT NINE MILLION.

SO THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

THE SECURITY WAS CORRECT, BUT THE TECHNOLOGY WAS THERE WASN'T THE ORIGINAL BOND.

I MEAN, THE NUMBERS THEMSELVES ON THAT ORIGINAL BUDGET COLUMN, REALLY, I COULDN'T ALMOST JUSTIFY ANY OF THE NUMBERS TO ANY OF THE PROJECTS.

OK, WELL, I STILL THINK WE OUGHT TO HAVE THAT DOCUMENTATION BOOKLET OR SOMETHING.

REMEMBER, THEY WERE NOT HERE.

THIS GROUP WAS NOT HERE WHEN WE WERE DOING THIS OR WHATEVER THEY'VE BEEN USING AS THE DOCUMENT, WE WILL RATIFY THAT DR.

RINGO AND WE'LL JUST BRING THIS BACK AGAIN AFTER WE HAVE DISCUSSED WHERE THE DISCREPANCIES ARE AND WITH AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHERE THE MONEY COMES FROM.

YEAH.

WITH YOUR PERMISSION MS. GRIFFIN.

COULD I HAVE MY TEAM WORK WITH MR. GLICK TO GO ONE ON ONE WITH THEM RATHER THAN THROUGH AN EMAIL? IT MIGHT BE EASIER JUST TO SIT DOWN AND GO OVER TO EVEN OVER THE PHONE, WHATEVER YOU WOULD SUGGEST.

DR.

LOPEZ, IF THAT'S WHAT YOU WOULD SUGGEST, THEN DR.

RINGO.

IF YOU WOULD COORDINATE A MEETING OR SOMETHING FOR MR. GLICK ALONG WITH YOUR FACILITIES AND MAINTENANCE TEAM SO THAT WE CAN GET THIS RECTIFIED OR MAKE THE NECESSARY ADJUSTMENT, IS THAT ACCEPTABLE BY THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS? OK, THANK YOU, MR. GLICK.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

OK.

OUR NEXT ITEM IS TO RECEIVE THE PARK CREST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SOIL COMPOSITION UPDATE.

AND THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERBAL UPDATE.

COMMITTEE MEMBERS IS JUST TO GIVE US, KEEP US IN THE LOOP OF EVERYTHING THAT'S HAPPENING.

IT'S NO PRESENTATION IS JUST A VERBAL UPDATE.

THANK YOU, COMMITTEE CHAIR.

SO THESE LAST TWO WEEKENDS, THE EPA HAS BEEN OUT AT PARK CREST DOING REMEDIATION.

FIRST OFF, I WANT TO THANK I WANT TO THANK THE EPA, IN PARTICULAR MR. DELGADO, WHO'S BEEN VERY INSTRUMENTAL IN ASSISTING US IN GETTING THAT FACILITY REMEDIATED.

WE HAVE MOVED FORWARD WITH THE DIFFERENT METALS THAT NEEDED TO BE REMEDIATED AT THE FACILITY.

IF YOU DRIVE PARK BY PARK CREST TODAY, YOU'LL SEE THAT WE'VE GOT SOME ORANGE FENCING IN THE FRONT.

THAT IS WHERE WE'VE ACTUALLY DONE THE REMEDIATION AND WE'VE GOT SOME PUT BACK TO GO BACK IN.

WE'VE GOT THE GARDEN AREA HAS BEEN REMEDIATED AS THE PLANS SHOW THE ENTIRE GARDEN WAS NOT DID NOT NEED TO BE REMEDIATED.

THERE WAS ONLY A SMALL SECTION OF IT THAT WAS NEEDING TO BE DONE THAT HAS BEEN DONE.

THE CREEK WORK IS ONGOING.

THEY PLAN ON CONTINUING WORKING IN THE CREEK THIS WEEKEND.

THE VEGETATION IN THE CREEK HAS BEEN A LITTLE BIT OF A CHALLENGE FOR THEM.

SO THEY'RE WORKING THROUGH THAT.

AS FAR AS THE PUT BACK FOR PLANTS AND FLOWERS AND THE THINGS THAT NEED TO GO BACK INTO THE GARDEN, WE ARE WORKING WITH THE EPA TO DEVELOP A PLAN ON HOW THAT'S GOING TO COME BACK, HOW WE'RE GOING TO BE MADE WHOLE FOR THAT PORTION, AS LONG AS WELL AS THE SOD THAT GOES IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL.

SO WE DO HAVE OUR SOILS ARE BACK FRESH SOILS ARE ON THE BUILDING NOW WITHIN THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING.

WE ARE WAITING FOR SOILS TO BE RETURNED TO US FOR THE GARDEN AREA.

SO THAT STILL HASN'T BEEN FILLED IN YET.

BUT WE PLAN ON GETTING ALL THAT DONE AGAIN THIS WEEKEND.

AND THEN SO THAT'S WHERE WE'RE AT WITH PARK CREST.

BOARD MEMBERS, COMMITTEE MEMBERS.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? MR. PRESIDENT MILLER.

YEAH, THANK YOU.

JUST REAL QUICK, I THINK I REMEMBER WHEN WE WENT THROUGH THIS PROTOCOL THAT THE SOILS THAT WERE BROUGHT IN WOULD BE TESTED ARE TO BE TESTED ONCE THEY'RE IN PLACE OR WERE THEY TESTED PRIOR TO DELIVERY? NO.

THE SOILS ARE ACTUALLY TESTED AT THE FACILITY WHERE THEY'RE BEING COLLECTED.

SO BEFORE THEY EVEN BROUGHT TO THE FACILITY, THEY'RE TESTED THERE.

ALL OF THE MANIFEST FOR THE SOILS ARE THE PROPERTY OF THE EPA.

I'VE REACHED OUT TO THE EPA.

WHAT I'D LIKE TO GET IS NOT ONLY THE EPA ACTUALLY TOLD US THAT THEY WOULD PROVIDE US A LETTER ONCE THEY'RE DONE AS A PROPERTY OWNER, SIMILAR TO ALL THE OTHER PROPERTIES THAT ARE BEING REMEDIATED.

EVERYONE WILL RECEIVE A LETTER FROM THE EPA STATING THAT ALL THE CONTAMINANTS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE PROPERTY.

WE WOULD ALSO LIKE AS A AS A PROPERTY OWNER, WE'D ALSO LIKE A COPY OF THE MANIFEST TO KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THOSE SOILS WERE TAKEN, ALONG WITH A MANIFEST OF WHERE THE SOILS WERE, WERE OR COLLECTED FROM.

SO WE'RE WORKING WITH THE EPA TO GET THAT INFORMATION.

OK.

AND WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE OTHER PROPERTIES, DOES THAT INCLUDE OUR SECOND PROPERTY

[00:10:02]

AS WELL? I CAN'T SPEAK ON THE SECOND PROPERTY.

THERE HAS BEEN SOME ACTION ON THAT.

IF YOU'D LIKE ME TO SPEAK TO THAT ONE AS WELL, SIR.

YES.

OK, SO THE OTHER PROPERTY THAT WE HAVE THERE ON [INAUDIBLE].

LET'S JUST LET'S FINISH WHAT WE HAVE ON PARK CREST.

ARE THERE ANY MORE QUESTIONS FROM BOARD MEMBERS? MR. JOHNSON.

SO THE WORK THAT'S BEEN DONE THUS FAR HAS BEEN FOCUSED PRIMARILY ON THE THE FRONT END OF THE SCHOOL WHERE THE THE ARSENIC WAS FOUND CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT, SIR.

WE'VE ACTUALLY STARTED.

THAT WAS THE FIRST PORTION THAT WE DID THAT DURING THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND, AND THIS FOLLOWING WEEKEND WE STARTED WORKING ON THE CREEK.

SO WE'RE ACTUALLY WORKING IN BOTH AREAS AT THIS TIME.

OK, SO HOW CLOSE TO COMPLETION ARE WE WITH RESPECT TO THE CREEK BED AREA? SO THE CREEK BED IS TAKEN A LITTLE BIT LONGER.

WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK TO THE CREEK BED THIS WEEKEND AND START STILL CONTINUING THE REMEDIATION FOR THAT.

IT'S GOING TO TAKE US ABOUT ANOTHER WEEK, WEEK AND A HALF ON THAT, ON THE REMEDIATION PART.

THEN WE'LL GO BACK WITH THE PUT BACK SOIL, SOILS BECAUSE IT'S A CREEK AND BECAUSE OF THE VEGETATION THAT WAS REMOVED.

WE'RE NOT JUST GOING BACK WITH SOIL, SO WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK WITH A MIXTURE OF SOILS AND ROCKS SO THAT WE CAN ENSURE THAT WE DON'T GET ANY EROSION.

SO WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING MORE EROSION CONTROL WITHIN THE CREEK BED.

ARE WE GOING TO BE PLACING THOSE STACKED ROCKS KIND OF UP ON THE SIDE OF THE CREEK THAT YOU SEE FROM TIME TO TIME? NO, SIR.

WE WOULD NOT BE DOING THAT.

THAT IS MORE OF AN ENGINEERING.

THAT'S AN ENGINEERED TYPE OF RETAINING WALL.

SO THOSE ARE WHAT WE WOULD BE DOING IS PUTTING BACK BOTH THE SOILS AND ESTABLISHING AN EROSION CONTROL WITH DIFFERENT VARIATIONS OF ROCKS THAT WE WOULD BE ADDING TO THAT AREA.

OK, AND HAS THE EPA BEEN OVERSEEING THIS PROCESS? YES, SIR.

THE EPA HAS BEEN OUT THERE EVERY TIME.

EVERY TIME THEY'RE THERE, THEY'RE CONTRACTORS OUT THERE.

THE EPA IS ON SITE.

THANK YOU.

AND BEFORE WE CONTINUE, I'M GOING TO ASK FOR LEGAL GUIDANCE IN DISCUSSING THE SECOND PROPERTY UNDER THIS AGENDA ITEM, IF YOU COULD REALLY ADVISE THE WAY THIS ITEM IS WRITTEN AND IN OUR [INAUDIBLE].

SO MS. GRIFFIN, AS FAR AS THE AGENDA POSTING IS CONCERNED, IT SAYS RECEIVE PARK CREST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SOIL COMPOSITION UPDATE AND IT LOOKS LIKE MR. FERNANDEZ JUST GAVE THAT UPDATE ON THAT SOIL COMPOSITION ON THE PARK CREST.

WAS THERE AN ADDITIONAL? YES, THERE WAS AN ADDITIONAL QUESTION BY PRESIDENT MILLER ON WHAT WAS THE NEXT OTHER PROPERTY? WELL, WE HAVE A SECOND PROPERTY LOCATED WITHIN THE CREEK.

I WAS ASKING IF AS PART OF THE CLEANUP PROCESS, IF THERE WAS ANY REPORT ON THAT, BUT I'M GLAD IF IT'S NOT APPROPRIATE AT THIS TIME SINCE IT WASN'T SPECIFICALLY ON THE AGENDA, I'D BE GLAD TO JUST PUT THAT ON THE NEXT AGENDA.

OK, SO I'VE NOTED THAT PRESIDENT MILLER FOR THE SAM HOUSTON CLEANUP FOR OUR NEXT FACILITIES MEETING.

IT WILL BE ON OUR FINANCE MEETING BECAUSE WE HAVE TO PAY OUT SO YOU CAN ASK SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT ABOUT IT ON THE NEXT SECTION.

IT'S ON FINANCE.

OK, SO IS THAT OK WITH YOU, PRESIDENT MILLER? YES.

OK, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

ALL RIGHT.

I THINK THE PROPERTY THAT THE PRESIDENT IS TALKING ABOUT IS THE SMALL LITTLE PROPERTY, NOT SAM HOUSTON.

THE SUNNYBROOK PROPERTY.

ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT SUNNYBROOK? AND THAT'S NOT I DON'T BELIEVE OH, OK, I WAS TALKING ABOUT SAM HOUSTON.

YEAH, OK.

SO LET'S RECAP WHAT WE JUST SAID, WHAT DID WE SAY? IS THAT WE WANT AN UPDATE ON THE WHICH PROPERTY? SUNNYBROOK.

SUNNYBROOK AND WE'RE GOING TO THAT CAN BE DISCUSSED IN FINANCE.

NO, IT'S PARK CREST.

I MEAN, SAM HOUSTON, THAT'S IN THERE, NOT SUNNY.

OK, SO I NEED TO PUT SUNNYBROOK UPDATE FOR THE NEXT FACILITIES COMMITTEE MEETING.

ALL RIGHTY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. FERNANDEZ.

OUR NEXT ITEM ON PAGE 15, AS WE BEGAN WITH RECEIVE PRESENTATION ON CURRENT AND FUTURE USAGE OF OUR PATHWAY ACHIEVEMENT CENTER.

MR. GONZALES.

GOOD AFTERNOON, FACILITIES CHAIR GRIFFIN, MS. GRIFFIN, FACILITIES COMMITTEE AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND DR.

[00:15:04]

LOPEZ, TODAY I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU.

AGAIN, THIS WAS INFORMATION THAT WAS REQUESTED FOR FUTURE USE OF OUR PATHFINDER'S ACHIEVEMENT CENTER.

SO AS YOU KNOW, WE'VE WE'VE RELOCATED STUDENTS OUT OF PATHFINDER'S ACHIEVEMENT CENTER TO DIFFERENT CAMPUSES THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT AND CURRENTLY RIGHT NOW WE'RE UTILIZING THAT FACILITY FOR STORAGE IN CERTAIN PARTS OF THE BUILDING, AS YOU CAN SEE IN THESE PHOTOS.

A LOT OF THIS, A LOT OF THIS STORAGE, A LOT OF THE STORAGE, A LOT OF THIS STUFF BEING STORED, IT'S STUFF BEING STORED IN OUR IN OUR STORAGE AREAS AT PATHFINDERS IS ACTUALLY ITEMS THAT HAVE COME OUT OF THIS FACILITY AS WE PREPARE FOR THE HARRIS HILL RENOVATIONS.

WE'VE WE'VE ACTUALLY UTILIZE THIS SPACE TO MOVE THAT THIS STUFF OUT OF THIS BUILDING SO WE CAN PREPARE FOR FUTURE CONSTRUCTION.

SO WE'VE WE'VE IDENTIFIED SOME AREAS.

I WALKED IT WITH DR. RINGO AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE USUALLY USING IT FOR CURRENTLY.

WHAT WE'VE PROPOSED, THE ADMINISTRATION CAME CAME TO US A FEW MONTHS AGO.

WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT VIRTUAL VIRTUAL SCHOOL HERE AT THE DISTRICT.

WE'VE ALSO WALKED THIS FACILITY AND IT'S PROPOSED COULD BE A PROPOSED AREA WITHIN PATHFINDER ACHIEVEMENT CENTER, SOME OF THE CLASSROOMS TO UTILIZE THAT FACILITY TO BE USED AS VIRTUAL CLASSROOMS IN THE FUTURE.

SO THAT'S ANOTHER POSSIBILITY FOR THE DISTRICT, IF THAT'S IF WE DECIDE TO DO THAT.

THAT'S WHAT WE'VE TALKED, WE'VE SPOKEN ABOUT.

FUTURE.

AFTER PB [INAUDIBLE] PBK'S ASSESSMENT, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT RECOMMENDATIONS THAT CAME THROUGH THE ASSESSMENT WAS THAT BUILDING COULD BE TOTALLY RENOVATED.

IT COULD BE CONSIDERED AS A FUTURE DEPARTMENT LOCATION IF WE DECIDED TO HOUSE A DEPARTMENT THERE.

IT'S A CENTRALLY LOCATED FACILITY, SO YOU WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO, YOU KNOW, GARLAND IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS SO THAT THAT WAS A PROPOSAL THAT CAME TO US.

AND THEN ALSO IT COULD BE ALSO RENOVATED FOR A FUTURE SCHOOL CAMPUS.

SO IT'S BEEN IN THE CONVERSATIONS.

NOTHING'S BEEN DECIDED.

IT'S JUST BEEN CONVERSATIONS.

IT'S IT'S A GREAT HISTORIC BUILDING AND IT'S IT'S GOT A LOT OF BEAUTIFUL FEATURES IN IT.

ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? AND WHAT IS THE MARKER THAT'S IN FRONT OF THIS BUILDING? IT'S A HISTORICAL, IS IT JUST A HISTORICAL MARKER? THERE IS A HISTORICAL MARKER ON IT'S A HISTORICAL MARKER ON THE PROPERTY, BUT NOT THE BUILDING.

SO THE BUILDINGS ARE NOT CONSIDERED HISTORICAL.

THE PROPERTY IS IS THE LANDMARK WHERE WE IDENTIFY THAT.

OK, THANK YOU, TRUSTEES ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? MS. GRIFFIN? YES.

IN THE FUTURE, IF ANOTHER USE IS IDENTIFIED OR IF WE'RE GOING TO REPURPOSE A BUILDING.

MY ASSUMPTION IS THAT ALL THAT WILL COME BACK TO THE BOARD FOR A DECISION.

IS THAT CORRECT? I WOULD REFER TO AND DEFER TO DR.

LOPEZ.

YES.

FOR FOR THE AMOUNT OF RENOVATIONS THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE DONE ON ON ANYTHING ON THIS BUILDING WOULD REQUIRE BOARD APPROVAL.

NOT JUST SIMPLE FIXES.

AND WE WOULD REPORT IT TO THE BOARD OF LIKE, FOR INSTANCE, REALLOCATING RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO REPORT TO THE BOARD, BUT JUST SO, YOU KNOW, CENTRAL OFFICE STAFF, AS WE'RE STARTING TO FIX THE AIR SYSTEMS HERE, THEY'RE GOING TO A LOT OF THE CENTRAL OFFICE STAFF ARE GOING TO BE THERE.

RIGHT BUT THAT DOES NOT INVOLVE ANY BIG EXPENDITURE OF REMODELING OR ANYTHING DOES IT? NO.

NO SIR.

IT'S JUST MOVING BACK AND FORTH, SO HERE'S HERE'S MY THOUGHTS ON ON THIS SCHOOL.

AND I THINK GARLAND'S BEEN BLESSED WITH GREAT BUILDINGS THAT HAVE SERVED US WELL FOR MANY YEARS.

I MEAN, THE GARLAND ISD AND SOME OF OUR BUILDINGS ARE GETTING REALLY OLD, AND IT'S GETTING TO THE POINT WHERE I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THE BOARD IS AWARE OF THE COST TO RENOVATE VERSUS THE COST OF MAYBE A NEW LOCATION OR SOMETHING JUST TO MAKE SURE WE KNOW THE TRADE OFF.

I'M SITTING HERE LOOKING.

I THINK MS. GRIFFIN WAS LOOKING AT THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING WHERE IT SAYS GARLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

TO ME, THAT'S A THAT'S GREAT.

I MEAN, I WOULD LOVE IF SOMETHING COULD PRESERVE AT LEAST THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING.

BUT, YOU KNOW, I JUST THINK THE BOARD, AS WE GO NOW, ESPECIALLY WITH REMODELING AND RENOVATING SOME OF OUR EXTREMELY OLD BUILDINGS TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR, OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF ARE BEST SERVED BY A REMODEL VERSUS SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE NEWER.

SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE IN THAT LOOP.

SO THANK YOU.

YES.

AND I WILL YIELD TO DR.

LOPEZ AND HIS TEAM OF WHEN THEY ARE READY WITH NEW DIRECTION ON THIS.

AND AT THAT TIME, IF YOU JUST LET DR.

[00:20:04]

RINGO KNOW AND THEN WE'LL PUT IT ON THE APPROPRIATE AGENDA FOR DISCUSSION.

ALL RIGHTY, THANK YOU.

ANY MORE QUESTIONS? OK, LET'S LOOK AT THE NEXT ITEM, WHICH IS TO RECEIVE THE PRESENTATION ON THE SCHOOL GARDEN SAFETY PROTOCOL.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS SURFACED WAS REALLY THE QUESTION THAT CAME TO THE COMMITTEE WAS HOW MANY SCHOOLS REALLY HAD GARDENS.

WHAT DID THEY LOOK LIKE? WHAT WAS THE PROTOCOL OF ON THEM? SO THIS IS WHAT PAGES TWENTY ONE THROUGH TWENTY SIX HAS IDENTIFIED ALL OF THE GARDENS THAT ARE IN THE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, SO TRUSTEES I ASK IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS ? FROM THE PICTURES THAT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE WELL KEPT OR WHATEVER.

SO ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? MS. STANLEY.

SO THE COUPLE OF QUESTIONS I HAVE IS THAT THEY LOOK VERY WELL KEPT.

BUT DO WE DO ANY KIND OF SOIL TESTING ON IT? I MEAN, WHAT KIND OF WHAT DO WE HAVE IN PLACE JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T HAVE ANYBODY BRINGING ANYTHING IN, YOU KNOW WHAT'S OUR CHECKS AND BALANCES? WELL, THE MAJORITY OF THE I WOULD SAY SINCE I'VE BEEN HERE, THE MAJORITY OF THE GARDENS HAVE BEEN MANAGED THROUGH.

IT'S USUALLY THE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL, PTA AND THE SCHOOL NURSE AT TIMES GETS INVOLVED TOO.

AND BASICALLY, AS MAINTENANCE IS ASKED TO PURCHASE SOIL, SO WE PURCHASE SOIL FROM ONE OF OUR APPROVED VENDORS, WE BRING THE SOIL IN.

WE WORK, WORK WITH THE SCHOOL AND AND WE GET WE GET IT PLANTED.

NOW OUTSIDE OF THAT, THERE MAY BE SOME GARDENS THAT WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT SOILS MAY BE BROUGHT IN BY BY DONATIONS OF PARENTS OR ORGANIZATIONS THAT WE'RE UNAWARE OF.

BUT WE, FOR THE MOST PART, I WOULD SAY THAT WE, AS IN FACILITIES AND MAINTENANCE, WORK WITH THE PRINCIPAL AND THE STAFF THERE TO MAINTAIN WELL TO OVERSEE THE PLANNING AND THE MAINTAINING OF THE GARDENS.

MAINTENANCE DOES NOT SPEND ANY KIND OF RESOURCES MAINTAINING THEM AFTER THEY'VE BEEN PUT IN PLACE.

WE KIND OF GUIDE THEM IN ESTABLISHING THEM.

BUT AFTER THAT, WE KIND OF STEP BACK AND THEY MANAGE DAY TO DAY.

BUT THERE IS NO SOIL TESTING NOW.

THE MATERIALS THAT COME FROM OUR APPROVED VENDORS, WE'VE BEEN BUYING SOILS FROM DIFFERENT VENDORS HERE IN THE DFW AREA.

I'M PRETTY SURE THEY HAVE TO, THEY USE CERTAIN GUIDELINES.

THEY GO BY IN THESE SOILS WHERE THEY'RE THEY'RE SELLING TO IF IT'S COMING IN A BAG OR IT'S COMING IN IN A IN THE BACK OF A DUMP TRUCK.

BUT AS OF NOW, I HAVE NOTHING TO STATE THAT I HAVE READINGS OF SOIL SAMPLING OF ANY SOURCE OF ANY ANY OF THESE LOCATIONS.

SO THEN THE NEXT QUESTION I WOULD HAVE IS THAT IS THERE ANYTHING THAT WE COULD DO, DR.

LOPEZ, THIS WOULD BE MORE DIRECTED TO YOU.

DON'T WE HAVE HORTICULTURE AND STUFF WITH NAAMAN FOREST SCHOOL THAT MAYBE WE COULD LOOK INTO THAT PROGRAM LOOKING INTO MAKING IT PART OF SOMETHING THAT THEY COULD DO AS PART OF THEIR LEARNING? AND.

ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT DOING SOIL SAMPLING THROUGH LIKE HORTICULTURE OR? WE COULD LOOK IN TO SEE WHAT THEY DO.

I KNOW THAT SOIL COMPOSITION DOES AFFECT PLANT GROWTH AND CERTAIN SOILS ARE USED FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF PLANTS AND VEGETATION.

I'M NOT AN EXPERT, SO I DON'T WANT TO COMMENT ON WHAT THE PARAMETERS ARE TO BE ALLOWED TO DO THAT TYPE OF TESTING.

IT MIGHT HAVE TO BE A CERTIFIED AGENCY.

AND I'M NOT NECESSARILY TESTING.

MAYBE TESTING ISN'T A GOOD WORD, BUT JUST SOMEBODY THAT COULD DO SOME SOIL COMPOSITION.

AND JUST SO THAT WE'RE JUST IN LIGHT OF WHAT TOOK PLACE WITH THE PARK CREST, WE COULD SAY THAT, YOU KNOW, WE WE DO KIND OF HAVE OUR EYE ON THE BALL IN OTHER AREAS NOW.

YEAH, YOU KNOW, AND I THINK THE THE HARD PART IS THE SOILS ARE ALWAYS BROUGHT IN AND I THINK MAYBE WHAT WE CAN DO, THE FIRST STEP IS WE STANDARDIZE WHICH SOILS WOULD BE ALLOWED IN AND WHICH ONES WOULDN'T.

YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT'S A FIRST STEP IF YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A GARDEN.

THESE ARE THE PARAMETERS SET BY THE DISTRICT THAT YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW AND AND THEN THEY HAVE TO BE SUBJECT TO WHATEVER TYPE OF TESTING THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE.

UNFORTUNATELY, WHAT HAPPENED IN PARK CREST WITH WITH THE LEVELS OF ARSENIC THAT THEY FELT THAT NEEDED TO BE REMEDIATED, THEY DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT WAS GOING TO CAUSE

[00:25:05]

IMMEDIATE HARM, BUT IT'S ONE OF THOSE.

CHRONIC TYPE OF THINGS THAT COULD HAPPEN OVER TIME, SO WE COULD WE COULD REVIEW HOW WE DO OUR SOILS, DEFINITELY.

MR. SELDERS.

YES JUST HAD A QUICK QUESTION.

WHAT I SAW THIS TOPIC COMING, I WAS LOOKING FOR A DOCUMENT THAT WAS GOING TO BE A STANDARD IN TERMS OF WHAT ARE WE DOING FOR SAFETY PROTOCOL ACROSS THE DISTRICT FOR SCHOOLS THAT HAD THESE GARDENS? AND IS THERE A DOCUMENT THAT WE HAVE OR IS IN DRAFT THAT STATES THIS INFORMATION? THAT'S THE FIRST QUESTION.

AND THEN THE SECOND QUESTION HAD TO DO WITH I NOTICE THAT THERE WERE A LIST OF OR IN THE LIST OF SCHOOLS THAT WE HAD.

WE HAD SOME GARDENS THAT WEREN'T FUNCTIONING ANYMORE.

AND SO THERE WAS A PROCESS SUPPOSEDLY THAT NEEDED TO HAPPEN THROUGH MAINTENANCE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT NEEDED TO HAPPEN WITH EITHER RAISED STRUCTURES OR THAT AREA WITHIN THOSE CAMPUSES.

AND I WAS JUST CURIOUS AS TO WHAT'S BEEN DONE WITH THOSE THINGS.

SO TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY, HISTORY JUST IN GENERAL FROM FROM MY POINT OF VIEW, THIS IS NOT THE FIRST DISTRICT THAT I'VE WORKED WITH COMMUNITY GARDENS AND GARDENS JUST IN GENERAL AT THE CAMPUSES, GARDENS ARE GOING TO BE ARE GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL IF SOMEONE MAINTAINS IT AND TAKES OWNERSHIP.

A LOT OF TIMES.

SOME OF THE STAFF HAVE GOOD INTENTION IN PUTTING THESE GARDENS AT THE BEGINNING AND THEY LOSE INTEREST IN IT.

AND THEN IT COMES TO ME.

IT'S REPORTED TO ME THAT, HEY, IT'S OVERGROWN, NO ONE'S MAINTAINING IT.

THE STRUCTURES ARE ARE ROTTED OUT AND WE NEED TO RAISE IT.

AND USUALLY AT THAT POINT, WE GO OUT, MEET WITH THE PRINCIPAL, SAY, HEY, NO ONE'S MAINTAINING THIS, WE NEED.

IT'S AN EYESORE.

WE NEED TO GET RID OF IT.

AND THAT'S THAT PROCESS.

NOW, IN REGARDS TO GARDENS HERE AT THE DISTRICT, MANY OF THESE GARDENS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED FOR MANY YEARS.

PARK CREST WAS ONE OF THE VERY LAST GARDENS THAT I KNOW THAT SINCE I'VE BEEN HERE WAS ESTABLISHED, BUT SOME OF THESE GARDENS HAVE BEEN IN PLACE FOR MANY YEARS, AND THERE IS NO PROTOCOLS CURRENTLY.

THAT'S SOMETHING THAT MOVING FORWARD, IT'S BROUGHT, YOU KNOW, WHEN THIS WAS BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION WITH ARSENIC AND SO FORTH.

MY PLAN IS TO PUT TOGETHER SOME TYPE OF PROTOCOLS AND GUIDELINES, AS DR.

LOPEZ SAYS, YOU KNOW, HE BROUGHT UP A GOOD POINT IS WHO ARE THE SOILS COMING FROM AND ACTUALLY HAVING SOME KIND OF MANIFEST FOR THAT.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S MOVING FORWARD FROM OUR ADMINISTRATION NOW, EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS AT A CAMPUS NOW COMES THROUGH A PROJECT REQUEST FORM.

IN THE PAST, IT WAS PROJECTS LIKE THIS TYPE GOING ACROSS THE DISTRICT, AND THERE WAS NOT REALLY A PROCESS TO STEER THEM TO THE ADMINISTRATION.

NOW WE DO HAVE A PROJECT REQUEST FORM THAT THAT WHOEVER WANTS TO DO A PROJECT OF THIS TYPE WOULD SUBMIT THAT TO THE ADMINISTRATION.

AND THEN IT GOES UP TO CERTAIN LEVELS, TO THE ROUNDTABLE AND THEY APPROVE IT.

THEY DISAPPROVE IT.

SO THAT'S GOING TO HELP ME OUT, BE ABLE TO MANAGE WHAT'S GOING ON OUT THERE.

BUT WE COULD PUT SOME PROTOCOLS, SOME SAFETY PROTOCOLS AND SOME GUIDELINES.

AND THEN I CAN BRING THAT BACK TO THE TO THE FACILITIES COMMITTEE AND SHARE THAT WITH YOU AND SEE IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WOULD WORK FOR Y'ALL.

YEAH, NO.

I WAS.

I MEAN, WITH RESPECT TO THE SOIL PIECE, I THOUGHT THAT WAS ONE ASPECT.

I MEAN, IMAGINE THAT THEY'RE USING TOOLS AND THINGS LIKE THAT IN THESE VARIOUS GARDENS.

SO HOW AND WHO'S GOING TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR OVERSIGHT AND MAKING SURE THAT STUDENTS UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE THAT? SO I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT ALL THE DIFFERENT WAYS THAT SAFETY COULD HAPPEN OR NEEDED TO HAPPEN WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THIS.

AND SOME OF THESE, SOME OF THESE BOXES, IF THEY'RE NOT MAINTAINED, NAILS START STICKING AFTER IT'S ROTTED AND THEY ALL START STICKING OUT AND THERE COULD BE SOME SAFETY ISSUES.

AND AGAIN, A LOT OF THESE, THE OWNERSHIP HAS TO COME FROM THE CAMPUS LEVEL BECAUSE THEY SEE THAT DAY TO DAY.

THAT WOULDN'T BE SOMETHING THAT MAINTENANCE THESE GARDENS.

BUT IF THEY HAD A DOCUMENT, THEY WOULD AT LEAST KNOW, YOU KNOW SPEAKERS].

I CAN PUT ONE IN DRAFT AND SHARE IT WITH WITH THE FACILITIES COMMITTEE AND GET IT TO THE ADMINISTRATION FIRST TO DR.

LOPEZ AND DR. RINGO.

AND THEN WE CAN BRING IT TO Y'ALL.

DR. LOPEZ.

THE THING THAT WE HAVE TO JUST KEEP IN CONTEXT IS THESE ARE COMMUNITY GARDENS, SO PEOPLE ARE WORKING ON THIS GARDEN AFTER HOURS.

THIS ISN'T LIKE A WHOLE SCHOOL SPONSORED EVENT SOLELY IN A LOT OF THESE PLACES.

SO IT'S REALLY LIKE WHEN WE SAY WE'RE GOING TO PUT PARAMETERS IN SOIL, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE FROM THE COMMUNITY SAYING, OH, YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS IS A DIFFERENT TYPE OF SOIL OR IT NEEDS THIS OR THERE'S TOO MANY ANTS.

I'M GOING TO BRING INSECTICIDES.

I MEAN, THOSE THOSE ARE THE REALITIES THAT WE'RE FACING.

AND BECAUSE THEY'RE COMMUNITY GARDENS, UNLESS YOU WANT TO STOP THE COMMUNITY GARDEN PROJECT AND HAVE IT JUST A SCHOOL GARDEN PROJECT, THOSE ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS.

AND SO LIKE WHEN WE AND I'M GOING TO BRING IT BACK TO PARK CREST, PARK CREST IS TRULY A COMMUNITY GARDEN.

THEY'RE WORKING ON IT.

YOU HAVE ALL THESE OUTSIDERS PUTTING THEIR HANDS ON IT.

YOU HAVE OUR TEACHERS, OUR STUDENTS PUTTING THEIR HANDS ON IT.

AND IT'S REALLY WHERE PEOPLE COME IN AND MEET AND TALK, AND IT'S A CENTERPIECE FOR

[00:30:04]

THE COMMUNITY.

SO WE HAVE TO REALIZE THAT WE.

WE COULD PUT OUT GUIDELINES, BUT THEY'RE REALLY ONLY GOING TO BE RECOMMENDATIONS BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO BE VERY HARD TO ENFORCE COMMUNITY GARDENS.

MS. STANLEY.

SO I HAD ACTUALLY I HAD STARTED ASKING AROUND TO SOME OF THE CITIES AND STUFF TO ASK HOW THEY HANDLED THAT.

AND I HAD ACTUALLY SOMEBODY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE COMMUNITY GARDENS, SO THEY'RE INSURED THROUGH THEIR PROBABLY MOST OF THEM CAME BACK WITH SOME KIND OF A 501C C3 ORGANIZATION WHO TECHNICALLY OWNS THOSE COMMUNITY GARDENS.

AND THEY CARRIED THE INSURANCE SO THAT IF SOMETHING HAPPENS, THEY'RE THE ONES WHO KIND OF ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.

SO I GET WHAT YOU'RE SAYING AND IT'S A COMMUNITY AND WE DON'T HAVE CONTROL OF IT, BUT IT IS STILL SOMETHING THAT WE JUST WANT TO AT LEAST MAKE SOME GUIDELINES, WOULDN'T WE? WE COULD.

BUT.

SO LIKE ON THOSE 503C ORGANIZATIONS, THEY HELP US OUT, BUT THEY DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TO THE GARDEN.

IT'S ON OUR PROPERTY.

AND THE THING IS, OUR PROPERTIES ARE OPEN.

IF YOU NOTICE A LOT OF OUR GISD PROPERTIES AREN'T FENCED IN.

SO WE I MEAN, WE COULD LOOK AT OTHER AVENUES AND SEE WHAT OTHERS DO, BUT JUST UNDERSTAND THE ENFORCEMENT.

I MEAN, WE CAN TEST THE SOIL, WE CAN DO A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS.

BUT ENFORCEMENT AND GUIDELINES WOULD HAVE TO BE ON THE CAMPUS'S SHOULDERS.

MR. GLICK.

YEAH, AS SOMEONE WHO'S INVOLVED WITH TREE PLANNING, IT'S GOING TO BE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE WITH PLANTS.

PEOPLE WILL GET GIFTS AS PLANTS.

PEOPLE WILL TRAVEL AROUND THE COUNTRY OR AROUND THE WORLD AND BRING IN PLANTS, AND THE SOILS WILL BE MIXTURES THAT YOU WON'T EVEN BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE OR TEST.

THAT'S WHAT I WOULD EXPECT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, AND IT PROBABLY IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

THANK YOU.

OK.

DR. LOPEZ, I WOULD SAY IF YOU WOULD JUST PUT THIS, YOU KNOW, ON YOUR LIST WHEN YOU AND YOUR ROUNDTABLE HAVE TIME BASICALLY TO DISCUSS IT.

BECAUSE IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THESE GARDENS STARTED INITIALLY THROUGH PTAS.

THAT WAS WHERE THEY REALLY THEY REALLY STARTED.

SO IF YOU WHATEVER, YOU CAN PRIORITIZE THIS AND YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT TO BRING BACK.

LET ME KNOW, AND WE'LL PUT IT ON THE AGENDA.

IS THAT AGREEABLE WITH EVERYONE? ALL RIGHT.

I APPRECIATE IT.

OK, THANK YOU.

YOU'RE STILL UP.

YES, MA'AM.

AND YOU HAVE SOME PARTNERS HERE FOR THE NEXT ONE RECEIVE PRESENTATION ON CAMPUS ENROLLMENT AND CAPACITY UPDATE.

TRUSTEES WE'VE HAD QUESTIONS IN TERMS OF WHAT'S THE CAPACITY OF ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS.

WHAT'S THE ENROLLMENT? WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THE PORTABLE CAPACITY.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING FOR ACTION.

THIS IS ACTUALLY FOR INFORMATION.

SO WHAT YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU IS THE INFORMATION THAT WAS REQUESTED AND THIS MAY BE A REFERENCE DOCUMENT SOMETIME LATER IN THE FUTURE.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? YES, MR. BEACH.

IF AND ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO ASK IS FAR AS THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL AND MAYBE EVEN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL, IF THE CAPACITY THAT WE SHOW HERE FOR THAT PARTICULAR CAMPUS IS THE ONLY OPTION THAT WE HAVE OTHER THAN THAT THEN WOULD BE TO BRING IN THE PORTABLE BUILDINGS.

YOU WANT TO COME UP? I WANT TO INTRODUCE, OF COURSE, DR.

HEMPHILL.

AND THEN WE HAVE JESS HUDSON.

THEY'RE REALLY INSTRUMENTAL IN HOW CAPACITY STUDIES AND WHEN IT COMES TO STUDENT ENROLLMENT AND WHEN THEY COME TO FACILITIES AND REQUESTS IF THERE'S A PORTABLE NEEDED OR WHAT'S NEEDED AT THAT CAMPUS.

SO I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO BOTH OF THEM TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

THANK YOU.

DR.

HEMPHILL.

THAT COLUMN THAT SAYS THE FUNCTIONAL BUILDING CAPACITY DOES NOT INCLUDE THE PORTABLE SPACE, AND SO IF YOU SEE SOMETHING THAT'S OVER A HUNDRED PERCENT, THAT IS THE CAPACITY WITHOUT THE PORTABLES ADDED.

SO YES, TO COVER MORE SPACE, WE WOULD HAVE TO UTILIZE THE PORTABLES.

PORTABLE BUILDING.

OK.

YES, SIR.

OR BUILD A WING.

OR BUILD A WING, YOU KNOW, LIKE WHAT YOU DID IN NORTH GARLAND, RIGHT? YOU GUYS BUILT THAT EXTRA TWO STORY.

NORTH GARLAND YEAH SELLERS.

ROWLETT AND SACHSE WE ADDED WINGS ALSO FOR ALL THREE.

RIGHT.

SO THOSE WOULD BE YOUR ALTERNATIVES.

SO LIKE IF YOU LOOK AT LAKEVIEW THEY GOT FIVE HUNDRED PORTABLE CAPACITY, YOU KNOW, THAT

[00:35:03]

WOULD REQUIRE NOT MORE PORTABLES HOPEFULLY.

[LAUGHTER] YEAH, THEY'RE EYESORES.

SO YEAH.

OK, WE DID HAVE A POINT IN TIME THAT WE HAD NO PORTABLES, WE HAD MANY MORE PORTABLES AND THEN WE HAD NONE, AND NOW WE HAVE THESE.

AND SO TRUSTEES ARE THERE QUESTIONS.

LOPEZ STATED, WE WANT TO GET AWAY FROM PORTABLES.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S HAPPENED IN THE LAST FEW YEARS IS THE CITY OF GARLAND HAVEN'T REALLY GOTTEN VERY MUCH FEEDBACK FROM SACHSE AND ROWLETT, BUT THE CITY OF GARLAND, THEY'RE VERY MUCH OPPOSED TO THE WOODEN, PORTABLE STRUCTURES THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE.

IF WE DO ANY MORE PORTABLE IF WE ALLOCATE A PORTABLE OR STATE WE NEED A PORTABLE AT A CERTAIN CAMPUSES IT HAS TO MEET CERTAIN ARCHITECTURAL GUIDELINES, THE STRUCTURES THAT WE GOT.

I THINK THERE WAS A LAW PASSED THAT NO LONGER PUTS THAT IN EFFECT.

OKAY.

SO WE GOT TO VERIFY THAT BECAUSE THE STRUCTURES YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, LIKE HOW THEY HAD TO BE SURROUNDED BY BRICK AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

YES, SIR.

I BELIEVE NOT THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION, BUT LAST LEGISLATION SESSION THEY BYPASSED THAT.

OK.

AND THE CITIES WERE UPSET BECAUSE THEY WERE HAVING A HARD TIME WITH IT.

BUT WE CAN LOOK INTO THAT.

YES, SIR.

I WOULD ASK THEN THAT MS. GRIFFIN AT OUR NEXT BOARD MEETING FOR THE FACILITIES, IF WE COULD JUST GET A NUMBER OF HOW MANY PORTABLE BUILDINGS THAT WE DO HAVE.

IF THAT'S ACCEPTABLE.

YEAH, I THINK IT IS BASED ON THIS.

BASED ON THIS TABULATION, AND WE CAN ALL SUM THOSE UP.

OK.

YEAH, THEY ARE.

BUT WE CAN JUST GET WHAT THE NUMBER IS.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS TRUSTEES.

OH, MR. MILLER, I'M JUST KIND OF PIGGYBACKING ON MR. BEACH WHEN I'M LOOKING AT THE PORTABLE CAPACITY COLUMN ON THE FAR RIGHT.

I'M ASSUMING ANYTHING WITH A ZERO MEANS IT DOESN'T HAVE A PORTABLE ON THE LOCATION.

THAT IS CORRECT.

CORRECT.

SO IF I SEE IT HAS EXTRA CAPACITY, LIKE LET'S TAKE COOPER ELEMENTARY HAS A CAPACITY FOR FORTY FOUR ADDITIONAL STUDENTS.

IS THAT HOW I'M READING IT? THE PORTABLE BUILDING ALLOWS FOR FORTY FOUR EXTRA STUDENTS.

YES.

UNDER THE ELEMENTARY, WE USE TWENTY TWO.

SO IF YOU SEE 22 44 ABBETT'S ONE, IT'S A SINGLE PORTABLE.

WE GET UP INTO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL HIGH SCHOOLS WE USE A CAPACITY OF TWENTY FIVE.

OKAY, SO IF SOMEBODY LIKE CENTERVILLE ELEMENTARY SAYS ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY SIX, HOW MANY BUILDINGS IS THAT? QUITE A FEW.

OK, SO WITH RESPECT TO MR. BEACH'S QUESTION I THINK THAT'S AN INTEREST.

BUT WHEN I SEE A SCHOOL WITH 60 PERCENT OR LESS OCCUPANCY THAT DOES HAVE PORTABLES, DO I ASSUME WE'RE USING THE PORTABLES OR ARE WE NOT? DEPENDS ON THE CAMPUS ADMINISTRATION.

YEAH, I'D JUST KIND OF LIKE TO SEE WHICH ONES ARE ACTUALLY IN USE AND WHICH ONES ARE NOT.

I THINK MR. BEACH WANTED TO KNOW THE NUMBER SO THAT'D JUST BE FOR FULL INFORMATION.

AND WE CAN BRING SO I THINK WHAT I'M HEARING IS WE WANT A TOTAL COUNT OF HOW MANY PORTABLES WHERE THEY ARE PER CAMPUS.

SO IF IT'S ONE TWO OR THREE, SO IF YOU COULD JUST BRING A SUMMARY THAT DEALS JUST WITH PORTABLES BASED ON ALL OF THE LOCATIONS THAT WE HAVE HERE SPEAKERS].

MS. GRIFFIN, AND IF THEY'RE BEING USED.

AND IF THEY'RE BEING USED.

BY STUDENTS OR STORAGE.

THAT'S KEY.

OK, BECAUSE A LOT OF.

WHATEVER, WHATEVER, JUST Y'ALL DEFINE IT.

YES.

MR. GLICK.

YES.

THANK YOU MS. GRIFFIN.

I THINK EVEN A BETTER WAY TO LOOK AT THIS WOULD BE IF WE COULD MATCH WHAT WE HAVE IN FRONT OF US AND SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN ASKED TOO ALREADY WITH THE LATEST DEMOGRAPHERS REPORT THAT WE GOT WHERE HIS PROJECTIONS OF WHERE OUR GROWTH IS GOING TO BE, WHERE OUR GROWTH IS NOT GOING TO BE AND HOW THAT MATCHES UP TO EXISTING CAPACITY RIGHT NOW.

I THINK IF WE CAN GET BOTH REPORTS MELDED TOGETHER, I THINK THAT WOULD REALLY HELP US AS WE GO FORWARD.

THANK YOU.

OK, SO WHAT I'M HEARING IS WE WANT AN ITEM BROUGHT BACK THAT SUMMARIZES EVERYTHING THAT YOU'VE HEARD HERE [LAUGHTER] WITH THE UTILIZATION, THE TOTAL NUMBER OF BUILDINGS AND BASICALLY ALL OF THAT AND MATCHING IT TO THIS EXISTING REPORT.

IS THAT CORRECT? OK, SO I WILL PUT THAT DOWN AS A NEXT AGENDA ITEM.

[00:40:05]

AND LET ME JUST SAY THIS, STAFF AND DR.

LOPEZ, WHEN WE PUT THINGS DOWN FOR A NEXT AGENDA ITEM, IT'S WHEN YOU CAN GIVE US ACCURATE, TIMELY INFORMATION, NOT SAYING THAT WE MUST HAVE IT NEXT MONTH.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE THAT SURE SO THAT WE'RE NOT ALL WALKING OUT OF HERE AND YOU ALL JUST ADDED 10 MORE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE TO DO BECAUSE OF THE TIMELINESS OF WHEN AGENDA ITEMS HAVE TO BE SUBMITTED AND SUPPLEMENTARY DOCUMENTATION HAS TO BE PROVIDED.

DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? SO THAT'S WHY I KEEP SAYING WHEN YOU ARE READY AND HAVE THE INFORMATION, DR.

LOPEZ WORKING WITH DR.

RINGO, YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE AGENDA.

IS THAT AGREEABLE.

ADMINISTRATION THANKS YOU.

WELL, I'D LIKE TO ASK, OK, I WANT PAPPADEAUX.

OK, GO ON.

I JUST WANT TO QUICKLY, ON THE FUNCTIONAL BUILDING CAPACITY THAT THAT NUMBER JESS IS THIS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU'RE WORKING WITH, THE GENTLEMAN THAT DOES WHAT MR. GLICK TALKED ABOUT.

Y'ALL ARE WORKING ON THOSE.

THE DEMOGRAPHER.

THE DEMOGRAPHER, WHEN Y'ALL LOOK AT THE GROWTH.

NO SIR.

IT'S NOT.

NO SIR.

WE HAVE TAKEN ALL THE FLOOR PLANS.

WE'VE IDENTIFIED FOURTEEN THOUSAND PLUS SPACES.

WE'VE IDENTIFIED THEM, WHETHER THEY'RE CLASSROOMS, COMPUTER LABS, K YOU NAME IT, AND WE HAVE COME UP.

THIS IS OUR OWN IN-HOUSE WORK.

OH OK.

OK.

AND SO WE HAVE THAT INFORMATION AND THAT'S WHAT GENERATES THIS.

THE COLUMN THAT SAYS FUNCTIONAL BUILDING CAPACITY IS LITERALLY AS IT SAYS, THAT'S THE BUILDING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PORTABLES.

BUT THAT BEING SAID, IT'S ALSO A MODIFIED NUMBER BECAUSE WE USE AT THE ELEMENTARY.

THAT NUMBER IS NINETY FIVE PERCENT OF THE GROSS NUMBER.

MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL, IT'S 80 PERCENT OF THE GROSS NUMBER.

SO IN EFFECT, IT'S REALLY THE NET BUILDING CAPACITY BASED UPON A MODIFIER.

OK.

I GUESS WHERE I'M GOING IS I'M WONDERING ON THE FUNCTIONAL BUILDING CAPACITY WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CLASSROOM SIZE AND HOW MANY WE'RE GOING TO ALLOW IN THAT CLASSROOM BEFORE WE HAVE TO GO TO ANOTHER CLASSROOM TO FILL ANOTHER SECTION TO ACCOMMODATE THIS BUILDING CAPACITY.

THAT'S KIND OF WHERE MY HEART BEAT IS GOING WITH THIS.

WE'VE DONE A LOT OF WORK TRYING TO COME UP WITH SOME FORMULAS AND RATIONALE THAT ARE COMPUTER GENERATED.

SEVEN HUNDRED SQUARE FEET IS A TYPICAL CLASSROOM SIZE AS WE HAVE THE OLDER BUILDINGS.

A LOT OF THEM WEREN'T SEVEN HUNDRED SQUARE FEET MORE CURRENT STANDARD.

SO WE HAVE MADE SOME ADJUSTMENTS TO THE BASE HEADCOUNT IF THOSE ROOMS FALL BELOW THE SEVEN HUNDRED AND WE STILL CALL THEM A CLASSROOM.

FOR INSTANCE, MEETING WITH SPECIAL ED, EVEN IN OUR NEW BUILDINGS WE HAVE SOME SPECIAL ED CLASSROOMS, BUT THE CAPACITY IS ONLY 10.

THEY'RE BIG ENOUGH FOR 22.

TWENTY TWO.

WE COULD PUT A KINDERGARTEN IN THERE, BUT WE USE A CAPACITY OF 10.

I GOT YOU.

SO FOR INSTANCE, ATHLETICS AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL.

WE USE A CAPACITY IN THE GYM ONLY.

WE DON'T TRY TO CHASE EVERY LOCKER ROOM, EVERY DRESSING ROOM, EVERY FOYER, EVERY DANCE PLACE, BUT WE PUT BECAUSE THEY HAVE P.E.

CLASSES.

AT THE ELEMENTARY WE ONLY LOOKED AT HOME ROOMS. EVERY ELEMENTARY HAS GOT A GYM, ALL THE ELEMENTARY'S HAVE AN ART ROOM, BUT THEY'RE NOT HOME ROOMS. SO THOSE AREN'T CALCULATED IN THE CAPACITY.

KIDS GO THERE.

IT'S A SPECIAL, SO.

OUR FIRST ATTEMPT AT THIS WAS BACK IN 15.

WE LEARNED SOME THINGS.

WE'RE STILL LEARNING.

WE THINK WE'VE REFINED IT.

[00:45:02]

IS IT PERFECT YET? BUT WE'D BE HAPPY TO SHARE, AND WE'VE GOT SOME INFORMATION YOU MAY FIND INTERESTING.

DR. LOPEZ, YOU HAVE HEARD THE QUESTIONS FROM THE BOARD AND THE DEPARTMENTS HAVE HEARD IT AND HOWEVER YOU ALL DECIDE TO GET TOGETHER AND PREPARE SOME TYPE OF PRESENTATION FOR THE FACILITY'S COMMITTEE AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME.

WE WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

ARE THERE ANY OUTSTANDING QUESTIONS THAT.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE A REQUEST SINCE YOU DID OFFER TO LET US BRING IT BACK A LITTLE BIT LATER .

OUR SNAPSHOT IS THAT LAST FRIDAY IN OCTOBER AND SO WE USE THOSE NUMBERS AS SORT OF OUR STANDARD FOR THE YEAR AND WHEN WE'RE PLANNING.

THE DISTRICT SNAPSHOT.

AND SO WE WOULD LIKE TO BRING BACK THE REPORT AFTER SNAPSHOT SO THAT IT HAS OUR KIND OF STANDARD FOR ENROLLMENT SO THAT YOU SEE WHAT WE'RE USING FOR RIGHT NOW.

TO MAKE PLANS FROM.

YES.

IS THAT ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMMITTEE? THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU ALL FOR COMING.

DR. RINGO WE GOT PAUL AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MR.

[IV. B. Discussion Item]

WIGGINS.

TRUSTEES THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NATATORIUM AND THE LEASING AND WHAT TYPE OF BUILDING IT IS.

DR. LOPEZ, I'M SORRY.

DR. RINGO IS GOING TO PASS OUT SOME, INFORMATION.

AND AS YOU LOOK, SOME OF THESE NUMBERS YOU'VE SEEN BEFORE, ESPECIALLY ON PAGE 32, YOU'VE SEEN THESE THE COMMUNITY SWIM AND OURS AND THE PUNCH CARDS AND ALL OF THAT.

YOU'VE SEEN THE COMMUNITY RENTALS AND WHAT THE LANES ARE AND ALL OF THAT PER HOUR.

AND THEN ON PAGE 34, YOU SEE THE NATATORIUM OPERATIONS, PROPOSED REVENUES OR WHATEVER.

BUT WHAT THIS IS FOR TODAY IS TO BASICALLY LOOK AT WHAT THE CONTRACT IS THAT WE'RE USING AND FOR THE BOARD TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TYPE OF BUILDING THIS IS.

IT IS EASY TO SAY IT IS A STANDALONE BUILDING AND THERE HAVE BEEN SOME QUESTIONS, BUT IT'S ACTUALLY A CLASSROOM IN A BUILDING DOING A SPECIFIC TASK.

SO YOU HAVE THE CONTRACT THAT'S BEFORE YOU.

AND THEN WHEN WE LOOK AT WHAT IS THE WHOLE OPERATIONAL EXPENSES OF THE NATATORIUM THAT WILL COVER AND WE WOULD SEE THIS ADDED AS INDIVIDUAL ITEMS, SO WE WILL KNOW WHAT THE COSTS ARE, LET ME NOT KNOW, THE PROJECTED COSTS OF ACTUALLY RUNNING THE NATATORIUM, AND I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO DR.

RINGO.

MS. GRIFFIN BOARD OF TRUSTEES DR.

LOPEZ.

GOOD AFTERNOON! PRESENTED IS EXACTLY WHAT MS. GRIFFIN NOTED THE GARLAND ISD NATATORIUM FACILITY LEASING AND OPERATIONS AND REALLY WE'RE FOCUSED ON IS THE LEASING AND RENTAL OF THE AUDITORIUM IN TODAY'S PRESENTATION AND WHAT COACH WIGGINS HAD SHARED TO BRING BACK FOR THAT TRANSPARENCY PIECE WITHIN OUR FACILITY LEASING.

WE DO HAVE COMMUNITY SWIM MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY EVENINGS AND SATURDAYS.

IT UTILIZES THE INSTRUCTIONAL COMPETITION POOLS.

IT'S A P CARD OR PURCHASE PUNCH CARD, I SHOULD SAY ONLINE FOR ENROLLMENT AND RECEIPT.

THIRTY DOLLARS IS FIFTEEN PUNCHES FOR GISD STAFF, STUDENTS AND SENIOR CITIZENS.

FORTY FIVE DOLLARS FOR GENERAL PUBLIC WE'LL SHARE THAT REVENUE BREAKDOWN WITH YOU TODAY.

LAP SWIMMING IS OFFERED.

AND OF COURSE, THE DIVING BOARDS, HOT TUB, WEIGHT ROOMS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC USE WITH THAT.

YOU'RE KIND OF FADING A LITTLE BIT DR.

RINGO.

THANK YOU.

OK, IS THAT BETTER? THAT'S MUCH BETTER.

FOR OUR COMMUNITY RENTALS THIS IS A PER HOUR FEE AND PROVIDED IN THE MANILA FOLDER IS AN EXAMPLE CONTRACT OF HOW THAT IS BROKEN OUT.

AND SO WHEN IN THAT EXAMPLE CONTRACT IT IS THE STAPLED DOCUMENT, IT HAS THE AGENDA COVER SHEET FOR THIS ITEM.

WHEN YOU OPEN THAT UP, YOU'LL SEE THE FRONT PAGE OF THAT CONTRACT THAT IS REALLY JUST TALKING ABOUT THE TERMS CONDITIONS INSURANCE TITLE.

BUT WHEN YOU GO TO PAGE THREE OF 13, YOU CAN SEE A SPREADSHEET BREAKING OUT THAT TOTAL COST BY DATE, HOW MANY HOURS, THE TIME, THE LANE FEE PER HOUR AND THE NUMBER

[00:50:05]

OF LANES BEING USED.

AND AGAIN, SO BREAKING IT OUT PER HOUR, JUST VERY HIGH LEVEL GOING BACK TO THE PRESENTATION.

THAT, PER HOUR FEE IS VERY COMPARABLE TO OTHER NATATORIUMS IN THE AREA.

THAT PROCESS STARTS BY CONTACTING OUR AQUATICS MANAGER, MR. WIGGINS, AND THEN THE LEASING DEPARTMENT FOR THE DISTRICT.

SCHEDULED EVENTS.

THE SCHEDULE EVENTS ARE PUBLISHED ON THE NATATORIUM WEB PAGE ON THE WEBSITE.

EXCUSE ME DR. RINGO.

TELL US WHERE THE LEASING COMMITTEE LEASING GROUP RESIDES.

IT RESIDES.

GREAT QUESTION.

THAT IS DEB BOSCO UNDER OUR FACILITIES DEPARTMENT AND FACILITIES LEASING.

SO DEB BOSCO OVERSEES THAT PROCESS FOR THE ENTIRE DISTRICT, NOT JUST THE NATATORIUM.

AND WHEN I SAY THE ENTIRE DISTRICT, ALL FACILITIES, EXCLUDING THE CURTIS CULWELL CENTER.

THANK YOU.

AND THESE EVENTS ARE PUBLISHED ON OUR DISTRICT WEB PAGE.

THE RENTALS CURRENTLY INCLUDE OUR COMPETITION SWIMMING, WATER POLO AND SWIMMING LESSONS.

AND SO AS YOU CAN SEE OVER AT THE RIGHT HAND SIDE, AGAIN, THESE ARE PER OUR FEES.

SO IF A GROUP IS IN THERE ALL DAY, THEY'RE GOING TO PAY FOR THE HOUR FOR THESE FEES SO THAT IS WHERE THOSE DOLLARS ADD UP IN THIS PROCESS.

OPERATIONS AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE DETAILS.

THERE'S BEEN UPDATES NOW THAT WE'RE THROUGH THE YEAR AND BEEN RECONCILED NOW THROUGH AUGUST.

BUT YOU CAN SEE OUR REVENUE ACTUAL JULY ONE TO AUGUST 31.

OUR FISCAL YEAR IS JULY ONE THROUGH THE END OF JUNE EACH YEAR.

SO THAT'S HOW OUR REVENUES ARE CALCULATED AND PROJECTED.

WE DID.

THIS IS A GENERAL FUND BUDGET OPERATION.

THIS IS AN INVESTMENT FOR LEARNING FOR OUR STUDENTS.

ALL SECOND GRADERS GO TO THIS FACILITY.

OUR HIGH SCHOOL SWIM TEAMS USE THIS FACILITY.

AND SO IT IS AN INVESTMENT TO THE DISTRICT FOR LEARNING.

SO ALL REVENUE AND ALL EXPENDITURES ARE ADOPTED WITHIN OUR GENERAL FUND BUDGET AND WE TRACK IT BY THE FACILITY SO WE KNOW HOW MUCH WE SPENT TO THE DOLLAR FOR THAT FACILITY.

AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT THOSE DETAILS SHORTLY.

WE ALSO KNOW HOW MUCH BY TYPE OF EVENT WE BRING IN REVENUE TO THAT FACILITY AND THAT REVENUE GOES INTO OUR GENERAL FUND REVENUE FOR THE YEAR TO HELP BALANCE THOSE OPERATIONS.

THE GOAL OF THIS OPERATION IS THAT EVENTUALLY IT DOES SUPPORT ITSELF, MEANING THAT THE REVENUES EQUAL OR EXCEED THOSE GENERAL FUND EXPENDITURES.

AND WE'RE STILL IN COVID OPERATIONS.

WE'LL TALK ABOUT THOSE DETAILS OF WHAT THE REVENUES LOOK LIKE AND THE PROJECTIONS FOR THE YEAR SHORTLY.

BUT AGAIN, JUST TO HIGHLIGHT THIS AS A GENERAL FUND BUDGET OPERATION AND SUPPORTED JUST VERY SIMILAR TO LIKE A CAMPUS OR DEPARTMENT IS SUPPORTED IN THEIR OPERATIONS.

COULD I ASK YOU TO PAUSE RIGHT NOW? YES, MA'AM.

DR.

RINGO AND I WOULD ASK IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS FROM BOARD MEMBERS UP TO WHAT'S BEEN DISCUSSED, NOT WHAT'S IN YOUR FOLDER, BECAUSE HE'S GOING TO GET TO THE REST OF THAT, BUT BASED ON WHAT HE'S DISCUSSED UP FRONT.

MR. JOHNSON.

YEAH.

DR. RINGO WITH RESPECT TO THE REVENUE THAT YOU HAVE LISTED THERE OF SIXTY ONE THOUSAND SEVEN FIFTEEN, IS THAT THE FUNDS THAT WE RECEIVED, THOSE AREN'T NECESSARILY JUST FOR THOSE TWO MONTHS, THOUGH.

SOME PEOPLE MAY HAVE PAID FOR THE USE OF FACILITY FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR IN THAT TIME FRAME.

IS THAT ACCURATE? WE AT THIS TIME HAVE NOT HAD ANYBODY I'M AWARE OF THAT HAS PAID IN ADVANCE FOR THE WHOLE YEAR.

NOW THEY HAVE MAYBE PAID A DOWN DEPOSIT FOR RESERVATION FOR A FUTURE EVENT.

BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM WE'VE COLLECTED ALL THAT REVENUE AT THAT POINT AT THIS TIME.

OK, SO THEN WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY THAT THE SIXTY ONE THOUSAND SEVEN FIFTEEN THAT'S REFLECTED UP THERE FOR REVENUE FROM JULY ONE THROUGH AUGUST THIRTY ONE, IT WAS SOLELY FOR OPERATIONS THAT HAPPEN BETWEEN JULY ONE AND AUGUST 31.

YES, SIR, THAT IS CORRECT.

SO YOU'RE SAYING THE NATATORIUM IS ALREADY EXCEEDING ITS EXPENDITURES.

FOR THOSE TWO MONTHS NOW WE'VE ACTUALLY HAD SOME RECONCILIATION AND WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT IN THE DETAIL, IN THE MANILA FOLDER, WHERE THAT REVENUE IS ACTUALLY A LITTLE BIT HIGHER THAN WHAT THIS IS REFLECTING.

NOW WHEN THESE NUMBERS WERE FINALIZED, IT WAS IN AUGUST IN ORDER TO GET BOARD DOCS DONE.

NOW THAT WE'RE MIDWAY THROUGH SEPTEMBER AND WE'RE CLOSING OUT LAST MONTH.

BUT YES, SIR, WE HAVE EXCEEDED OUR EXPENDITURES FOR THAT TIME FRAME.

OK, I JUST WANTED TO CLEAR THAT UP.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS ON WHAT HAS BEEN PRESENTED THUS FAR? ALL RIGHT.

WOULD YOU PROCEED DR.

RINGO? YES.

THANK YOU, MS. GRIFFIN.

AND IF YOU, I WILL NOT GO THROUGH ALL THE DETAILS OF THE CONTRACT YOU CAN SEE REALLY, THE CONTRACT IS ALL THE LEGALITIES OF USAGE FEE, SECURITY, WHO TO CONTACT IF THERE'S AN EMERGENCY.

IT IS A VERY DETAILED CONTRACT AND BEEN VETTED THROUGH LEGAL.

BUT IF YOU GO TO PAGE SEVEN OF 13, THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF A RECURRING RENTAL REQUEST DETAILS AND WHERE THAT REQUESTER AND APPLICANT WILL PUT IN THE NUMBER OF LANES NEEDED STARTING IN TIME.

[00:55:01]

WHO, IF IT'S A SWIM MEET, WHO THE DIRECTOR IS, THE CONTACT NUMBER EMAIL ADDRESSES.

THEY WORK WITH PHILIP WIGGINS ON COMPLETING THIS INFORMATION.

IF YOU TURN TO PAGE EIGHT OF 13, THERE'S ALSO A SWIM MEET LAYOUT REQUEST.

TWENTY FIVE YARDS.

TWENTY FIVE METERS.

50 METERS.

SCORE TIMING BOARDS.

USE OF TIMING BOARDS.

CONCESSION STANDS.

IT'S SIMILAR TO OUR HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL STADIUMS. OUR CONCESSIONAIRE DOES RUN THE NATATORIUM AND SIMILAR TO OUR HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL STADIUMS. THEY DO WORK THAT IS A.

MS. GRIFFIN, I JUST WENT BLANK.

[LAUGHTER] THAT IS.

ED CAMPBELL.

ED CAMPBELL, CONCESSIONAIRE.

THANK YOU.

BUT THEY'VE DONE A GREAT JOB RUNNING OUR STADIUMS, AND SO WHAT HE DOES IS FINDS A BOOSTER GROUP THAT DOES ITS PART OF THEIR FUNDRAISING.

IT GETS HIM AS WE KNOW IN THE ECONOMY RIGHT NOW THERE IS A STAFFING SHORTAGE OF ALL LEVELS OF POSITIONS.

AND SO MR. CAMPBELL UTILIZES OUR BOOSTER GROUPS TO HELP RUN HIS CONCESSIONS AND THEY GET A CUT OF THAT.

AND SO HE WORKS DIRECTLY WITH OUR BOOSTER PRESIDENTS AND TREASURERS THAT PROCESS SO BASED ON WHAT WE SEE AT THE STADIUM HE DOES AT THE NATATORIUM TO SUPPORT THAT OPERATION .

AND THEN EXHIBIT B, WHICH STARTS ON PAGE NINE.

THERE'S ALL THE RULES AND REGULATIONS WHEN USING OUR FACILITY, FROM THE DIVING BOARDS TO FOOD AND DRINKS AND WHERE THEY CAN BE CONSUMED.

I WILL NOT TALK THROUGH ALL THAT.

IF YOU GO TO PAGE 11, THIS IS THE CLASSIFICATION AND PRICING WHICH IS EXHIBIT C.

YOU CAN SEE THE POOLING USE AN THE PER HOUR CHARGES.

THE NON POOL AREAS, THE PER HOUR CHARGES.

IF WE NEED DISTRICT PERSONNEL ON SITE IF YOU'RE RUNNING OUR FACILITY.

AND SO WHAT IT COSTS TO HAVE AN ADMINISTRATOR, CUSTODIANS AND LIFEGUARDS, THOSE FEES ARE PASSED ON TO THE PERSON USING THE FACILITY, EVEN POLICE AND SECURITY, PARKING LOT MONITOR.

AND THEN IF THROUGH THOSE DISCUSSIONS AND SPECIFIC REQUEST, THERE'S A MISCELLANEOUS ITEM WHERE COACH WIGGINS IS ABLE TO ALSO HAVE WITH EXTRA TRASH PICKUP OR ANY OTHER ITEMS THAT MAY BE NEEDED IN THOSE FEES AND THEN THE SECURITY DEPOSIT TO RESERVE IT AT A FUTURE DATE.

AND THEN EXHIBIT D, WHICH IS PAGE 13.

IT'S THE LEASING INFORMATION AND COVID GUIDELINES.

SO SINCE WE ARE IN A COVID OPERATIONS, BUT THAT IS THE STANDARD CONTRACT THAT HAS WORKED THROUGH FOR SOMEBODY WHO IS UTILIZING OUR FACILITY.

THEN WHAT I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO SEE NEXT IS THESE REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES NOW THAT WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO TIE OUT THROUGH THE END OF AUGUST.

SO THE VERY FIRST PAGE YOU SEE IS NATATORIUM 21 22 AT THE TOP.

THERE'S IN ORDER FOR EASE OF READING THIS INFORMATION, THERE'S A SUMMARY.

AND THEN FROM THE SUMMARY, WE'LL DIVE INTO THE DETAILS.

I DID NOT PUT IT ALL ON ONE PAGE BECAUSE IT WAS A LOT OF INFORMATION ON ONE PAGE TO LOOK AT.

BUT YOU CAN SEE WITH OUR REVENUE RENT OF SCHOOL FACILITIES AND MISCELLANEOUS REVENUE, WE PROJECTED 500,000 FOR THE YEAR.

SO IN OUR ADOPTED GENERAL FUND REVENUE BUDGET, THAT FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND NUMBER IS THERE AS A PROJECTION.

ACTUALS DURING THIS TIME FRAME ARE AT SEVENTY SEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT ONE FIVE.

SO NOW THAT WE'RE ABLE TO CLOSE OUT THE AUGUST AND DO OUR SETTLE UPS.

TOTAL REVENUE BEING SEVENTY SEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT FIFTEEN.

OUR EXPENDITURES, WE BROKE IT OUT VERY SIMILAR TO SEE HOW YOU SEE OUR GENERAL FUND EXPENDITURE REPORT AND EACH MONTH'S BOARD MEETING.

SIXTY ONE HUNDRED PAYROLL COSTS, THAT IS WHAT IS IN THE ADOPTED EXPENSE BUDGET FOR GENERAL FUND.

THE SIX TWO HUNDRED PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, SIXTY THREE HUNDRED SUPPLIES AND MATERIALS, SIXTY FOUR HUNDRED OTHER OPERATING COSTS.

SO OUR TOTAL EXPENDITURE BUDGET AND THE GENERAL FUND BEING AT NINE NINETY FIVE FIVE SIX FOUR.

THAT, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLAR REVENUE PROJECTION AGAIN WAS A CONSERVATIVE PROJECTION DUE TO COVID OPERATIONS AND LOOKING AT NATATORIUM REVENUE IN COMPARABLE DISTRICTS.

DR.

RINGO WOULD YOU EXPLAIN WHAT PROFESSIONAL SERVICES ARE? YES.

SO WITHIN THAT MIGHT BE THEY CONTRACT.

AND I'LL HAVE COACH WIGGINS COME UP FOR VARIOUS SPECIFICS WITH NATATORIUM, BUT THEY COULD BE WHERE THEY CAN CONTRACT LIFEGUARDS TO COME IN FROM AN OUTSIDE COMPANY.

BUT I WILL HIGHLIGHT WITH WHAT IS IN HIS OWN BUDGET TO SPECIFY WHAT OUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES ARE TO SEE HE'S UTILIZING THESE FUNDS FOR.

WHERE'S THAT REFERENCE? RIGHT HERE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT.

CONTRACTED SERVICES.

THAT WOULD BE MS. GRIFFIN UTILITIES.

THAT'S GOING TO BE IF THERE'S A SPECIFIC NEED WITH HE'S CONTRACTING A PROFESSIONAL TO COME IN AND DO SOME WORK ON THE EQUIPMENT THE BREAKDOWN OF THE EQUIPMENT.

THAT IS WHERE THOSE FUNDS WOULD HIT.

NOW AGAIN, THE DOLLARS CAN MOVE WITHIN 62, 63, OR 6,400 HUNDRED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OPERATIONS FOR THAT YEAR.

[01:00:02]

BUT THAT'S WHAT 6400 OUR EXPENDITURES WOULD LIE FOR THAT NEED.

SINCE THIS IS A NEW BUILDING WITH CLEANING DID WE JUST ROLLED THAT BUILDING IN UP UNDER OUR EXISTING CLEANING OR HOW DID THAT WORK? YES.

SO AS WE CONTRACT OUR CUSTODIANS, AND THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

IF THEY'RE EMPLOYED AND MR. GONZALES, COME UP SPEAK UP DIRECTLY WITH THE CUSTODIANS.

BECAUSE WE KNEW THAT THE NATATORIUM WAS GOING TO BE A VERY, VERY HIGH USAGE FACILITY, WE DECIDED TO EMPLOY OUR OWN EMPLOYEES TO CLEAN THAT FACILITY, SO GISD EMPLOYEES CLEAN THE FACILITY.

THAT'S VERY OK.

YEAH.

VERY GOOD.

MR. BEACH.

DO THEY DO THE CHLORINE AND THE WATER TESTING? OUR PEOPLE.

CURRENTLY RIGHT NOW AND PHILIP CAN TALK MORE ABOUT THIS.

WE HAVE A FULL TIME MAINTENANCE EMPLOYEE THAT ASSISTS PHILIP.

AND PHILIP YOU CAN TELL THEM ABOUT THE CHLORINE OPERATIONS.

SO WE DO HAVE THE FULL TIME FACILITY MAINTENANCE PERSON, BUT WE ALSO HAVE CONTRACTED OUT MAINTENANCE AND PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS FOR IT AS WELL.

ONE OF THEM IS THROUGH SUNBELT.

THE OTHER ONE THE CHEMICALS WE RECEIVE IS THROUGH DALLAS CHEMICAL COMPANY DCC.

AND SO THEY ALL WORK TOGETHER TO SERVICE THAT TO SERVICE MOST OF THE DIFFERENT MACHINES OR OPERATIONAL THINGS TOO DOES THAT FALL UNDER THE PROFESSIONAL SERVICES CATEGORY? YES, SIR.

THE MAJORITY OF IT DOES.

YES, SIR.

OK.

I WAS GOING TO ASK ANOTHER QUESTION ON THE RENTAL REQUEST.

YES SIR.

FROM START TO FINISH, HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE SOMEONE, AN INDIVIDUAL OR A GROUP TO GET THE APPLICATION TO YOU AND TO GET SET UP.

IN OTHER WORDS ARE WE ON A FAST TRACK THERE OR IS IT LIKE A WEEK WAIT OR TO A TWO WEEK WAIT.

NO IT WOULD BE OVER A MONTH.

THE LEASING APARTMENT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO PROVIDE PROOF OF INSURANCE.

INSURANCE.

AND HAVE US LISTED ON THAT INSURANCE.

ACTUALLY OUTSIDE OF THAT BE 45 DAYS PROBABLY WOULD BE IDEAL.

BUT ONCE THEY GET SET UP, THEN THEY ARE GOOD TO GO.

I MEAN AS FAR AS.

YES, SIR.

SO THEY'LL CONTACT ME SO THAT WE SHOW TO SEE IF WE HAVE AVAILABILITY AND THEN TALK TO THEM, SEND THEM THAT LEASING AGREEMENT, AND WE'LL TALK AGAIN ABOUT IT TO MAKE SURE WE CAN PROVIDE WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR.

ARE YOU HAVING A LOT OF GOOD LEADS RIGHT NOW? YES, SIR, WE ARE.

WE ARE.

I THINK I REALLY DO EXPECT FOR THE SPRING, FOR US AND FOR THE SUMMER FOR US TO REALLY HAVE A LOT MORE OPPORTUNITIES AS WE MOVE YOU KNOW, PAST COVID.

PERFECT.

OK, WE CAN CONTINUE.

NOW THAT YOU'VE SEEN THE HIGH LEVEL SUMMARY OF REVENUE EXPENDITURES IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT PAGE, WHICH TALKS ABOUT ACTUAL EVENT ACTIVITY.

THESE ARE THE EVENTS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED AT THE NATATORIUM AND THE DOLLAR AMOUNT THAT GENERATED FOR THE NATATORIUM.

AND SO YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE SEVENTY SEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT FIFTEEN COMES IN AND ACTIVITY FROM WHEN WE WERE ABLE TO CLOSE OUT THOSE FINANCIALS.

I WON'T READ THROUGH ALL OF THOSE DETAILS, BUT YOU CAN SEE WHAT THOSE DOLLAR AMOUNTS ARE FOR THOSE ACTIVITIES.

THEN THE FINAL PAGE IS JUST.

THIS IS WHY IT'S A LOT OF DETAIL AND BROKEN OUT TO THREE PAGES FOR EASE OF READING.

THE FINAL PAGE, WHICH IS THE PROJECTED FROM CURRENT ACTIVITY THROUGH AUGUST 2021.

SO AS WE LOOK THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR, COACH WIGGINS DOES EXPECT TWO BIG EVENTS PER MONTH IN THAT FACILITY.

THERE CAN ALWAYS BE MORE NOW THAT WE'RE COMING OUT OF COVID OPERATIONS AND OUR FACILITY IS BEING UTILIZED AND MORE AND MORE PEOPLE COME THROUGH THAT FACILITY THAT CAN ALWAYS BE EXPANDED, BUT A VERY CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE YOU CAN SEE FOR EACH MONTH, FROM DAILY RENTALS TO MEETS AND THOSE ESTIMATES PER MONTH.

AND THEN WE DID A BREAKDOWN AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT FOR YOU BY MONTH OF WHAT VERY HIGH LEVEL AND AGAIN, VERY CONSERVATIVE DURING COVID OPERATIONS.

BECAUSE AS WE SUSPECT, AS WE'VE SEEN COMING OUT OF COVID OPERATIONS, WE'RE HAVING MORE FANS AT GAMES AT THE STADIUMS THIS YEAR.

WE ALSO SUSPECT THAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN MORE AT THE NATATORIUM AS THAT FACILITY IS UTILIZED.

LET ME FIRST THANK DR.

RINGO AND MR. GONZALES AND MR. WIGGINS.

I THINK YOU ALL HAVE ANSWERED ALL THE QUESTIONS THAT HAD COME TO ME THAT I PASSED ON TO THEM.

AND SO NOW I WILL OPEN THE FLOOR IF THERE ARE SOME OTHER QUESTIONS OR ANYTHING THAT WASN'T DISCUSSED.

AND I THINK PRESIDENT MILLER HAS A QUESTION.

YEAH, I HAVE A QUESTION PROBABLY FOR MR. WIGGINS.

JUST YOU KNOW, THERE'S DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE THE POOL, SWIMMING, DIVING, POLO, TRAINING, LAP POOL, PARTIES, MAYBE.

I MEAN, HOW IS THE FACILITY SERVING THOSE NEEDS? ARE YOU GETTING GOOD FEEDBACK? JUST KIND OF TELL US WHAT THE IMPRESSION IS.

[01:05:02]

WHAT YOU'RE HEARING IS FEEDBACK WHEN PEOPLE RENT IT AND USE IT FOR THEIR PURPOSES.

WELL, WE WERE FORTUNATE TO HAVE THIS SUMMER TO HAVE SEVERAL, SEVERAL LARGE EVENTS FROM PEOPLE THAT WERE FROM ALL OVER, ALL OVER THE NATION AND SO GREAT AIR QUALITY.

YOU KNOW, I HEARD ABOUT A LOT.

LOVED THE DECK SPACE, GREAT LIGHTING, GREAT POOL, FAST POOL.

AND TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, WE'RE BLESSED TO HAVE A GOOD STAFF.

SO I HAD LOTS OF POSITIVE COMMENTS FOR THE STAFF THAT WE HAD.

SO THEY THEY WANT TO COME BACK.

THEY'VE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT COMING BACK NEXT YEAR, MAYBE EVEN SO.

ONE OF THEM WAS THE JUNIOR NATIONAL WATER POLO TOURNAMENT, WHICH IS ALWAYS HELD IN CALIFORNIA.

BUT BECAUSE OF SOME COVID RESTRICTIONS, THEY MOVED TO THE METROPLEX.

BUT THERE HAS BEEN TALK ABOUT BRINGING A SECTION OF THAT BACK BECAUSE THEY HAD SUCH A GOOD EXPERIENCE.

ON THE OTHER SIDE FOR THE LEASING, LOTS OF AVAILABILITY FOR LANE SPACE BECAUSE WE CAN SET THE POOL UP IN DIFFERENT FUNCTIONS, LIKE YOU SAID, AND WE HAVE ONE GROUP DOING LESSONS IN THE INSTRUCTIONAL POOL.

ONE GROUP, MAYBE A CLUB SWIM TEAM SWIMMING IN THESE 10 LANES, LIKE WE HAVE IT SET UP RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE THE FIVE LANES DOING COMMUNITY SWIM, THEN WE HAVE AN HOUR OF MASTER SWIMMING AND WE HAVE THE CLUB WATER POLO GOING ON OVER HERE.

WE ARE ALSO WORKING WITH THE WELLNESS SIDE FOR GISD TO LOOK TO TRY TO ADD SOME MORE PROGRAMING FOR THE DISTRICT TALK, IF YOU WILL, ABOUT THE ADDITIONAL SCOREBOARD AND THE UTILITY THAT THAT GIVES YOU.

OH, WELL, THAT'S ALSO BEEN A BIG PLUS AND SO MAINLY FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT SAY THEY JUST CAN'T SEE THAT FAR DOWN.

BUT I KNOW THE SCORE BOARD'S BIG ENOUGH.

BUT NO, IT DOES ALLOW US TO DO MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS AT ONE TIME.

SO WE CAN SPLIT THE BOARD AND HAVE TWO MEETS RUNNING ON ONE.

WE CAN RUN TOTALLY DIFFERENT RESULTS AND INFORMATION ON THIS BOARD.

WHEN WE DID HAVE THE WATER POLO, WE RAN TWO DIFFERENT POOLS AND SO WE HAD ONE RUNNING ON ONE POOL AND THEN WE HAD ONE RUNNING ON THE OTHER POOL.

SO IT DOES ALLOW US TO TO REALLY BE MULTI-FUNCTIONAL.

MR. SELDERS.

I HAD A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS FROM SOME COMMUNITY MEMBERS REGARDING COMMUNITY SWIM, AND I THINK I GOT SOME ANSWERS FROM DR.

GRIFFIN.

BUT JUST SO THAT YOU CAN KIND OF TALK TO THIS OPEN FORMAT AND ANSWER THE QUESTION WITH RESPECT TO THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC USE DURING COMMUNITY SWIM AS IT RELATES TO THE WEIGHT ROOM, LOCKER ROOM, SHOWERS, DIVING BOARD, HOT TUBS AND THE RATIONALE THAT THE DISTRICT HAS FOR THAT.

FOR ME ON MY SIDE, THINKING ABOUT RUNNING THE FACILITY IN A RISK MANAGEMENT SIDE WOULD BE ON THE WEIGHT ROOM BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE ANYONE TO MONITOR IT, AND IT IS STILL COME UNDER COVID AND CLEANING IT.

AND BECAUSE THAT MAINLY WAS BUILT FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO HAVE ACCESS TO.

THE SAME ON THE DIVING BOARDS.

SO THOSE AREN'T LIKE YOUR BACKYARD POOL DIVING BOARDS, THEY'RE VERY, VERY SPRINGY.

AND SO SOMEONE THAT'S NOT EXPERIENCED ABOUT IT COULD GET THROWN OFF, COULD GET INJURED AND HURT.

SO I SEE IT IS A RISK AND LIABILITY AS WELL, AND IT WOULD BE THE SAME FOR THE HOT TUB.

THE HOT TUBS ARE ACTUALLY VERY HARD TO CONTROL AND TO MANAGE CHEMICAL WISE.

SO IF WE CAN LIMIT THE ACCESS THAT'S IN THERE, THEN THAT'S A PLUS FOR US, I THINK ON THAT SIDE AS WELL.

SO WE'RE STILL UNDER SOME FOR ME, SOME COVID STUFF FOR THE LOCKER ROOMS AS WELL.

WE'RE THE ONLY FACILITY THAT'S FOR ATHLETICS THAT'S SHARING OUR LOCKER ROOMS. THOSE ARE THE HIGH SCHOOL LOCKER ROOMS AS WELL FOR OUR STUDENT ATHLETES.

AND SO I THINK TO LIMIT THE WEAR AND TEAR AND THE USE OF THAT IS A POSITIVE AS WELL.

THAT'S ALSO A CHALLENGE, RIGHT? SO IN ALL IN THERE, PLUS IT'S MAINLY OUR STUFF IS 5:15 TO 8:15 AT NIGHT, SO.

OK, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? OK, THANK YOU.

THIS TEAM IS GOING TO REMAIN UP BECAUSE OCT 16TH, TRUSTEES IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FOR OUR GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION, AND I WOULD CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO PAGE THIRTY EIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING WE WANT TO SEE OR HAS COME TO ME AND WE TALKED ABOUT EARLIER IN THIS GRAND OPENING.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SAY AND I'M NOT CRITICIZING, BUT WE HAVE LEARNED THAT THE MORE LEAD TIME WE CAN GIVE FOR OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND THE TRI-CITIES, THE BETTER PARTICIPATION AND ATTENDANCE WE WILL HAVE AT THE GRAND OPENING.

[01:10:02]

SO WHAT WE HAVE RIGHT HERE ARE THE ITEMS THAT ARE GOING TO BE DISCUSSED.

BUT BEFORE WE DO THAT, THEY MAY ARE GOING TO COVER IT IN THEIR REPORT.

BUT I'M GOING TO ASK IT NOW.

IS THIS GOING TO BE AN OUTDOOR GRAND CELEBRATION OR GRAND OPENING? WE HAVE THAT OPEN SPACE INSIDE.

BUT IF WE LOOK AT THREE CITIES AND CITY COUNCIL AND MAYORS AND CITY MANAGERS LOOK AT US, LOOK AT OUR STATE AND FEDERAL OFFICIALS THAT REPRESENT, I JUST WANT TO GET A FEEL FROM THE BOARD AND MAYBE THEY'LL ANSWER THE QUESTION, BUT I WANTED TO THROW IT OUT TO THE BOARD FIRST, IS DO YOU ALL SEE THIS AS AN INDOOR OR AN OUTDOOR GRAND OPENING? AND THIS IS A QUESTION TO THE BOARD MEMBERS.

I WILL GO WITH MY COMMITTEE MEMBERS FIRST AND THEN I'LL COME TO THE PRESIDENT.

I DON'T KNOW.

I MAY NEED TO GO TO MR. SELDERS FIRST.

YOU'RE DOING A BIT A LOT OF LAUGHING MS. STANLEY.

OK, SO I'M GOING TO GO TO MR. SELDERS FIRST.

MR. SELDERS.

WE JUST NEED AN INDOOR OUTDOOR.

JUST.

OK.

OK.

OK.

ALL RIGHT, YOU'RE MIKE, OK? MS. STANLEY.

I THINK YOU HAVE TO DO AN OUTDOOR.

I DON'T THINK IT'S ENOUGH FOR INDOOR.

OK, IT'S JUST SOMETHING WE NEED TO DISCUSS.

AND MR. MILLER.

A GRAND OPENING OF THE NATATORIUM.

I MEAN, WE DRIVE BY AND SEE THE OUTSIDE ALL THE TIME, I THINK IT'S GOT TO BE INDOOR.

NO, IT'S GOING TO BE TOURS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT FOR THE BRIEF CELEBRATION.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT FOR THE PROGRAM AND THE RECOGNITION.

BUT IF YOU LOOK AT.

SO ARE YOU CONTEMPLATING THAT LIKE WITH A TENT, SOME WAY TO PROTECT AGAINST POTENTIAL RAIN AND WATER? ALL I'M SAYING IS I WANTED TO KNOW THE BOARD'S THOUGHTS ON THAT, AND THEN STAFF AND DR.

LOPEZ CAN WORK THAT OUT.

MY THOUGHTS ARE WE GOT, IF NOTHING ELSE, WE GOT A STADIUM THAT'LL SEAT 12000 PEOPLE.

I DON'T THINK WE'RE GOING TO HAVE NEAR THAT.

WE COULD DISTANCE IN SPACE AND HAVE A PRESENTATION FROM WITHIN THE NATATORIUM, AND I THINK THAT WOULD HAVE THE GREATEST IMPACT.

BUT I DON'T.

OK, AND WE CAN.

OK, SEE YOU ALL SEE WHY I TOLD YOU IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT CONCEPTS.

OK? ANYONE ELSE? MR. JOHNSON.

WENT FROM DAPHNE TO JAMIE.

WELL, HE HAD HIS HAND UP FIRST, SO I HAD SKIPPED HIM.

I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING IN ORDER.

NO, I HAD SKIPPED HIM.

[LAUGHTER] MY THOUGHTS WERE SIMILAR TO WHAT JAMIE HAS.

I MEAN, I UNDERSTAND.

I MEAN, WHEN WE DID THE GROUNDBREAKING, WE DID IT OUTSIDE.

THAT MADE SENSE.

THERE WASN'T A BUILDING THERE.

BUT IN THIS CASE, THE WHOLE THING THAT WE'RE CELEBRATING IS THE POOL.

SO WE HAVE, HE'S RIGHT.

WE HAVE A STADIUM INSIDE THE POOL.

THERE'S PLENTY OF ROOM TO SPACE OUT INSIDE THAT BUILDING.

I THINK WE DO IT INSIDE.

OK.

MR. BEACH YOU HAVE IT.

INSIDE.

MR. GLICK.

INSIDE.

OK, NOW I GUESS YOU ALL CAN BRING YOUR PRESENTATION.

NOW THAT YOU KNOW WHAT THE REQUEST IS OF THE BOARD, PROBABLY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT YOU SUSPECTED.

OK.

MS. GRIFFIN, BOARD OF TRUSTEES DR.

LOPEZ THANK YOU FOR THAT FEEDBACK BECAUSE IT DOES HELP IN THE PLANNING.

AND TODAY MS. LIGHTFOOT AND I ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE NATATORIUM GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION FOR DISCUSSION.

AS A REMINDER THE BOARD HAD AGREED TO SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16TH AT 9:00 A.M..

THE GOAL TODAY IS TO DISCUSS THE INVITATIONS AND MS. LIGHTFOOT, I WILL TURN IT OVER TO HER TO TALK ABOUT SOME INVITATIONS AND DIFFERENT INFORMATION SHE HAS WHILE SHE PASSES THAT OUT.

ALSO, IT INVOLVES THE RIBBON CUTTING.

THERE'LL BE A PROGRAM FORMAT OF WELCOME AND SPEAKERS REFRESHMENTS GUEST LIST TO INCLUDE ANY FEEDBACK FROM THESE DISCUSSIONS.

THAT DOES INCLUDE THE CHAMBERS FROM GARLAND, ROWLETT AND SACHSE, THE ELECTED OFFICIALS FROM GARLAND, ROWLETT AND SACHSE, AND STATE OFFICIALS TOO, EVEN FEDERAL, THE BOND COMMITTEE, THE ARCHITECT, CONSTRUCTION MANAGER, OTHER INVITED GUESTS.

OBVIOUSLY ESTABLISHING THE DATE FOR THAT INVITATION TO GO OUT HAVING TOURS WITHIN THE NATATORIUM AND THE LOCATION.

BUT BEFORE WE PROCEED ANY FURTHER IN THESE DISCUSSIONS, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MS. LIGHTFOOT.

GOOD AFTERNOON, CHAIR MEMBERS, BOARD PRESIDENT DR.

LOPEZ, IN YOUR FOLDERS, YOU WILL SEE A COPY OF EVERYTHING IN HERE IS DRAFT

[01:15:06]

FORM AND SO THANK YOU SO MUCH MS. GRIFFIN FOR HELPING US GET THIS EVENT AT THE PLEASURE OF THE BOARD AND TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION.

SO EVERYTHING HERE TODAY IS JUST SIMPLY A DRAFT.

WE WANT YOUR INPUT.

WE WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS ARE AND WHAT YOU GUYS WOULD LIKE TO SEE, AND THEN WE WILL ADJUST ACCORDINGLY.

SO WHAT YOU SEE BEFORE YOU IS JUST A DRAFT IN THIS FOLDER HERE OR IN THIS LITTLE CARD IS THE INVITATION THAT'S READY PRINTED TO GO.

IF THE BOARD APPROVES OR IF THERE ARE ANY CHANGES, WE WILL MAKE THOSE AND MS. GRIFFIN JUST LIKE, YOU SAID, WE DO HAVE THESE SCHEDULED TO GO OUT ON THE 16TH.

THAT'S WHAT WE WOULD LIKE BECAUSE THAT GIVES A MONTH OUT FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE THE INVITATION AND TO PLAN ACCORDINGLY.

SO WE ASK THAT YOU REVIEW THAT IF THERE ARE ANY CHANGES THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE MADE, THAT WE CAN DO THOSE QUICKLY AND HAVE THOSE PRINTED AND SENT OUT.

CAN WE BOARD MEMBERS? CAN YOU OPEN UP YOUR INVITATION.

WHEN YOU OPEN IT I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT THAT, OF COURSE, WE WANTED TO PAY.

WE HAVE LITTLE DROPLETS ON THE FRONT TO SYMBOLIZE THE NATATORIUM AND TO SYMBOLIZE THAT BEING, YOU KNOW, WATER IN THE POOL.

SO WE LIKE THAT LITTLE DETAIL.

WHEN YOU OPEN IT, IT DOES HAVE THE DATE 10-16-21.

AND THEN AS YOU OPEN IT, WE HAVE THE INSERT THAT YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO THE GARLAND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT NATATORIUM GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION, WHICH INCLUDES SPECIAL TOURS AND A RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER THE 16TH.

AND WE ARE ASKING FOR RSVP.

AND THEN YOU CAN GO ON TO SEE THE FORMAL INVITATION WITH THE DATE AND FURTHER INFORMATION.

AND SO WE HAVE THE BUILDING THERE IN THE WATERMARK, AS WELL AS THE OFFICIAL LOGO OF THE NATATORIUM.

AND THEN ON THE BACK, YOU CAN SEE THAT IMPRINT AS WELL.

OK.

QUESTIONS.

AND I WILL.

WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO IS WE WANT TO GIVE THEM THEIR DIRECTION NOW BECAUSE THEY'RE WORKING ON THEIR SCHEDULE AND WE DON'T WANT TO HOLD IT UP.

MS. STANLEY.

CAN YOU JUST GIVE ME AN IDEA OF WHERE THE RIBBON CUTTING AND THIS CEREMONY IS GOING TO BE? WELL, THAT'S WHAT WE NEEDED TO GET FEEDBACK TODAY FROM THE BOARD AND SO WE WILL ADJUST ACCORDINGLY.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHETHER OR NOT IT WOULD BE INSIDE OUTSIDE KIND OF WHAT THAT WOULD LOOK LIKE.

SO IF IT'S THE PLEASURE OF THE BOARD FROM WHAT I HEAR TODAY THAT WILL BE INSIDE, THEN WE'LL HAVE TO ADJUST BECAUSE WE WERE THINKING ORIGINALLY HAVING EVERYTHING OUTSIDE UNDER TENTS AND THEN HAVING THE TOURS INSIDE.

THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TO VISUALIZE.

OK, MR. WIGGINS, WOULD YOU COME BACK AND EXPLAIN WHAT THE OTHER BOARD MEMBERS HAVE TALKED ABOUT OF THAT TWELVE HUNDRED CAPACITY THAT WE HAVE? IF YOU WOULD JUST VISUALIZE THAT FOR US TO EXPLAIN WHERE THAT IS.

SO THE SPECTATOR SEATING, SO UPSTAIRS IS ELEVATED SEATING FOR TWELVE HUNDRED THAT OVERSEES THE POOLS AND THE POOL DECK.

THERE'S A STANDING ROOM ABOVE THAT AS WELL, BUT IT'S ALL INCORPORATED INTO ABOUT TWELVE HUNDRED UP TOP, YES MA'AM.

BUT IT'S UPSTAIRS, SO IT'S NOT ON THE LOWER LEVEL.

I GET THAT.

BUT I'M TRYING TO VISUALIZE IN MY HEAD HOW WE'RE GOING TO DO THE RIBBON CUTTING WITH EVERYONE UPSTAIRS.

BUT YOUR DIGNITARIES IN THE POOL, I MEAN.

YEAH.

SO I'M TRYING TO VISUALIZING HOW WE'RE.

YOU CAN'T DO THE RIBBON CUTTING IN THE FOYER IF EVERYONE'S GOING TO BE UPSTAIRS IN THE.

LET ME BRING SOME CLARITY HERE.

RIBBON CUTTINGS ARE SOMETHING THAT CHAMBERS USUALLY DO.

WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO A RIBBON CUTTING.

WE'RE JUST GOING TO DO THE GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION.

THAT WAS WHAT WE HAD TALKED ABOUT INITIALLY.

NO, I GET IT.

BUT THEN WE JUST WANT TO REMOVE AND RIBBON CUTTING SO.

OR UNLESS MS. LIGHTFOOT, YOU'RE GOING TO SAY YOU'RE GOING TO DO A RIBBON CUTTING AND YOU'RE NOT HOLD ON.

I WAS ENVISIONING A RIBBON IN THE WATER AND JOHNNY WOULD JUMP IN WITH SOME BIG SCISSORS AND SWIM OUT THERE AND CUT IT.

I LOVE THAT IDEA.

[LAUGHTER] I'M JUST I'M TRYING TO VISUALIZE AND I'M ALSO TRYING TO VISUALIZE IF PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE IN HEELS ON YOUR MATS AROUND THE POOL BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO.

IF THEY'RE GOING TO BE UP IN THE SEATING RIGHT, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE YOUR CEREMONIES ON THE GROUND, BY THE POOL, ON YOUR.

AND TO ME, THAT'S GUYS.

THAT'S WHY I'M SAYING OUTDOORS, BECAUSE IT DOESN'T TO ME WORK TO HAVE THOSE CEREMONIES WITH THE POOL AND THE SEATING UP THERE.

YOU TALKING ABOUT SIGHTLINE, JUST FOR SIGHTLINES.

I WAS TALKING ABOUT YOUR DIGNITARIES, TRY AND MANEUVER AROUND THE POOL WHILE YOU'RE TRYING TO GET THE.

BUT WE COULD PUT A BYLINE ON HERE OF ATTIRE FLAT SHOES.

YEAH, NO.

[01:20:01]

I MEAN, WE CAN MAKE IT WORK, BUT YOU HAVE TO LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE NAVIGATING AROUND THAT POOL BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO REQUIRE A DIFFERENT SHOE WEAR AND IT'S VERY VALID MR. MILLER, BECAUSE I'M NOT DOWNING DR. LOPEZ.

IN NOVEMBER OF 2017, WE HAD A GRAND OPENING OF THE GRCTC AND I PROFOUNDLY REMEMBER THAT BECAUSE ONE THAT WAS THE DAY I GOT VOTED IN.

IT SURE WAS.

AND TWO, IT WAS THE DAY THAT YOU GUYS HOSTED THE FIRST EVENT, MUCH LIKE THIS OVER THERE AND THE CEREMONY WAS OUTDOORS.

WHAT YOU DID WAS ALLOW PEOPLE TO MINGLE INSIDE, BUT THE CEREMONY WAS OUTSIDE UNDER THAT PAVILION AREA WHERE THAT FACES NAAMAN FOREST.

AND SO WE COULD DO SOMETHING SIMILAR WHERE WE ALLOW PEOPLE TO CONGREGATE AND GO AND THEN WE WE BRING THEM OUTSIDE FOR THE CEREMONY.

BUT NOT EVERYBODY HAS TO BE OUTSIDE BECAUSE IF WE REMEMBER THERE WAS SO MANY PEOPLE THERE, THE MAJORITY WERE INSIDE WHEN THE CEREMONY WAS OUTSIDE, THERE WAS JUST SO MANY PEOPLE THERE.

SO WE COULD.

YOU CAN HAVE THAT OPTION.

MY RECOMMENDATION WOULD BE OUTDOOR TENTS WITH PEOPLE COMING IN BECAUSE THE THE MAJORITY OF THE SQUARE FOOTAGE, LET'S LOOK AT THAT.

THE MAJORITY OF THE SQUARE FOOTAGE IS POOL.

IT'S POOL SPACE AND THEN THAT WILL ALLOW PEOPLE TO COME IN.

I DO AGREE THAT MAYBE, IF WE COULD PUT ON THE CARD DRESS, HAWAIIAN, NO I'M JUST KIDDING.

[LAUGHTER].

YOU KNOW, BUT DRESS, WE'RE COMFORTABLE SHOES, YOU KNOW? AND YEAH, I MEAN, IT'S A SWIMMING POOL.

WHY NOT? RIGHT? BUT NO SWIMSUITS.

NO SWIMSUITS.

OK, LET'S MAKE IT.

LET'S BE CLEAR.

SO THAT WOULD BE OUR RECOMMENDATION.

WE HAVE IT OUTSIDE.

WHEN WE DO THE CEREMONY, WE LET PEOPLE KNOW AND THEN WE DO IT OUTSIDE AND THEN WE COME INSIDE.

QUESTION.

OK, SEE, I KIND OF KNOW YOU ALL A LITTLE BIT.

[LAUGHTER] SO MR. BEACH THE IN OR OUT SITUATION I'M OK WITH EITHER WAY, BUT WHAT I'M CONCERNED ABOUT OR REALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE, AND I'M VERY PROUD OF THIS NATATORIUM THAT IT'S BUILT AND IT'S A MARQUEE SPOT IN GARLAND, TEXAS, AND WE NEED TO SHOWCASE IT THE BEST THAT WE CAN.

AND I'M WANTING AND WHEN I SEE THE REMARKS IN CELEBRATION, I'M WANTING TO REACH OUT TO PEOPLE FROM THE UIL I'M WANTING TO REACH.

YOU'RE VERY TALENTED MS. LIGHTFOOT BECAUSE I REMEMBER WHEN YOU DID THE COACHES SAYING AT THE, WHEN YOU WERE TALKING TO THE FOOTBALL COACH AT TECH UNIVERSITY AND BAYLOR UNIVERSITY.

I WANT TO REACH OUT OUTSIDE PEOPLE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS TO COME TO THIS.

BECAUSE IF WE SHOW IT TO THEM, GUESS WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, THEY'RE GOING TO COME USE IT OR THEY'RE GOING TO PROMOTE IT TO OTHER PEOPLE IN REGION 10.

SO I THINK THAT WE ARE BEING SMALL MINDED IN WHAT WE'RE.

SO IF THAT BE THE CASE AND WE DID GO AFTER THOSE PEOPLE AND WE DID PROMOTE THAT OUT THERE LIKE THAT, I THINK THAT WE WOULD BE I THINK WE OUGHT TO INVITE THE GOVERNOR.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT COULD HAPPEN.

WHAT COULD HAPPEN IS THERE'D BE SO MANY PEOPLE HERE THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO BE OUTSIDE AND THEN LET THEM GO IN AND WALK AROUND AND WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE, BUT LISTEN, WE AS A BOARD, WE NEED TO BE EXTREMELY AND I THINK EVERYBODY IS VERY PROUD OF WHAT WE HAVE AND WHERE IT'S GOING TO GO.

BUT LET'S SHOWCASE IT.

THIS IS OUR OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY SHOW IT OFF AND SHOW COACH WIGGINS HOW GOOD A COACH THAT HE IS OUT THERE AT THE NATATORIUM.

SO LET'S REALLY LET'S PROMOTE IT.

LET'S GO OUTSIDE THE CITY WALLS, SO TO SPEAK, FOR PEOPLE TO COME TO THIS COMMUNITY AND LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE.

IT MAY BRING PEOPLE TO MOVE HERE.

WHO KNOWS? YOU NEVER KNOW, BUT I THINK THAT WE'RE DON'T BLINDSIDE OURSELVES.

OK, JUST A COMMENT.

OK.

THANK YOU.

SO THAT WILL GO TO WHEN WE START DISCUSSING THE ATTENDANCE LIST THAT WE HAVE THAT WE CAN ADD TO.

BUT NOW WE'RE BACK TO WHERE IS THE ONE HOUR CELEBRATION OR FORTY FIVE MINUTES CELEBRATION? WHERE WILL THAT HAPPEN? DR. LOPEZ HAS SAID OUTSIDE WE SAID INSIDE, BUT I THINK THE WHOLE OBJECTIVE OF THE GRAND OPENING IS THAT WE WILL HAVE AS MANY STUDENTS THAT FROM THE SWIM TEAMS TO DO AS MANY TOURS FOR AS LONG AND THE SEATING COULD BE THE HOLDING AREA.

I DON'T KNOW.

SO LET'S KIND OF STEP BACK, BUT THEN LET'S MOVE FORWARD.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO AGREE TO DO? ONE, I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LOOK AT HOW FAST ARE THEY GOING TO BE ABLE IN OTHER WORDS, IF THEY'RE GOING TO SEE THE RESPONSES FROM THE RSVPS, HOW FAST THEY'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO JUMP AND CHANGE DIRECTION.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF THE RSVS ARE NOT COMING IN THAT PEOPLE SAY THEY'RE NOT COMING, THEN WHY DO WE NEED TO HAVE IT OUTSIDE? BUT IF WE GET A TON OF PEOPLE SAYING THEY'RE COMING, THEN WE PROBABLY DO

[01:25:05]

NEED TO BE OUTSIDE AND BRINGING THEM IN.

YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M SAYING.

YES SIR.

SO BASED ON WHAT YOU ARE SAYING.

IT DEPENDS ON HOW FAST TOO, Y'ALL CAN HAVE A TENT THROWN UP OUT THERE AND GET IT ALL SET UP LIKE YOU WANT IT ORGANIZED.

I MEAN, OVERNIGHT OR WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE, IT'S GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF WORK, LIKE SITTING UP A GOLF TOURNAMENT.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE READY TO JUMP AT A DIFFERENT, YOU KNOW, GO A DIFFERENT WAY ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

BUT THAT'S WHAT I FORESEE.

SO ON THE INVITATION, THERE ARE TWO AREAS OF CONCERN.

ONE IS, ARE WE GOING TO HAVE THE RIBBON CUTTING? AND YOU ALL MAY NOT HAVE TO ANSWER THAT ALL TODAY, BUT WE CAN GIVE OUR INPUT.

AND THEN THE OTHER, THE RSVP OCTOBER 14TH MAY BE TOO LATE FOR PLANNING AND PREPARATION FOR.

OH, WAIT, LET ME GET MR. I WILL SAY THAT WE WILL PROCEED WITH THE RIBBON CUTTING THE CEREMONY AND THE PICTURES.

IT'S NOSTALGIC, SO WE WILL DO THAT.

ALL RIGHT, MR. JOHNSON, I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE MY PREFERENCE TO THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE SUPERINTENDENT.

I'M FINE WITH THAT.

OK.

SO ARE WE GOING TO BASED ON WE'VE ALL HAD OUR COMMENTS.

DID YOU HAVE YOUR HAND UP? OK.

WE ALL HAD OUR INPUT.

THE SUPERINTENDENT HAS HEARD IT.

THE TEAM HAS HEARD IT.

ARE WE GOING TO SAY NOW FOR THEM TO PROCEED AND BRING BACK TO US WHAT THEIR BEST PROPOSED SOLUTION FOR THIS OR ARE WE GOING TO SAY, LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND LEAVE THE TOURS FOR THE INSIDE? I SAY WE, TELL THEM THEY'VE HEARD OUR INPUT AND GO, DO IT.

I DON'T THINK THEY NEED TO BRING ANYTHING BACK TO US.

OKAY.

SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE RIBBON CUTTING.

Y'ALL CAN WORK ON THE DYNAMICS AND THE DETAILS OF THAT.

YOU ALL FEEL LIKE THE 14TH RSVP IS ENOUGH TIME FOR YOU TO GET US READY FOR THE MORNING OF THE 16TH.

MS. STANLEY.

I REALLY LIKE MR. BEACH'S SUGGESTION I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ADDED TO THIS.

LET'S HOLD THAT JUST A SECOND.

PLEASE SEND IT TO US THROUGH EMAIL.

SO THEN THAT WAY.

IT, AND THEN EVERYBODY COULD LOOK THROUGH IT.

RIGHT.

THAT'S WHAT I WAS GETTING READY TO SAY.

WE'VE HAD SEVERAL DEALS, SO BOARD MEMBERS SEND IT TO THEM BY YOU ALL WANT TO SEND THIS OUT ON.

THE INTENDED GOAL WAS TO HAVE THE INVITATIONS SENT OUT ON SEPTEMBER THE 16TH.

THAT WAY, IT GIVES A MONTH OUT, WHICH IS PROPER PROTOCOL FOR INVITATIONS.

SO TODAY, TRUSTEES, IT IS ACTUALLY THE 14TH.

SO IF YOU HAVE NAMES THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET THAT TO THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO THEY CAN GET IT.

MS. GRIFFIN I WAS JUST CURIOUS.

MS. LIGHTFOOT HOW IS THE COMMUNITY GOING TO ALSO BE NOTIFIED ABOUT THE EVENT? I'M ASSUMING THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE.

IS IT AN OPEN EVENT? IT'S AN OPEN EVENT SO.

SO IT'S NOT AN OPEN EVENT.

NO I'M ASKING, IS IT? IT'S NOT AN OPEN EVENT.

IT'S NOT.

IT'S INVITATION ONLY.

OK.

OK, SO WE'VE DONE THE GUEST LIST.

YOU ALL ARE GOING TO SEND YOUR OTHER PEOPLE THAT YOU'D LIKE TO SEE ADDED TO THE LIST.

HOW MANY PEOPLE ON THIS LIST? DO Y'ALL KNOW.

NO MA'AM.

I DON'T KNOW THAT OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD.

OK.

ALL RIGHT.

SO YOU ALL ARE GOING TO ADD OTHER PEOPLE AND SEND THAT TO MS. LIGHTFOOT.

IS THAT WHERE IT'S GOING TO GO? YES, PLEASE.

DR. LOPEZ.

OK.

ALL RIGHT.

AND SO YOU LIKE THE INVITATION? DO WE CAN MOVE THAT DATE UP, SO THAT WAY, IT GIVES US MORE TIME TO PLAN, THAT'S NOT A PROBLEM.

MAYBE THE 12TH OR SOMETHING.

YES, MA'AM.

OK.

AND NOW TRUSTEES, HAVE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT THE TENTATIVE PROGRAM? ANY THINGS YOU WANT REMOVED ANYTHING YOU WANT LEFT ON? THANK YOU.

IT'S ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE PEOPLE ON THE INVITE LIST.

ALREADY.

OK, THANK YOU.

MS. GRIFFIN THE REMARKS SECTION.

THE BOND COMMITTEE CHAIR IS THAT THE PREVIOUS BOND COMMITTEE.

YES, THAT WAS THE 2014, AND IT WAS TWO CHAIRS.

THE 2014 BOND COMMITTEE CHAIRS.

IT WAS A CHAIR AND A CO-CHAIR.

SO.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU ALL NEED FROM US? THAT'S IT.

TRUSTEES, WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED FROM STAFF? SO IT'S A GO AND EVERYBODY'S GOOD.

[01:30:01]

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

OK.

[IV. C. Action Items]

MR. YEAGER IS GOING TO DISCUSS THE CONSIDER APPROVAL OF THE NEW LOCATION OF PRIVATE CELLULAR TOWER AT MEMORIAL PATHWAY ACADEMY.

YEAH, GOOD EVENING MS. GRIFFIN BOARD OF TRUSTEES, DR.

LOPEZ.

NOW THAT I'VE ACTUALLY HAD A CHANCE TO MEET WITH THE CITY OF GARLAND AND HASH OUT ALL POSSIBLE PERMITTING REQUIREMENTS AND OTHER FUN STUFF THAT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH WHEN WE PUT UP FACILITIES AND TOWERS AND OTHER THINGS, THE END RESULT CAME WITH WE MUST AT LEAST HAVE THE TOWER ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY FEET AWAY FROM PRIVATE PROPERTY.

AND SO WE HAVE TO THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT OUR PROPERTY, THEY JUST CARE ABOUT THE PRIVATE PROPERTY AROUND THE FACILITY.

AND SO GOING FORWARD, THAT'S THE MINIMUM, THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENT WE HAVE TO MEET.

AND SO MPA, THE ORIGINAL LOCATION WE CAME TO YOU ALL FOR APPROVAL DID NOT MEET THAT REQUIREMENT.

AND SO WE HAVE TO MOVE IT BACK TOWARDS THE FACILITY IN THE NEW DOT THERE, THE YELLOW DOT ON THE THING.

IT'S GOING TO BE 80 FEET AWAY FROM MPA AND 150 FEET AWAY FROM CISNEROS BK BUILDING.

BUT THAT IS THE MINIMUM ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY FEET AWAY FROM THAT CHURCH, WHICH IS ON THE SOUTH SIDE THERE FROM A PRIVATE PROPERTY.

AND SO WE'RE GOING IN FRONT OF THE BOARD FOR RECOMMENDATION OF APPROVAL FOR THAT POLE SITE.

QUESTIONS TRUSTEES.

WE ARE INTO ITEMS THAT WE WILL MOVE TO OUR AGENDA ITEM AT OUR REGULAR BOARD MEETING.

ANY QUESTIONS? MS. STANLEY.

MS. GRIFFIN I'M JUST TRYING TO RECALL THE CONVERSATION.

WAIT A SECOND.

I'M SORRY.

I'M JUST TRYING TO RECALL THE CONVERSATION THAT THE BOARD HAD PREVIOUSLY ABOUT THE PLACEMENT OF THIS.

IT SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS A LOT OF CONVERSATION AND BROUGHT ON.

I CAN'T REMEMBER IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WES THAT BROUGHT UP THE LOCATION.

AND AT THAT POINT WE WERE TRYING TO DISTANCE IT FROM OUR BUILDINGS AS WELL.

I'M THINKING ABOUT JACKSON PRIMARILY.

SO WHAT YOU'RE RECOMMENDING IS KIND OF AN ACCOMMODATION OF THE BOARD'S WISHES AND THE LIMITATIONS THAT YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH WITHIN THE CITY REQUIREMENTS.

CORRECT THE PREVIOUS CONVERSATION.

AND I DON'T KNOW MR. JOHNSON MAY WANT TO WEIGH IN AGAIN, BUT THE PREVIOUS CONVERSATION WAS THAT THE GOAL WAS TO MOVE IT AWAY FROM THE BUILDING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE RF SIGNAL.

AND WE CAME UP WITH THE STUDY ABOUT THE RF FREQUENCY WITHIN THE TOWERS ITSELF AND CAME ACROSS THAT THERE'S REALLY NO EFFECT IN GENERAL, BUT WE WERE TRYING TO DO OUR BEST OUR DUE DILIGENCE TO MOVE IT AS FAR AWAY FROM OUR SCHOOL BUILDINGS AS POSSIBLE WITH ALSO I SAID WE HAD TO WORK WITH THE COMMUNITY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE ALSO MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PERMIT AND THE COMMUNITY AS WELL.

SO THIS IS KIND OF THAT RIGHT AND THE HAPPY MEDIUM WHERE WE CAN WORK ON BOTH THE DISTRICT AND THE COMMUNITY, MAKING SURE THAT WE'RE WORKING TOGETHER ON THAT.

GOING FORWARD AS YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE OUR PROPERTY DOESN'T HAVE BIG OPEN SPACES EVERYWHERE.

SO WE'RE GOING HAVE TO LOOK AT HOW WE GO FORWARD ON THAT.

BUT THE MINIMUM FOR PERMITTING PURPOSES TO ACHIEVE A PERMIT GOING FORWARD WITH ANY NEW SITE, WE HAVE TO MAINTAIN THE 150 FOOT DISTANCE FROM PRIVATE PROPERTY.

SO BEAR WITH ME, IT'S PROBABLY ALREADY BEEN ASKED, BUT HAVE WE HAD COMMUNITY INPUT ON TOWERS NEAR OUR BUILDINGS? WE'VE HAD MULTIPLE BOARD PRESENTATIONS.

WE HAVEN'T HAD DIRECT COMMUNITY INPUT.

BUT I MEAN, LIKE SO WHEN WE SAY COMMUNITY INPUT OF KEEPING AS FAR AWAY FROM OUR BUILDINGS, WE HAVEN'T TOLD MOM AND DAD THAT WE'RE PLACING THE CELL PHONE TOWERS NEAR THE SCHOOLS OR NO.

WE HAVE WITH THE PILOT PROGRAMS, THEY'RE COMMUNICATING THAT TO THEIR STAFF IN THE COMMUNITY.

THE SCHOOLS, I THINK, ARE YOU SAYING THE SCHOOLS HAVE DONE THAT? I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS IS THAT THE PLACEMENT OF THE TOWERS HAD TO DO WITH THE CONCENTRATION OF THE AREAS IN THE CITIES OF WHERE THERE WAS A CONNECTIVITY DESERT.

SO THAT WAS ONE THING THAT WAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE LOCATIONS OF THE TOWER AND HOW YOU ALL COMMUNICATE I THINK THE QUESTION IS, HOW DID YOU COMMUNICATE THAT TO THE SCHOOLS.

THE SCHOOLS KNEW, BUT HOW DID THEY COMMUNICATE THAT TO THE PARENTS? YES.

SO OUR PARENTS, WILL I GET AN EMAIL FROM A PARENT SAYING, WHY ARE YOU PUTTING A CELL TOWER NEXT TO JOHNNY'S SCHOOL? AND THEY'RE GOING TO GET THEIR BRAIN WAVES FRIED, EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW THEY'RE NOT RIGHT?

[01:35:02]

I MEAN, WE'VE DONE THE STUDIES AND WE SAY THAT THERE'S NO BUT HOW HAVE WE EDUCATED THE COMMUNITY WHEN THEY SEE THIS CELL TOWER COME UP SO CLOSE TO THE BUILDINGS? WE HAVEN'T HAD DIRECT COMMUNITY FORUMS OR INPUT.

DO WE THINK THAT, THAT WOULDN'T BE A WISE THING, PERHAPS? I MEAN, I'M JUST ASKING.

I THINK AS ALWAYS WE DID WHEN WE FIRST STARTED THESE DISCUSSIONS, WE HAD A LOT OF COMMUNITY COME AND ADDRESS THE BOARD AND WE DID BACK OFF OF I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT WAS A COUPLE OF MONTHS OR WHATEVER BECAUSE WE ACTUALLY WENT AND EXPLORED AND RESEARCHED WHAT THE ISSUES WERE THAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT.

BUT AGAIN, MANY THINGS THAT WE ARE DOING, IT IS BASICALLY IN THE AGENDA AND WE DID HAVE PEOPLE ADDRESS US AND WE DID BACK OFF RESEARCH AND THEN DECIDED THAT THESE WERE THE CONNECTIVITY DESERTS AND THESE WERE THE STUDENTS THAT NEEDED THE MOST CONNECTIVITY.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE TOWERS ARE DOING.

I GUESS THE OTHER BOARD MEMBERS CAN HELP ME OUT WITH.

YEAH, WE DID THAT.

I THINK THE THING THAT MS. STANLEY IS TALKING ABOUT AFTER WE DID THE RESEARCH TO FIND OUT WHERE WE WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO PLACE THOSE THINGS, I DON'T KNOW IF WE ACTUALLY WENT BACK OUT AND MADE A STATEMENT OR COMMUNICATED WITH THE COMMUNITY THAT WE'VE DONE THE WORK.

THIS IS WHAT WE'VE COME UP WITH.

AND THEN THIS IS WHY IT SHOULD BE OK FOR THOSE CELL TOWERS TO GO IN THOSE LOCATIONS.

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE ASKING? I THINK WE DID THAT.

DID WE? YEAH, I MEAN, MR. YEAGER CAME BACK AND GAVE THE RESULTS IN AN OPEN PUBLIC FORUM.

PEOPLE COULD COME MAKE COMMENTS.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE DID.

WE HEARD CONCERNS FROM THE COMMUNITY.

WE ACTED ON CONCERNS OF THE COMMUNITY.

I WAS THE ONE WHO MADE THE MOTION THAT WE TABLE IT WHILE WE GET THE RESEARCH.

WE GOT THE RESEARCH BACK.

HE REPORTED IT TO ALL OF US.

IT'S A PUBLIC FORUM.

I MEAN, WE CAN'T HAVE EIGHT DIFFERENT COMMUNITY FORUMS FOR EVERY SINGLE AGENDA ITEM THAT WE HAVE, AND WE GOT TO AT SOME POINT MOVE FORWARD ON SOME OF THESE THINGS.

NO.

I DON'T THINK THAT'S WHAT SHE'S ASKING THOUGH.

AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT, BUT YOU WANTED TO PUT THE CELL TOWER A CERTAIN DISTANCE AWAY FROM THE BUILDINGS, AND WE CAN'T DO THAT BECAUSE WE HAVE TO MAINTAIN THAT 150 FROM THE PRIVATE.

SO UP UNTIL THIS POINT, WE THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO BE SIGNIFICANTLY AWAY FROM OUR BUILDINGS.

IS THAT A TRUE STATEMENT? NO.

I MEAN, SOME CASES, MAYBE 90 FEET, SOME CASES 60.

I MEAN, WE DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH SPACE ON OUR PROPERTY.

YEAH, THE ORIGINAL LOCATION AT JACKSON WAS RIGHT NEXT TO THE SCHOOL BUILDING AND IT WAS DISCUSSED.

WHAT ABOUT MOVING IT A LITTLE FURTHER AWAY? AND SO WE WERE JUST LOOKING AT THAT BEST CASE SCENARIO THAT WE CAN AND TRYING TO ACCOMMODATE.

BUT THE RESULTS OF THIS INDEPENDENT STUDY THAT WE DID HAVE NO EFFECT ON OUR STUDENTS AND WITH RF SIGNAL, IT'S THREE HUNDRED TIMES LESS.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THAT'S STILL THE STRATEGY THE BEST WE CAN.

IT'S JUST NOW WE ALSO HAVE ANOTHER PARAMETER OF THIS 150 FOOT RULE THAT THE CITY HAS PUT FORWARD.

DR.

LOPEZ.

I THINK THAT BECAUSE OF THE LEVELS ARE SO SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER THAN THE STANDARD THAT WE UNDERSTAND THAT IT MIGHT SEEM DIFFERENT, BUT SOME OF THESE CELL PHONE TOWERS BECAUSE THEY ARE RANDOMLY PUT BECAUSE OF STRATEGY THEY'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF NEIGHBORHOODS, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE AND OUR SIGNAL STRENGTH FOR WHAT WE'RE DOING ISN'T GOING TO BE AT EVEN THEIR LEVEL.

AND SO WE'RE DOING IT MORE JUST FOR AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION.

IT WASN'T LIKE A NECESSARY TYPE OF THING.

WE'VE HAD OPEN FORUMS. WE'VE HAD DISCUSSIONS ON IT.

AND THE FIRST ONE WENT UP IN JACKSON, WHICH IS OUR BIGGEST MIDDLE SCHOOL AND THE SECOND ONE THAT'S GOING TO BE GOING UP IN MEMORIAL PATHWAY.

AND SO WE FEEL THESE ARE VERY SAFE AND THAT AS WE PROCEED AND WE USE THESE TO SEE IF THEY'RE EFFECTIVE OR NOT TO BUILD OUT.

BUT IF THERE WAS ANY CONCERNS, WE WOULDN'T EVEN BE MOVING FORWARD WITH IT.

YEAH.

YEAH.

AND ANY FUTURE, JUST SO ANY FUTURE SITE IT'D HAVE TO, WILL BE ON A BOARD AGENDA FOR APPROVAL BECAUSE THE BOARD HAS TO APPROVE THE PHYSICAL LOCATION FOR A TOWER GOING FORWARD, SO EVERY SINGLE NEW LOCATION WILL BE A BOARD ACTION ITEM GOING FORWARD.

SO THEY'LL HAVE PUBLIC COMMENT IN THE PUBLIC VIEW.

MR. MILLER, DID YOU HAVE YOUR HAND UP? OH, OK.

AND BY THE WAY, JACKSON MIDDLE SCHOOL, THE TOWER IS UP NOW.

[01:40:01]

I THINK YOU GOT SOME PICTURES FROM ON SUNDAY, AND AFTER THE FALL BREAK, STUDENTS SELECT STUDENTS FOR THE PILOT WILL BE GETTING ACCESS.

SO.

OK.

ALL RIGHT.

JUST MOVING FORWARD, I THINK THAT THERE MAY BE SOME OTHER STEPS, OTHER INFORMATION NOW THAT WE'VE HAD THE GUIDELINES ISSUED BY THE CITY.

ALL RIGHTY.

THANK YOU.

OUR NEXT ITEM, MR. FERNANDEZ, IS TO CONSIDER APPROVAL OF THE DIGITAL MARQUEE MONUMENT STANDARD.

WE ASKED FOR THIS BASICALLY A WHILE BACK.

SO IN OUR AGENDA, YOU HAVE DIMENSIONS AND PICTURES WITH ELEMENTARY AND HIGH SCHOOL.

OH, I MISSED ONE.

SORRY.

I TURNED MY PAGE.

YES.

SORRY.

LET'S APPROVE THE BUS LANE REPLACEMENT FOR LAKEVIEW CENTENNIAL.

SAME PERSON.

THANK YOU.

COMMITTEE CHAIR TRUSTEE GRIFFIN.

MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES DR.

LOPEZ.

THIS IS AN ACTION ITEM THAT WILL BE PRESENTED AT THE BOARD MEETING.

THIS IS BROUGHT TO YOU FOR CONSIDERATION WHERE WE ARE AT IN LAKEVIEW CENTENNIAL.

WE HAVE A BUS LANE AT LAKEVIEW CENTENNIAL THAT IS PRETTY WORN OUT AND WE HAVE MADE SOME REPAIRS ON IT THROUGH THE YEARS.

WE'VE GONE IN AND REPAIRED SECTIONS OF IT, AND IT IS AT THE POINT NOW TO WHERE THE BUS LANE ITSELF CONTINUES TO DEGRADE.

AND SO THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO REPLACE A BUS LANE, AND I'VE GOT A PHOTO HERE OF THAT.

SO THIS IS THE ESTIMATED PROJECT COST, WHICH IS BOTH CONSTRUCTION, DESIGN AND ANY MISCELLANEOUS COSTS.

WE'RE ESTIMATING THIS IS AN ESTIMATED COST TO BUDGET ESTIMATE FOR THE REPAIRS OF THE OF THAT LANE.

THE AREAS THAT WE'RE SPEAKING OF AT LAKEVIEW ARE BUSES STACK ON THIS PHOTO HERE.

IF YOU SEE THIS, DRAWING TO THE RIGHT IS WHERE A BUS STACKING GOES RIGHT NEXT TO THE CAMPUS.

WE STACK THREE LANES DEEP AND THEN THEY FUNNEL TO THE NORTHERN PORTION AND THEY MAKE A LEFT ON THE CONCRETE PAVEMENT THAT'S DESIGNATED AS CONCRETE PAVEMENT.

THAT CONCRETE PAVEMENT IS BROKEN IN SEVERAL SECTIONS, AND SO AGAIN, WE'VE MADE REPAIRS TO THAT.

BUT WE'RE LOOKING AT COMPLETELY REPAIRING THAT AND AND GOING BACK WITH MUCH STRONGER CONCRETE THAN IS OUT THERE IN MUCH THICKER CONCRETE.

QUESTIONS.

TRUSTEE.

WHERE WILL YOU ALL PLACE IT, ONCE YOU PUT IT UNDER CONSTRUCTION, THE BUSSES.

SO THIS THIS PHOTO HERE SHOWS THIS ARROW.

I'VE SPOKEN WITH THE CAMPUS AND WITH THE FINE ARTS DEPARTMENT WE HAVE THE BUS LINE ITSELF IS TO THE NORTH OF THIS RED ARROW.

AND SO WHILE THE WHILE THE BUS LANE IS BEING CONSTRUCTED, WE WERE GOING TO HAVE TEMPORARY ROUTING OF THE BUSSES SO THE BUSSES WOULD STILL CONTINUE TO STACK IN THEIR CURRENT LOCATION.

WE WOULD THEN TAKE THOSE PARKING SPACES THAT ARE IN BETWEEN THERE.

WE WOULD DESIGNATE THOSE AS NON PARKING SPACES AND WE WOULD USE THAT AS A TEMPORARY BUS LANE.

OK, THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? ALL RIGHTY, THANK YOU.

MOVING ON TO CONSIDER APPROVAL OF THE DIGITAL MARQUEE MONUMENT STANDARD, WE HAD ASKED FOR THIS AND THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE IN OUR AGENDA.

SO THIS IS AN ACTION ITEM TO TALK ABOUT DIGITAL MARQUEE, AS YOU KNOW, THE MARQUEES, WHEN WE TALK ABOUT WHICH ARE ABOUT SIGNAGE AND WE TALK ABOUT CAMPUSES, HOW WE DISPLAY, HOW WE COMMUNICATE TO OUR PUBLIC EVENTS THAT ARE TAKING PLACE AT OUR CAMPUSES, WE HAVE WE HAVE VARIOUS NUMBER OF TYPES OF WHETHER THEY'RE CALLED DIGITAL MARQUEES OR WHETHER THEY'RE CALLED SIGN POST AND PANEL SIGNS OR THE VARIOUS NAMES FOR THEM.

THESE ARE WHAT WE'VE TRIED TO DO IS TO COME UP WITH A STANDARD FOR US AS A DISTRICT TO SAY AS WE MOVE FORWARD, WHAT ARE WE LOOKING AT FOR MARQUEES? WE HAVE SOME FEEDBACK FROM THE JURISDICTIONS, THE THREE JURISDICTIONS THAT WE RESIDE IN.

THEY HAVE MOVED FORWARD WITH MONUMENT STYLE MARQUEES MOVING AWAY FROM THE POLE MOUNTED.

SO WHAT I'VE DONE HERE IS GIVING YOU THESE ARE NOT ALL OF OUR MARQUEES.

THESE ARE JUST A SAMPLE OF SOME OF THE MARQUEES THAT WE HAVE AT BOTH HIGH SCHOOLS, MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

YOU SEE, GARLAND HIGH SCHOOL HAS ONE VERSION OF IT.

SACHSE HAS A DIFFERENT VERSION.

SOUTH GARLAND HAS HAS A DIFFERENT VERSION.

AND SO WE'VE GOT SOME ARE DIGITAL.

SOME ARE NOT.

OUR MIDDLE SCHOOLS, SOME ARE DIGITAL.

[01:45:01]

I CAN SAY THERE'S A FEW THAT ARE DIGITAL.

MOST OF THEM ARE NOT.

SOME OF THEM ARE POLE MOUNTED.

OTHERS ARE MOUNTED ON A POLE.

BUT THEN THE POLE IS WRAPPED WITH SOME MASONRY.

WE HAVE VARIOUS ONES AT ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE A DIGITAL SIGN AT ONE OF OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, WHICH IS ROACH ELEMENTARY.

SO IT'S A THREE COLOR DIGITAL SIGN.

SO YOU CAN SEE WE'VE GOT ALL DIFFERENT TYPES OF SIGNAGE.

AND SO THE GOAL HERE IS TO CREATE SOME, SOME FORM OF STANDARDIZATION FOR OUR DISTRICT AS WE MOVE FORWARD TO CREATE WHAT WE CALL BRANDING.

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT FOR US WHEN WE TALK ABOUT BRANDING OF OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT.

AND SO THESE ARE WHAT YOU SEE.

HERE ARE THE SAME STYLE OF SIGNS, BUT IN DIFFERENT SIZES.

SO YOU'VE GOT THE HIGH SCHOOL SIGN AND IT'S GOT AT THE BOTTOM WHERE IT SAYS HIGH SCHOOL MARQUEE SIGN ELEVATION.

THAT'S THE ACTUAL SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE ENTIRE MARQUEE, INCLUDING THE DIGITAL SIGN.

YOU'LL SEE THE MIDDLE SCHOOL SIGN.

IT'S THE DIMENSIONS REMAIN PROPORTIONATE FOR EACH SIGN.

THEY JUST GET SMALLER FOR BOTH MIDDLE SCHOOL AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

WHAT WE'VE SEEN IS IS KEEPING FORMALITY.

KEEPING UNIFORMITY WITHIN THESE SIGNS IS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

AND SO AGAIN, THIS IS A STANDARD AS TO WHAT WE WOULD USE FOR OUR SIGNAGE GOING FORWARD.

SO, TRUSTEES, YOU ALL HAVE THE INDIVIDUAL MARKUPS FOR ELEMENTARY, HIGH SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL, ELEMENTARY AND NOTICE ON THE MARKUPS, THERE IS AN ESTIMATED COST FOR EACH OF THOSE.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? MR JOHNSON.

ONE REAL QUICK QUESTION.

WE JUST APPROVED A DIGITAL MARQUEE AT SOUTH GARLAND THAT WAS ABOUT THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS MORE THAN THE ESTIMATED COST YOU HAVE FOR A HIGH SCHOOL UNDER THIS STANDARD.

WAS THERE OTHER COSTS AND EXPENSES ASSOCIATED WITH THAT THAT YOU'RE NOT INCLUDING? NO.

SO THE ONE IN SOUTH GARLAND IS A THE ONE IN SOUTH GARLAND WAS BID AS AN INDEPENDENT SIGN ONE SIGN.

BUT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE IS THESE DOLLARS HERE ARE IF WE WERE TO GO OUT AND LOOK AT A BULK PURCHASE, IF YOU WILL, IF WE WERE TO BID MULTIPLE SIGNS AT A TIME INSTEAD OF AN INDEPENDENT, HEY, I JUST NEED TO BUY ONE SIGN THIS YEAR VERSUS I NEED TO BUY FIVE SIGNS THIS YEAR, 10 SIGNS THIS YEAR.

IF IT'S A ONE SIGN PURCHASE.

WHAT WE'RE DISCUSSING ARE STANDARDS, WE'RE NOT DISCUSSING A POLICY OF PURCHASING SIGNS.

RIGHT.

SO WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY THEN THAT THE AMOUNTS THAT BECAUSE I DON'T I KNOW WE KIND OF DISCUSSED THE POSSIBILITY, MAYBE LOOKING INTO PURCHASING ONES FOR THE HIGH SCHOOLS AT SOME POINT, BUT I DON'T THINK ANYBODY HAS EVER DISCUSSED PURCHASING ONE FOR EVERY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND WE HAVE THAT WOULD BE PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE.

BUT WE ARE ALLOWING THE PTAS TO RAISE FUNDS AND GO OUT AND DO THAT.

SO THIS THE AMOUNT THAT WE'RE PUTTING FORWARD TO THEM, THAT'S NOT REALLY REFLECTIVE OF HOW MUCH A PTA WOULD HAVE TO PAY.

IT'S VERY CLOSE.

IT'S VERY MUCH IN THE BALLPARK OF WHAT A SIGN COST TODAY, SIR.

THAT COST THERE YOU'RE SEEING IS NOT ONLY THE SIGN, BUT IT'S THE THE FOUNDATION PIECE THAT GOES TO IT, THE MASONRY WORK THAT GOES AROUND IT.

AND SO WHAT WE'VE TRIED TO DO, WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO HERE IS TO MINIMIZE COSTS TO THE CAMPUSES BY DEVELOPING A STANDARD, WHEREAS WE'RE NOT HAVING TO REDESIGN A NEW SIGN EVERY TIME WE HAVE A SIGN.

FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE CAMPUS A WANTS A SIGN, BUT THEY WANT IT A LITTLE UNIQUE VERSUS CAMPUS B.

THEN THERE IS SOME DESIGN COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THAT.

SO WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS MINIMIZE THE DESIGN COST FOR EACH CAMPUS.

AND I UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF STANDARDIZATION, I'M NOT 100 PERCENT SURE I AGREE WITH IT, ESPECIALLY IF WE'RE EXPECTING THEM TO FOOT THE BILL.

I THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE SOME ARCHITECTURAL INPUT ON THAT IF THEY'RE PAYING FOR IT, BUT THAT'S REALLY NOT NEITHER HERE NOR THERE WITH RESPECT TO WHAT WE'RE SAYING.

MY ORIGINAL QUESTION WAS THE SOUTH GARLAND HIGH SCHOOL SIGN.

I THINK WE APPROVED IT FOR NINETY SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS WAS THE AMOUNT AND WE HAD WE HAD ONE OTHER BID THAT WAS WELL OVER $100000 FOR IT.

THIS IS SUGGESTING A HIGH SCHOOL SIGN COST BETWEEN 60 AND 70 THOUSAND.

SO THAT'S NOT REALLY ALL THAT CLOSE.

I MEAN.

BUT YOU'RE SAYING [INAUDIBLE] FOR THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS THIS NUMBER IS REALLY CLOSE.

WHEN WE LOOK AT THE HIGH SCHOOL COST TOO EVEN THOUGH WE PAY AGAIN, THAT SOUTH GARLAND SIGN THAT WAS PURCHASED, THAT IS AN INDEPENDENT SIGN.

[01:50:01]

IF WE'RE LOOKING AT STANDARDIZING THESE SIGNS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS LOOKING AT STANDARDIZING THESE SIGNS FOR MULTIPLE PURCHASES.

IF I WAS TO BUY FIVE SIGNS FOR THE HIGH SCHOOLS, THEN WE COULD SEE THAT NUMBER COMING DOWN TO THIS ROUTE.

MR. FERNANDEZ, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, THE THE INITIATIVE WAS NOT TO GO INTO BULK.

THE INITIATIVE WAS SAYING IF THE PTA WERE GOING TO BUY A SIGN, WHAT WOULD BE THE MINIMUM STANDARD.

SO THEN THAT WAY WE DON'T GET ANYTHING BELOW THAT MINIMUM STANDARD.

THAT WAS THAT'S ALL THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT IN AN AFFORDABLE RATE, OK? IT WASN'T ABOUT, WELL, IF WE HAVE THIS MINIMUM STANDARD AND WE GET A BULK COST, THE DISTRICT DOESN'T HAVE AN INITIATIVE TO BUY THE SIGNS AT THIS POINT.

SO WE NEED A STANDARDIZATION OF WHAT COULD BE PURCHASED INDEPENDENTLY OF THE SCHOOL.

OK, THE SCHOOL, IF WE BOUGHT IT, WE WOULD EITHER MEET OR EXCEED THAT MINIMUM STANDARD.

BUT IF THE SCHOOL BUYS IT, IT'S GOING TO BE AT A AT THAT MINIMUM STANDARD OR HIGHER.

DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? YES, SIR, IT DOES.

OK.

WHAT THEIR CONFUSION IS, IS THIS A MINIMUM STANDARD OR IS THIS THE STANDARD WE'RE RECOMMENDING FOR US TO BUY OUR MINIMUM STANDARD AND A SEPARATE ONE WOULD BE FOR THE PTAS? SO WHAT WE WERE LOOKING AT HERE IS IF WE BUY THIS SIGN, IF THE DISTRICT IS BUYING A SIGN FOR A SCHOOL, IF WE START TO DECIDE, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH OUR MARQUEES? SO THIS IS THE SO LET'S USE THAT AS IF THE DISTRICT WERE TO BUY SIGNS.

YES.

THIS WOULD BE THE DISTRICT MINIMUM STANDARD.

NOW WHAT WOULD BE THE STANDARD ALLOWABLE IF THE PTA BUYS SIGNS? BECAUSE I CANNOT SEE THE PTA GETTING $80,000 FOR A SIGN AT ONE OF THE HIGH SCHOOLS, WHATEVER HIGH SCHOOL IT IS, GARLAND HIGH DOWN THE STREET.

I DON'T THINK THEY WOULD FUNDRAISE OR BE ABLE TO FUNDRAISE EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR A SIGN, BUT LET'S SAY THEY WANTED A DIFFERENT TYPE OF SIGN WHAT WOULD BE THE MINIMUM STANDARD.

SO I THINK WE GOT THIS POINT RIGHT.

THIS IS FOR THE DISTRICT PURCHASE.

NOW WHAT ABOUT IF IT'S A PTA OR A BOOSTER CLUB PURCHASE? WHAT WOULD BE THE MINIMUM STANDARDS THEN? SO WE HAVE NOT LOOKED AT WHAT THE PTA WOULD PURCHASE.

WE WERE LOOKING AT A DISTRICT STANDARD, MEANING THAT IF WE WERE TO BUILD DISTRICT STANDARD SIGNS, HOW WOULD THE MARQUEE LOOK LIKE.

THE PTA THEMSELVES THEY THEY RAISE FUNDS FOR ALL VARIOUS TYPES OF THINGS.

RAISING FUNDS FOR THE MARQUEE IS SOMETHING THEY DO.

WE HAVE NOT LOOKED AT A PTA DISTRICT SIGNAGE, SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE DIFFERENT.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO DO FOR PTA IS THEY WOULD STILL HAVE TO MEET THE JURISDICTION REQUIREMENTS.

SO THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THEY WOULD STILL HAVE TO DO ITS THE.

SO I DON'T KNOW FROM A PTA HOW THEY WOULD IF WE WERE TO CREATE A SEPARATE SIGN STANDARD FOR THE PTA.

I WOULD.

I WOULD PREFER WE DIDN'T DO THAT ONLY BECAUSE WE ARE W E HAVE A DISTRICT STANDARD.

THE MORE IMPORTANT PART IS TO HAVE A DISTRICT STANDARD OF WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT AND WHAT THE DISTRICT IS BUILDING.

IF THE PTA IS DEVELOPING A COST FOR A SIGN, IF THEY WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT, IF THEY WANT A POLE MOUNTED SIGN, IT'S GOING TO HAVE TO STILL BE ON A MONUMENT SOMEHOW.

OK.

JUST A SECOND.

LET'S TAKE A PAUSE.

MR. GLICK.

YES.

AND THEN I HAVE A SUGGESTION.

MR. GLICK.

YES.

THANK YOU.

I THINK WE NEED A STANDARD FOR EACH OF OUR DIFFERENT CLASSIFICATIONS OF SCHOOLS.

AND I THINK IT WOULD BE REALLY HELPFUL IS I THINK THAT WAS OF COURSE MR JOHNSON WAS ON IS TO GET A PRICE WHAT IT WOULD COST FOR AN INDIVIDUAL SIGN AT AN INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL.

SO THERE SHOULD BE A PRICE THAT WE KNOW IF A HIGH SCHOOL WANTS TO PUT THEIR SIGN IN.

IF A MIDDLE SCHOOL WANTS TO PUT THEIR SIGN IN AND IF AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WANTS TO PUT THEIR SIGN IN, NOT BUYING 70 SIGNS OR WHATEVER NUMBER.

THESE NUMBERS WERE CALCULATED.

I THINK THAT WOULD HELP.

AND THEN EVERYBODY WILL KNOW THIS IS A STANDARD YOU BUILD TO WHETHER WE DO IT PTA.

I AND ONE OF THE, I THINK, ROWLETT HIGH SCHOOL.

THE CLASS OF SO-AND-SO DID IT.

SO I THINK THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS TO DO IT, BUT I THINK JUST AN INDIVIDUAL PRICE WOULD BE WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE.

THANK YOU, MS. GRIFFIN.

ARE THERE ANY MORE COMMENTS FROM BOARD MEMBERS? I WOULD SUGGEST THERE'S ON READINESS FOR THIS TO BE AN ACTION ITEM, SO I WOULD ASK FOR A

[01:55:01]

COMMITTEE MEMBER TO SUGGEST THAT WE TABLE THIS AND WE DO NOT MOVE IT FORWARD.

MADAM CHAIR, YES, I MOVE THAT WE TABLED THIS ITEM.

I THANK YOU FOR YOU ALL Y'ALL'S WORK AND I THINK YOU'VE HEARD THE COMMENTS AND THE INPUT, AND WE WILL PUT IT BACK ON WHEN YOU ALL ADVISED ME THAT IT NEEDS TO GO ON THE AGENDA.

ARE THERE ANY DR.

RINGO OR MR. FERNANDEZ OR MR GONZALEZ? ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OF WHAT WE JUST DID? SO YOU ALL HAVE THE OK, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

OK, THANK YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO MOVE TO THE NEXT ITEM, WHICH IS CONSIDERED APPROVAL OF THE PEDESTRIAN UTILITY AND DRAINAGE EASEMENT.

AND WE ARE ON PAGE FIFTY SIX AND WE HAVE AN EASEMENT THERE AND ALL THE PROPER DOCUMENTATION AND DRAWINGS MR. FERNANDEZ.

SO THIS IS AN EASEMENT AND THIS IS A UTILITY AND DRAINAGE EASEMENT THAT WE'VE BEEN CITY OF GARLAND HAS APPROACHED US OF A EASEMENT THAT THEY'RE WANTING TO EXECUTE IN THE THE ROAD OF THE LETS SEE, WATERHOUSE BOULEVARD ROAD.

SO YOU SEE THE PEDESTRIAN, YOU SEE THE EXHIBIT IN FRONT OF YOU HERE.

SO THE CITY OF GARLAND IS ACTUALLY DOING ROAD IMPROVEMENTS AROUND LAKEVIEW CENTENNIAL HIGH SCHOOL, AND THIS IS ONE OF THE EASEMENTS THAT THEY'RE LOOKING AT.

SO IT'S LOOKING AT IMPROVING THE UTILITIES AND DRAINAGE IN THAT AREA.

ANY QUESTIONS? TRUSTEE.

OK, THANK YOU, IF WE'LL MOVE TO THE NEXT ONE IS CONSIDER APPROVAL OF THE PEDESTRIAN AND UTILITY EASEMENT PROJECT EASEMENT PARCEL 20.

SO PARCEL 20 IS A PEDESTRIAN AND UTILITY EASEMENT.

THIS IS A SMALL EASEMENT THAT'S AT THE CORNER OF WATERHOUSE AND ROWAN ROAD.

FOR THE CITY.

IT'S STILL PART OF THE SAME PROJECT FOR THE CITY.

OK, ANY QUESTIONS TRUSTEES? AND JUST REAL QUICK, IS THIS THE BACK PORTION OF THE PROPERTY? YES, SIR.

THIS IS THE VACANT.

THIS IS THE VACANT LAND THAT EXISTS AS PART OF LAKEVIEW CENTENNIAL.

WHAT DOES THAT LAND BUTT UP TO, IS IT HOUSES, APARTMENTS OR JUST ROAD.

BUTTS UP TO HOMES, I BELIEVE.

ON THE BACKSIDE OF IT, OK.

IS THIS THE AREA WE HAD TO CLEAN UP A FEW YEARS AGO THAT WAS WHEN I FIRST GET ON THE BOARD.

WE TOURED A PROPERTY OUT THERE THAT HAD MAYBE SOME HOMELESS PEOPLE LIVING ON IT.

HAVE A DRAWING OF A BUNCH OF PORTABLES BEING PLACED ON THIS PROPERTY.

I DON'T THINK THAT WAS EVER DONE.

THANK YOU.

OK, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? OK, WE'RE ON PAGE SIXTY NINE.

AND CONSIDER APPROVAL OF THE TEMPORARY RIGHT OF ENTRY GRADING.

SO THIS IS A REQUEST THAT THE CITY MADE TO US.

THEY'RE ACTUALLY DOING SOME IMPROVEMENTS ON.

SO THE CITY IS WORKING ON JUPITER ROAD FOR THE FRONT OF THIS FACILITY HERE.

THEY ARE LOOKING AT A TEMPORARY RIGHT OF ENTRY FOR GRADING PURPOSES.

THERE'S AN EXISTING EASEMENT AND EXISTING RIGHT OF WAY EXCUSE ME, THERE'S AN EXISTING RIGHT OF WAY THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE WORKING ON A DECELERATION LANE AND AN ACCELERATION LANE.

AND SO THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME WORK GOING ON AT THAT CORNER.

AND WHAT THEY'VE ASKED FOR IS A TEMPORARY ENTRY SO THAT IT CAN DO SOME GRADING THERE.

ANY QUESTIONS, TRUSTEES? AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO GO TO CONSIDER APPROVAL OF OPTION THE TARRACON SOIL SAMPLING SERVICES AT SAM HOUSTON MIDDLE SCHOOL.

THANK YOU.

SO WE WERE ASKED TO GO AND LOOK AT SOIL SAMPLING AT SAM HOUSTON.

THIS IS IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE EVENTS THAT HAVE TRANSPIRED AT PARK CREST ELEMENTARY.

WE ARE LOOKING AT THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SAMPLING THAT COULD OCCUR.

AS YOU KNOW, WHEN WE TALK ABOUT SOIL SAMPLING, IT IS IT CAN HAPPEN.

YOU CAN GET ALL TYPES OF SAMPLING.

YOU CAN SAMPLE FOR ONE METAL, YOU CAN SAMPLE FOR TWENTY SIX METALS.

YOU CAN SAMPLE IN DIFFERENT DEPTHS YOU CAN SAMPLE FOR.

SO THERE'S VARIOUS MEANS AND METHODS OF DEVELOPMENT AND SOIL SAMPLE.

THIS GIVES US OUR TWO OPTIONS ON LOOKING AT SOIL SAMPLING FOR SAM HOUSTON MIDDLE SCHOOL.

SO WHAT WE'VE DONE IS WE'VE REACHED OUT TO TARRACON, WHO HAS BEEN A CONSULTANT FOR US

[02:00:01]

AND WHO'S ASSISTED US IN THE IN THE PARK CREST SCENARIOS THAT WERE GOING ON THERE ALONG WITH SUNNYBROOK.

AND SO THEY HAVE THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH US IN THOSE PROPERTIES.

WE'VE REACHED OUT TO THEM TO GET A COST OF WHAT IT WOULD COST TO TO DO SOIL SAMPLING AT SAM HOUSTON.

THIS IS AN AERIAL VIEW OF SAM HOUSTON, THE PROPERTY THAT EXISTS THERE, THE BUILDING THAT'S THERE, ALONG WITH THE THE ATHLETIC FEEL THAT IS DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM PARK CREST TO GET ORIENTED FROM THIS AND THE TENNIS COURTS THAT RESIDE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THAT PROPERTY.

TRUSTEES ANY QUESTIONS.

MA'AM.

MR JOHNSON, SORRY.

CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, BUT IS THE EPA RECOMMENDS THE SIX INCH SAMPLING CORRECT? IN FACT, THAT'S ALL THEY DID ON OUR PROPERTY ON PARK CREST WAS THE SIX INCH, WASN'T IT? NO, SIR.

SO WHAT WE HAVE AT WHAT WE'VE DONE AT PARK CREST, LET ME GET TO, SO OPTION ONE.

SO WHAT WHAT THE EPA PERFORMED WERE TWENTY SIX.

TWENTY TWO METALS IS WHAT THEY SAMPLED, AND THEY PERFORMED THEM AT FIVE DIFFERENT INTERVALS.

SO WHAT YOU SEE IS OPTION ONE IS IN LINE WITH HOW THE EPA PERFORM THEIR SAMPLING AT PARK CREST.

THEY TOOK THEM AT ZERO TO ONE ONE TWO SIX SIX TO 12, 12 TO 18 AND THEN 18 TO 24 WHAT THEY DID BY THEN IS YOU TAKE YOU TAKE A GRID, AND WITHIN THAT GRID YOU DO FIVE SAMPLING OF ZERO TO ONE.

YOU THEN MIX THAT TOGETHER.

THAT'S A COMPOSITE SAMPLE OF WHAT THAT SHOWS YOU FROM ZERO TO ONE, YOU DO THE SAME THING FROM ONE TO SIX.

AND SO DOING IT, THIS IS VERY SIMILAR TO HOW THE EPA PERFORMED THEIR SAMPLING AT PARK CREST IS OPTION ONE.

BUT THE EPA ONLY RECOMMENDED THAT WE REMOVE SIX INCHES OF SOIL, CORRECT? SO THE EPA TO BE TO BE CLEAR, THE CONTAMINANTS WERE FOUND AT THE ZERO, EXCUSE ME, AT THE ONE TO SIX INCH DEPTH FOR PARK CREST.

IF CONTAMINANTS WERE FOUND AT SIX TO 12 THAN THEY WOULD HAVE DONE THE REMEDIATION BETWEEN SIX TO 12.

THEY WERE ONLY FOUND AT THE ONE TO SIX RANGE.

BUT IF WE WANTED TO REPLICATE WHAT THE EPA DID, WE NEED TO GO WITH OPTION ONE.

YES, SIR.

THANK YOU.

ANY MORE QUESTIONS, MR. MILLER.

YEAH, JUST IN EVALUATING THE TWO OPTIONS AND APPRECIATING THE WORK THAT'S ALREADY BEEN DONE, ESPECIALLY ON PARK CREST, I THINK WE FOUND ELEVATED LEVELS OF ONE OF THESE ITEMS THAT WERE TESTED FOR AND I REALIZE OPTION ONE IS CLOSER TO WHAT WHAT THE EPA DID.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY CONCERNS.

I MEAN, OUTSIDE THE CREEK, THERE WAS SOME LEAD IN THE CREEK, BUT THEY DIDN'T FIND AND THEY'VE DONE RANDOM TESTS ALL OVER THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THEY HAVEN'T REALLY FOUND THE L EAD OR SOME OF THE OTHER THINGS THAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR REALLY, WHAT SURFACED IF YOU [INAUDIBLE] PARK CREST WAS ARSENIC.

SO DO WE NEED TO FURTHER DEFINE IT MORE LIKE AN OPTION, TWO? OR DO WE JUST GO WITH THE RANDOM APPROACH KNOWING THAT WE HAVEN'T FOUND ANY CONCERN WITH ANY OF THESE OTHER ITEMS ON THE PARK CREST PROPERTY? I'M JUST WONDERING, SHOULD WE FOCUS ON THE TWO ITEMS THAT WE'RE MOST CONCERNED WITH OR DO WE DO JUST A RANDOM SAMPLING? AND I ABSOLUTELY AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL IN THIS FIELD AND I'M LOOKING FOR GUIDANCE BECAUSE YOU KNOW, I'M CONCERNED ABOUT ARSENIC MORE THAN LEAD BECAUSE WE DIDN'T FIND ANY LEAD UP IN THE CAMPUS.

I DON'T SUSPECT WE'LL FIND IT AT PARK CREST, BUT I AM A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT US FINDING ARSENIC, SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE TEST FOR THAT.

DOES IT SEEM LIKE ARSENIC MAY HAVE BEEN USED AS INSECTICIDES OR SOMETHING, EVEN WAY BACK WHEN IT WAS COTTON FIELDS.

I MEAN, WHO KNOWS WHEN IT WAS FARM FIELDS.

SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE NOT.

I MEAN I DON'T WANT TO OVERSHOOT WHAT WE NEED TO DO, ESPECIALLY WITH THE DIFFERENCE OF ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS TO THE DISTRICT.

IF THERE'S PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE WE COULD GET AS TO WHAT IS THE REASONABLE, REASONABLE APPROACH, I WILL FOLLOW IT REGARDLESS OF THE COST.

I JUST WOULD LIKE TO HEAR WHAT IS THE MOST PROBABLE THING FOR US TO DO.

[02:05:04]

SO I CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION IF YOU'D LIKE.

SO WHEN WE RECEIVED THE FIRST OPTION, THE FIRST OPTION WAS REACHED OUT TO TERRACON AND ASKING THEM TO MIMIC EXACTLY WHAT THE EPA DID AT PARK CREST.

AND SO WHAT THE KEY POINT HERE IS WHETHER IT'S OPTION ONE OR OPTION TWO, THE METHODOLOGIES AND PROTOCOLS ARE GOING TO BE THE SAME.

WE ARE GOING TO BASE IT OFF OF THE 2020 EPA QUALITY ASSURANCE SAMPLING PROGRAM.

SO REGARDLESS OF WHICH ONE WE USE, WE WILL USE THEIR METHODS AND PROTOCOLS.

THE REMOVAL ASSESSMENT SAMPLING IT'S GOING TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE PROGRAM CONDUCTED AT PARK CREST BY THE EPA.

HOW THEY PERFORM THE SAMPLING.

IT'S GOING TO BE THE EXACT SAME WAY, WHETHER WE DO IT WITH FIVE DEPTHS OR WE DO IT WITH TWO DEPTHS, THREE DEPTHS, WHATEVER IT IS, WE DO.

SO WHAT WE'RE DOING IS MIMICKING EXACTLY THE WAY THE EPA PERFORMED THE ACTUAL METHOD AND THE METHODOLOGIES AND PROTOCOLS.

WHEN I REACHED OUT TO TERRACON AND I SAID, I NEED YOU TO PROVIDE ME A SAMPLING THAT'S APPLES TO APPLES.

THEY DID THAT, SO THEY PROVIDED OPTION ONE.

THEY ALSO SHARED WITH ME THAT, SAID JAVIER IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT THE SAMPLING THAT CAME BACK AT PARK CREST AND YOU ALSO LOOK AT WHAT THE SAMPLING HAS COME BACK FROM ALL OF THE OTHER, WELL, OUR OTHER PROPERTY THAT WE HAVE SUNNYBROOK BOTH OF THOSE PROPERTIES THE METALS THAT WE SAMPLED AT EPA SAMPLE, THEY SAMPLED TWENTY TWO METALS.

THE ONLY THING THAT CAME UP FROM FROM PARK CREST WAS THE ARSENIC AND THE LEAD.

AND AGAIN, AS YOU SAID, TRUSTEE MILLER, THE LEAD WAS ONLY AT THE CREEK.

IT WAS NOT ON THE PLAY AREAS WHERE STUDENTS CONGREGATE.

SO THE PROFESSIONALS BEING TERRACON, THEY SAID WE COULD STILL MIMIC EXACTLY WHAT EPA IS DOING, BUT ONLY FOCUS ON THE TWO METALS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AT PARK CREST AND THE ONLY TWO METALS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED IN THAT AREA.

TERRACON ALSO REACHED OUT TO THE EPA AND ASKED THEM WHETHER ANY OTHER METALS THAT WERE IDENTIFIED WITHIN THE PROPERTIES THAT WE WOULD NEED WE WOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT, AND THEIR ANSWERS WERE NO.

THE ONLY THING THAT THAT SHOWED UP WAS LEAD THIS ALL THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT, THEIR MAIN CONCERNS, BUT THEY WANTED A SAMPLE ALL TWENTY TWO METALS, AND THAT'S WHY THEY PERFORMED THEIR SAMPLING OF TWENTY TWO METALS.

SO THERE IS A MUCH LOWER COST ONLY BECAUSE IT'S A LAB COST.

SO THERE'S A HUGE LAB COST ASSOCIATED WITH TWENTY TWO METALS VERSUS TWO METALS, AND THEN THERE'S AN ADDITIONAL COST OF A DRILLING RIG.

YOU CAN SEE THAT THE THE SAMPLING OPTION ONE, THE TYPE OF DRILLING RIG.

WHEN THE EPA PERFORMED THE SAMPLING AT PARK CREST, I COORDINATED A DRILLING RIG WITH THEM AND IT'S IT'S A LITTLE RIG THAT THEY USE TO COME IN AND DO SOME PRETTY DEEP SAMPLING.

PRETTY DEEP BORING.

SO THOSE ARE THE COSTS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH OPTION ONE THAT CAN BE MINIMIZED BY GOING WITH OPTION TWO.

WELL, JUST TO FOLLOW UP AGAIN, THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT THIS IS I'M FOR DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES TO REMOVE FEAR ABOUT US HAVING CONTAMINATION AT THAT PROPERTY.

I THINK WE JUST I'M JUST LOOKING FOR SOMEBODY TO GIVE ME ADVICE.

DO WE DO WE GO WITH OPTION ONE OR OPTION TWO? IF IT'S NOT PRACTICAL TO GO WITH OPTION ONE, THEN I'M HAPPY WITH OPTION TWO.

BUT YOU'RE SAYING THE EPA WAS ONLY CONCERNED WITH LEAD AND ARSENIC.

WE'VE ONLY FOUND LEAD AND ARSENIC.

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING? NO.

SO TO CLARIFY MY STATEMENT.

YES, THEY ONLY FOUND ELEVATED LEVELS OF LEAD AND ARSENIC.

I DON'T HAVE MISSTATE IT.

YES, SIR.

TWENTY TWO METALS WERE SAMPLED BUT THE ONLY TWO METALS THAT WERE IDENTIFIED WERE LEAD AND ARSENIC.

AND OBVIOUSLY WE'RE NOT DECIDING TONIGHT.

I JUST I JUST WANTED TO HEAR IF YOU TOLD ME WHAT I REALLY WANTED TO KNOW IS IF THE EPA GAVE ANY GUIDANCE ON IT ALSO.

BUT ALTHOUGH WE ARE NOT DECIDING TONIGHT, WE ARE DECIDING ON THE COMPOSITION OF THE ACTION ITEM THAT WILL APPEAR AT THE REGULAR BOARD MEETING.

WE WILL NOT BE VOTING ON THE WAY THE LANGUAGE READS NOW IN OUR SUMMARY BACKGROUND INFORMATION SAYS CONSIDER APPROVAL OF OPTION ONE OR OPTION TWO.

I THINK WHEN IT GETS TO THE BOARD AGENDA, WE'RE EITHER SAYING WE'RE GOING WITH OPTION ONE OR WE'RE GOING WITH OPTION TWO.

SO I THINK THE AGENDA ITEM WILL READ CONSIDER APPROVAL OF OPTION ONE OR TWO THERE

[02:10:03]

FOR THE TERRACON SAMPLING.

DOES THE STAFF HAVE A RECOMMENDATION? LEGALLY IS THAT CORRECT, LEGAL? IS THAT CORRECT? WE HAVE TO CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER SO THAT I IN THE REGULAR BOARD AGENDA FOR THE END OF THE MONTH, IT WILL SAY ONE OR TWO.

AT THAT BOARD MEETING, THE MOTION COULD INCLUDE FROM THE BOARD TO BE AND MS. RAY CAN CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, BUT BOTH OPTIONS COULD BE PRESENTED IN THE BOARD AT THAT.

MAKE A MOTION FOR ONE OF THE OPTIONS IN ACTION TAKEN ON THAT OPTION.

AT THAT MEETING? AT THAT MEETING YES, MA'AM.

OK, SOMEONE HAD ONE OF THE QUESTIONS WAS WHAT IS THE ADMINISTRATION'S RECOMMENDATION? SO THE ADMINISTRATION LOOKING AT BOTH SAMPLING AND WORKING DIRECTLY WITH THE EPA, WORKING WITH DIRECTLY WITH TERRACON, LOOKING AT THE SAMPLING THAT HAS BEEN DONE AT THE PROPERTIES THAT THE DISTRICT OWNS, REVIEWING THE DATA AND LOOKING AT THE METALS IS DISTRICT.

IT IS MY RECOMMENDATION IS THAT THE OPTION TO BE CONSIDERED AND THE REASON WHY I CHOOSE OPTION TWO IS BECAUSE THOSE TWO ITEMS ARSENIC AND LEAD ARE THE TWO ITEMS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED NOT ONLY AT PARK THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AT PARK CREST, BUT THEY'RE THE ONLY TWO METALS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED IN THAT WHOLE THAT WHOLE PROGRAM FOR THE EPA.

AND SO PERFORMING METAL SAMPLING OF TWENTY TWO METALS, WHICH WOULD INCLUDE ALL OF THE METALS THAT YOU SEE THERE.

WE'RE NOT THOSE THE COUNTS FOR THOSE WERE NOT HIGH ENOUGH AT THE VARIOUS LEVELS OF THE VARIOUS DEPTH, THE FIVE DIFFERENT DEPTHS THAT THEY TOOK.

AND SO THAT WOULD THAT THAT WOULD BE MY RECOMMENDATION IS TO GO WITH OPTION TWO.

AND MS. STANLEY.

YOU HAD YOUR HAND UP, YOU GOOD? MR. JOHNSON.

I MEAN, I'M KIND OF I'M NOT GOING TO SAY I'M LEANING ONE WAY OR THE OTHER, BUT I'M KIND OF LIKE JAMIE.

THOSE WERE THE TWO METALS.

I MEAN, I GUESS I'M MY BIGGER CONCERN IS JUST THE DEPTH.

WE'RE LIMITING IT TO THE SIX INCH DEPTH WITH RESPECT TO OPTION TWO.

AND I KNOW THAT'S ALL WE FOUND WITH RESPECT TO PARK CREST NECESSARILY, BUT I DON'T NECESSARILY KNOW IF THAT'S GOING TO BE THE CASE, ESPECIALLY WE DON'T KNOW WHERE THE SOURCE OF THE ARSENIC CONTAMINATION NECESSARILY CAME FROM.

WE CAN SUSPECT IT WASN'T PROBABLY GLOBE UNION BECAUSE IT'S NOT IN THE CREEK.

SO FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE, IS THERE ANY WAY WE COULD ADD LIKE, I DON'T KNOW IF WE HAVE TO GO DOWN TO TWENTY FOUR INCHES, BUT CAN YOU ADD THE SIX TO EIGHT INCH TO 12 INCH TO OPTION TWO? YES, SIR.

AND THAT WOULD SEEM TO BE A GOOD ACCOMMODATION.

IS THERE A TECHNICAL REASON TO DO THAT? I MEAN, WOULD THE ONLY THING I JUST REMEMBER IN THE EPA REPORT, OR MAYBE IT WAS TERRACON SOMEBODY SAID THAT TYPICALLY THAT ARSENIC KIND OF RESIDES.

IT DOESN'T MIGRATE DOWN INTO THE SOIL.

THAT'S WHAT I WAS TRYING TO GET AT WITH MY ORIGINAL QUESTIONS, BUT WE DON'T HAVE ANY TYPE OF ASSURANCE THAT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FIND IT BELOW SIX INCHES, THEN I THINK MAYBE WE SHOULD TEST FOR IT.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THE BOTH BOTH PROFESSIONAL PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS HAVE SHARED WITH ME IS THAT WHEN WE START TO DO SAMPLING AT DIFFERENT DEPTHS, WE START TO LOOK AT WHAT ARE WE USING THAT PROPERTY FOR AND THAT PROPERTY RIGHT NOW, IF WE FIND SOMETHING THAT LET'S SAY WE FIND SOMETHING AT SIX TO 12 INCHES.

THE QUESTION IS WHAT ARE YOU FINDING AT SIX TO 12 INCHES? AND IS THAT SOMETHING WHERE YOU LEAVE IT ALONE BECAUSE YOU'RE ACTUALLY IT DOESN'T HINDER YOU AT THE SIX? IF YOU'RE ABOVE THE SIX INCH LINE, FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU'RE YOU'VE GOT GRASS, YOU'VE GOT SOD AND YOU'VE GOT TOP SOIL ON TOP OF THE SIX INCHES YOU'RE NOT AFFECTING, THAT'S NOT AFFECTING YOU IN IN HOW YOU'RE HOW YOU'RE UTILIZING THAT PROPERTY.

SO THE QUESTION THEN BECOMES IF YOU WANT TO SIT TO GET TO DEPTH SIX TO 12, 12 TO 18, 20, 18 TO 20 FOR THEY WILL SAMPLE WHEREVER WE IF THAT'S WHAT OUR PREFERENCE IS, THEY HAVE NO PROBLEM IN DOING THAT.

THERE IS A COST ASSOCIATED WITH THE DRILLING RIGS THAT GO WITH THOSE AND THERE'S A COST ASSOCIATED WITH THE ADDITIONAL LAB PIECE, BUT I CAN GET THAT FOR YOU.

BUT I MEAN, I GUESS MY CONCERN IS WE HAVE A COMMUNITY GARDEN AT PARK CREST.

SO YES, THEY ONLY FOUND ARSENIC WITHIN THE FIRST SIX INCHES OF DEPTH IF THEY FOUND ARSENIC NOT IN THE FIRST SIX INCHES, BUT THEN FOUND IT DEEPER.

THE COMMUNITY GARDEN, I MEAN, SIX INCHES IS NOTHING ANY DECENT PLANTS CAN HAVE

[02:15:04]

ROOTS THAT GO BEYOND SIX INCHES AND GET DOWN FURTHER IN THE SOIL THAN THAT.

I DON'T KNOW IF SAM HOUSTON EVEN HAS A COMMUNITY GARDEN.

I MEAN, BUT I WOULD THINK IF WE'RE ONLY TESTING THE FIRST SIX INCHES, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE ONE ANYTIME SOON.

BECAUSE, LIKE I SAID, ANY TYPE OF PLANT IS GOING TO GO DEEPER THEN SIX INCHES.

SO IS THERE A TIME CONSTRAINT ON THIS ITEM? AND THEN THAT'S ONE QUESTION AND THEN BOARD, IS THERE A NEED FOR FURTHER DISCUSSION BEFORE TRYING TO CHOOSE ONE OF THE OPTIONS TO VOTE ON AT THE REGULAR BOARD MEETING IN SEPTEMBER? I MEAN, I THINK THAT HE CAN GET US THE INFORMATION I REQUESTED, WHICH IS JUST THAT ADDITIONAL DEPTH AND WE COULD EITHER ADD IT ON OR NOT.

I CAN GET YOU AN OPTION.

I CAN PROVIDE YOU AN OPTION 2B.

SO YOU HAVE AN OPTION 2A AN OPTION 2B, WHICH WOULD THEN ADD THE SIX TO 12.

OK, AND IF THAT COULD BE ADDED IN OUR BOARD REGULAR BOARD MEETING BOARD BOOK IN PREPARATION FOR THE VOTE AT THE REGULAR BOARD MEETING.

IS THAT SATISFACTORY WITH EVERYONE? YEAH, JUST ONE QUICK QUESTION.

COULD YOU ALSO CONFIRM, I GUESS, FROM THE EPA OR TERRACON IF THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE ANY FINDINGS OR IF THEIR EXPERTISE THAT YOU DON'T FIND ARSENIC BELOW SIX INCHES OR IN THE SIX TO 12 RANGES OR THOSE OTHER RANGES THAT WERE TESTED, I THINK THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE ALSO SOMETHING THAT WE WOULD WANT TO KNOW.

I'M SORRY.

COULD YOU CLARIFY YOUR QUESTION AGAIN? SO I GUESS MR. MR. MILLER HAD ASKED THE QUESTION, AND I THINK I REMEMBER HEARING THEM SAY SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES THAT ARSENIC WOULDN'T GO BELOW A CERTAIN LEVEL, BUT I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE.

I THOUGHT I HEARD THAT, BUT I'M NOT SURE IF THAT'S THE CASE.

THAT WAS THE STATEMENT THAT WOULD ARSENIC DOES IS IT DOES NOT MIGRATE.

IT'S A METAL THAT DOES NOT MOVE DOWN, SO IT WILL NOT GO FROM.

IT DOESN'T START TO GO FROM ONE INCH.

AND SO OVER TIME STARTS TO TO MIGRATE ITSELF DOWN.

SO IT STAYS AT THAT LEVEL.

SO IF IT'S AT THAT LEVEL.

SO FROM WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, IT WON'T GO BELOW SIX INCHES OR YOU'RE SEEING IT, WHATEVER LEVEL IT'S FOUND THAT IT WON'T GO BELOW THAT LEVEL.

WHATEVER LEVEL IT'S IDENTIFIED AT, THAT'S THE LEVEL IT'S AT.

OKAY.

OBVIOUSLY, WHAT WE DO IS IF WE GO ADD ADDITIONAL DIRT, THEN WE, YOU KNOW, THE LEVEL GOES DOWN.

BUT THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS IS WHY WHEN THEY DO, THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED ZERO TO ONE SAMPLING.

WHAT THEY DO IS THEY THEY REMOVE ANY VEGETATION TO GET TO THE SOIL LEVEL FIRST.

THEN FROM THERE, THAT'S WHEN THEY START DOING THEIR DEPTH INTERVALS.

OK, OK.

SO IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE SOME INFORMATION THAT YOU WILL PROVIDE AND INCLUDE IN THE BOARD AGENDA.

TRUSTEES, IT'S BEEN A GREAT TWO HOURS AND 19 MINUTES.

MOVING FORWARD.

WE FOR THE NEXT UPCOMING AGENDA, WE'RE GOING TO BRING THOSE BOND ENHANCEMENTS AND BOND ORIGINAL NUMBERS AFTER A MEETING WITH MR. GLICK PENDING.

WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT SUNNYBROOK AND COMMUNITY GARDEN STANDARDS AND SOIL AND PROTOCOLS AND ALSO A SUMMARY OF OUR PORTABLES WHERE THEY'RE USED, THE NUMBERS AND ALL OF THAT.

AND THOSE ARE ALL PENDING AT A FUTURE AGENDA.

YES, SIR.

ARE YOU, WHENEVER YOU GET DONE I JUST WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A COMMENT.

OK.

ALL RIGHT, YOU WILL.

OK, THEN FOR THE ACTION ITEMS THAT ARE PRINTED ON PAGE SECOND PAGE OF OUR AGENDA, WE'RE GOING TO PULL 4C3 THREE FOR FURTHER DISCUSSION WHEN IT COMES BACK TO US ABOUT THE STANDARDIZATION OF DIGITAL MARQUEE.

THEN WE'RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD TO OUR REGULAR AGENDA ITEMS 4C12, 45 AND 67.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER THINGS THAT I MISSED OR ANYTHING WE NEED TO ADD? MR. BEACH.

THANK YOU, MS. GRIFFIN I JUST WANT AN OBSERVATION FOR THE BOARD.

SINCE COVID IN THESE COMMITTEE MEETINGS, YOU CAN TELL WE ARE RUNNING WAY LONGER THAN WHAT THE ALLOTTED TIME THAT WE ARE PUTTING DOWN AS FAR AS OUR MEETING IS CONCERNED.

THAT'S GOOD BECAUSE THIS IS A TIME THAT WE HAVE.

WE DO ASK QUESTIONS AND WE DO AS A BOARD COME TOGETHER AS FAR AS WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT IN THAT WAY, WE KIND OF KNOW WHEN WE GO INTO A BOARD MEETING HOW WE'RE GOING TO GO UP OR DOWN ON A CERTAIN TOPIC OR WHATEVER.

MY QUESTION IS IS ARE WE DOING? ARE WE ALLOTTING ENOUGH TIME IN OUR BOARD IN THIS COMMITTEE MEETINGS WHEN WE

[02:20:01]

SET THIS FORMAT UP? ARE WE GIVING ENOUGH TIME BETWEEN FOR THE FACILITY? IT'S LIKE WE'RE RUSHING THROUGH WHEN WE NEED TO REALLY IF THERE'S THINGS THAT NEED TO BE DISCUSSED.

AND AGAIN, I MEAN, I DON'T WANT TO GO TO MIDNIGHT ON COMMITTEE MEETINGS, AND I DON'T THINK ANYBODY HERE DOES.

BUT I KNOW THAT WE START AT THREE O'CLOCK AND THEN WE'VE ALREADY GOT THE NEXT ONE SCHEDULED THAT'S ON THE BOOKS THAT AT FOUR O'CLOCK AND WE'RE 5:21.

SO I'M JUST CONCERNED.

OR OR SHOULD WE LOOK AT SETTING EACH COMMITTEE, MEETING A TWO HOUR WINDOW? OR I KNOW THAT ONCE WE POST IT, WE HAVE TO STICK WITH THAT.

BUT WE ARE SINCE COVID REALLY LOADING UP THE COMMITTEE MEETING CONVERSATION WITH A LOT OF AGENDA ITEMS. AND IT SEEMED LIKE WE ALL HAVE COMMENT ABOUT SOMETHING THAT'S BEING SAID, WHICH IS GOOD.

YOU KNOW, I'M NOT I'M NOT CONDONING AGAINST THAT, BUT I'M JUST THINKING THAT WE ARE REALLY USING TIME THAT WE, I DON'T KNOW, RUNNING OVER INTO THE OTHER COMMITTEES.

I LIKE YOUR OBSERVATION, AND BY THE TIME I GET TO SEE THE AGENDA, WHEN I SAW IT, I WAS LIKE OH, WE WON'T MAKE THIS AN HOUR.

HOPEFULLY WE CAN DO IT IN TWO.

BUT BECAUSE MOST OF THESE WERE THINGS THAT NEEDED TO BE DISCUSSED, WE ALLOCATED THE TIME .

MR. JOHNSON.

OH, NOTHING.

SO.

I GUESS WE CAN.

WE HAVE THAT OBSERVATION, AND THEN I GUESS I CAN GET WITH DR.

LOPEZ AND THE LIAISONS OF THE COMMITTEES.

MR. MILLER.

YEAH, JUST OBSERVATION FOR THAT IS, YOU KNOW, I KNOW THAT WE STARTED AT THREE.

WE RARELY GET HOME BEFORE 9:00.

SO THAT'S FINE.

I DON'T.

I THINK WHAT WHAT IT DOES, JOHNNY POTENTIALLY IS WHEN WE DO HAVE A BRIEFER AGENDA, IT GIVES US STABILITY, THE ABILITY TO NOT HAVE TO WAIT AN HOUR BEFORE THE NEXT SCHEDULE.

WE COULD JUST MOVE RIGHT THROUGH THEM.

SO IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME THAT I DON'T EVEN LOOK AT THE CLOCK, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.

WE JUST HAVE THREE COMMITTEES THAT WE NEED TO DO.

IF WE DID GET THROUGH EARLY, I WOULDN'T WANT TO WAIT HERE FOR AN HOUR BECAUSE WE SCHEDULED MORE TIME.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S A.

TO ME IS DOING IT LIKE THIS IS THE MOST FLEXIBLE BECAUSE IT'S OK TO DRAG OVER.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO START.

OBVIOUSLY, THE FINANCE COMMITTEE BEFORE FOR WHICH I THINK MICHELE HOGAN, OUR BOARD OF ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES PERSON, WOULD TELL US THAT IT'S OK TO GO LONG.

YOU JUST CAN'T GO EARLY.

SO MY ONLY COMMENT WAS IT GIVES US THE FLEXIBILITY TO GO RIGHT INTO THE NEXT ONE IN CASE WE DO GET THROUGH EARLY.

WELL WITH, LIKE I SAID, WITH COVID AND THE THINGS THAT ARE ON THE AGENDA, JUST LIKE RIGHT NOW, SHE'S ALREADY GOT A PRETTY LOADED BUNCH OF FACILITIES COMMITTEE MEETING FOR NEXT TIME THAT WE MEET.

AND, YOU KNOW, AS WELL AS I DO THAT THE FINANCE AND AUDIT SOME OF THE FINANCE IS ALREADY BEEN DISCUSSED IN THE FACILITIES.

SITUATIONS LIKE WE DO WHEN WE HAVE A BOARD MEETING AND I'M JUST LOOKING AT THAT, YOU KNOW, ARE WE ALLOTTING THE TIME? YOU KNOW, IF IF THE BOARD MEMBER HAS A QUESTION, I DON'T WANT THEM TO FEEL THAT JUST BECAUSE OF TIME I'M NOT GOING TO ASK THAT QUESTION BECAUSE WE DON'T NORMALLY DISCUSS IT AT THE BOARD MEETING ITSELF? WE ALREADY HAVE EITHER IN YOUR MIND, YOU ALREADY APPROVED ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

THIS IS A TIME THAT WE REALLY GET DOWN TO THE MEAT AND POTATOES OF WHAT THE DISTRICT IS DOING AND THIS WHEN WE DECIDE OUR VOTES AND HOW WE FEEL AND WHAT'S GOING ON AND WE ASK PERTINENT QUESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION TO DEAL WITH.

SO I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE ASK THOSE QUESTIONS.

BUT I JUST FEEL LIKE, TOO, THAT SOMETIMES, YOU KNOW, AS OF NOW, I WON'T SAY ANYTHING BECAUSE WE'RE TAKING TOO MUCH TIME, BUT THAT YOU REALLY WANT TO ASK THAT QUESTION.

SO THAT'S MY ONLY PURPOSE FOR LOOKING AT THE TIME FRAMES THAT WE'RE, I MEAN, WHEN I LOOK AT THREE O'CLOCK AND IT'S FOUR O'CLOCK AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO DO SIX O'CLOCK FOR DISTRICT AFFAIRS.

IT'S ALREADY 5:25 AND WE'RE NOT EVEN TO FINANCE COMMITTEE YET.

SO JUST FOOD FOR THOUGHT OBSERVATION.

MR. BEACH.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR OBSERVATION.

I WOULD SAY THAT THIS SHOULD WOULD BE THE PRESIDENT AND OUR BOARD SERVICING MANAGER AND THE SUPERINTENDENT AND MAYBE ALL THE OFFICERS, I'M NOT SURE.

SO I THINK THAT THAT IS THAT IS A THAT IS A CONVERSATION, AND I WOULD THROW THAT TO THE PRESIDENT AND HE CAN COME BACK AND SUGGEST HOW WE SHOULD BASICALLY MOVE FORWARD.

IS THAT AGREEABLE TO EVERYONE? MS. STANLEY.

YOU KNOW, GOING TO BE THE VOICE OF CONTENTION TONIGHT, BUT I'M JUST GOING TO THROW ONE MORE THING OUT THERE.

REMEMBER, WE DO ADVERTISE THIS FOR THE COMMUNITY AS WELL.

AND WHEN WE TELL THE COMMUNITY THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THESE MEETINGS AT CERTAIN TIMES, KNOWING THAT WE'RE NOT REALLY GOING TO ADHERE TO THOSE TIMES, ARE WE

[02:25:03]

CONVEYING TO THE COMMUNITY THAT IT'S IT'S GOING TO BE FIVE TO SEVEN AND THEN SEVEN TO 8:30 AND 8:30 TO 10? I'M JUST LIKE YOU, JOHNNY.

I'M NOT SAYING I DON'T LIKE WHAT WE'RE DOING.

I LIKE THE FLEXIBILITY.

BUT PLEASE KEEP IN MIND ALSO THAT WE'RE ALSO SUPPOSED TO BE POSTING THESE FOR A REASON, AND THAT IS FOR THE COMMUNITY TO BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE.

I KNOW WE DON'T HAVE THE COMMUNITY, BUT WHAT ABOUT THAT PERSON WHO DIDN'T SHOW UP TO PARTICIPATE BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T GET HERE AT FOUR O'CLOCK FOR THE FINANCE MEETING, EVEN THOUGH WE KNEW THE FINANCE MEETING WASN'T REALLY GOING TO START AT FOUR O'CLOCK OR WHO COULDN'T GET HERE FOR THE FACILITIES MEETING, BUT WE KNEW IT REALLY WASN'T GOING TO START AT THE TIME THAT WE POSTED.

IT WAS GOING TO START.

SO I WOULD JUST LIKE THAT ALSO TO BE FOOD OF THOUGHT WITH OUR COMMITTEE MEMBERS WHEN THEY GO TO TALK ABOUT THIS RIGHT, THANK YOU.

IT'S KIND OF HARD TO TELL THE AGENDA AND HOW LONG IT'S GOING TO TAKE.

BUT I THINK THE OBSERVATIONS AND LIKE I SAID, I AM KICKING IT OVER TO THE PRESIDENT AND THE SUPERINTENDENT AND THE BOARD SERVICING MANAGER AND THEN AT THIS TIME BEFORE WE ADJOURN.

IS THERE NEED FOR AN EXECUTIVE SESSION? NO, THANK YOU SO MUCH SO CAN I HAVE A MOTION TO ADJOURN? THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION.
