notes: ____Transmitter Drive and Update: David Owens reports failure of air conditioner
around one month ago. Recommendation, replacing unit:
First bid for replace current air conditioning unit, air handler $6200.00 Second bid will be obtained from Gary Froescher, Contractor, he proposed KOPN but a commercial grade conditioner for transmitter building. The current conditioner is a residential unit, it has been volatile for the last three years. Current consensus agree with the purchase of a new air conditioner, and recommend the funds to purchase the conditioner should come from capital development
