Excerpts From Brent Todd email:
I spoke to Tom Aspell this morning re: banner hardware. He asked whether we could provide a map of the poles where we would like to add hardware, and an inventory of what's missing. This could then be passed to Ed Roberge, who would confirm on the load bearing for the poles and specifics of the hardware needed.
The PVA could then request preference as to whether it wanted a gift grant from the City to buy/install hardware or let the City pay for the hardware directly, as funds become available, and let them install it. There could also be an in-between option where the City could buy/install the hardware and provide "license" for the PVA to use it
[No commitment on] timing for funding
From Brent Todd email:
Al and I both spoke with Rick Jaques regarding the PVA potentially using the PHS Rolfe facility for storage. Rick stated the PHS position is they do not want the responsibility of confidential tax records and other paperwork that does not belong to the Historical society. Even though they have an office with an alarm system, they don't keep PHS records there until they are archived. If we want them to reconsider, my best guess is we need to provide more information regarding the nature of the materials to be stored (tax records, paper duplicates or only copies), and an accurate description of how much there is (i.e., three banker's boxes worth, etc.). As an aside, they don't mind storing our PA system in the pantry, probably because it could be (and has been) available for other users to borrow. As to additional help for the Farmers Market, Rick will announce at upcoming PCC/PHS board meetings that, beyond the monetary contributions of those organizations, physically assisting is a community service activity thought of to help the people of Penacook.
