MONTHLY REPORTS

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT MONTHLY REPORT

Highway Superintendent Douglas Snickles presented the following report to the Board:

Town of St. Armand Highway Report for the January 12, 2021 Meeting

    1) There has not been any big snow, but we have been plowing or sanding just about every day.
    2) We have been helping with the skating rink with the broom, when asked.
    3) All three platforms for the transfer station are completed. Two of them are put in place, but the third one will have to wait until they move the dumpster.
    4) We had to do some work on the one-ton plow. Hopefully, this gets us through the winter. It is due to be replaced next year.
    5) Water really hasn't been running yet, but the Moody Pond project seems to be working right now.
    6) We can probably start the ceiling upstairs this week if the weather stays good.
    7) We bought a couple of spare rims for the big trucks so we have an extra tire mounted, if needed.
    8) All trucks plus the loader were checked out and greased last week.
    9) We have been organizing and cleaning the parts room.
    10) The sidewalks are all cleaned and sanded. The snow blower is working great.
    11) We will start removing more old shelving from the upstairs Town Hall.
    12) I would like to order the new loader so it could be here for spring.


13) The newly-installed heating system doesn't seem to be eliminating the humidity up in the attic of the Highway Garage. It does not seem to blow hot air all the time. We unhooked the exhaust fan because it was taking all of the hot air out of the garage. I am not sure what the solution is.

Winemiller: We did have Seth from J. Hogan come in a couple of times to look at it. Doug, did they get back to you?

Snickles: He was going to schedule a technician come up and verify their system is working. The ceiling is so high; the new heating system isn't doing anything for the humidity upstairs.

Winemiller: I put a call into Matt Raymond, one of the Highway Garage task force members. Matt was going to reach out to Doug and discuss the possibility of installing vents.

Snickles: We are talking about putting two gable ends, one in the front and one in the back, something to knock down the humidity. I don't think there is enough venting to release the humidity that is up there. There are soffit vents at the bottom of the roof and then there is the gable vents, but I don't think that is enough.

Derrick Martineau: With the venting from the soffit to the range vent, do they have proper vent above the insulation so there is good air flow there? If I am here on Friday, I would like to take a look. I might have a couple of ideas.

Snickles: Good.

Winemiller: Does anyone have any questions for Doug?

There were none.

WATER DEPARTMENT MONTHLY REPORT

Cory Skiff submitted the following written report to the Board.

Town of St. Armand Water Report for the January 12, 2021 Meeting

    12/1/20 – Sent in monthly sample to the lab.
    12/23/20 – There was a water break at 70 River Road. The water meter under the house froze and split, Causing the reservoir to drop three feet. We lost roughly around 25,000 gallons of treated water. With the help of TDI, Inc., I was able to locate the curb stop and shut the water supply to the house off.
    12/28/20 – Sent in the nitrate and lead and copper results to the NYS Department of Health.
    12/29/20 – Received the results from the sample taken at Dean Everritt's house. He had a concern about lead in his water. The results were negative.

Winemiller: Does anyone have any questions for Water?

Karl Law: Is the reservoir back up to where it belongs?

Winemiller: Yes.

CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER'S MONTHLY REPORT

Code Enforcement Officer Derrick Martineau presented the following report to the Board:

Town of St. Armand Code Enforcement Officer Report for the January 12, 2021 Meeting

    Returned 9 calls and 3 emails.
    2. 1 permit was issued
    3. Inspections are conducted on ongoing open permits.
    4. Gladd court date scheduled for December was canceled due to Covid. Hoping it can be rescheduled in February. I am going to do a full inspection on the property. I believe Mr. Gladd is going to try and get a permit to do some repairs. I need to get in the building to see the inside and outside before I consider any future building permits that are expected. I'm not sure the building could withstand any more work. If my findings are that I can't do a permit, I am going to send a letter to the attorney and the Board requesting that I go forward with a condemnation.
    5. I have reviewed the plans for Dollar General. Everything meets and exceeds State and Local codes and I will issue the permit this week.

Warrene McCarthy: Where is the Dollar General going to be located?

Winemiller: I don't have the address in front of me.

Jennifer Fuller: On Route 3 across from my house.

Winemiller: Does anyone have any questions for Derrick? Does anyone have any questions on any building permits? Now is the time.

There were none.

WASTEWATER DEPARTMENT MONTHLY REPORT

Wastewater Superintendent Stanley Ingison submitted the following written report to the Board.

Town of St. Armand Wastewater Department Report for the January 12, 2021 meeting.

    1) Did daily collections, testing and recorded data.
    2) Did daily checks of all systems at the PTB and WWTP and recorded the data.
    3) Wrote up the DEC monthly operating report and the discharge monitoring report and submitted them digitally.
    4) Did weekly generator checks.
    5) Did weekly greasing of the paddle wheel drive and clarifier drives.
    6) Did weekly grit removal from the classifier drive outfall and unloaded it into the transfer station trash dumpster.
    7) I did the weekly flexing of all the aeration diffusers.
    8) The Core Climate system computer did die 2 weeks before the end of its end of service day, so it is a good thing that we got it ordered a couple of weeks before that. Joe did come and installed and programmed it last Friday just before the single digit temperatures came in over the weekend. We are lucky that Mother Nature had been kind to us with warmer weather than usual up until then as the control room and generator room heaters were working extra hard to keep the temperatures above freezing in the processing room since the computer could not activate its heater. Some other equipment has been changed to manual operations until we got the core climate system back in service. Nicely everything is back up and running again now.
    9) Architecture, Engineering and Land Surveying, Northeast PLLC (AES) did confirm that the solar system plans did include surge protection for the system, but I have not heard anything further on the status of getting the system back up and running. The system has been two thirds down for 5 months now and may not get back up and running fully until late spring or summer.
    10) Highway did construct new loading stands for the transfer station dumpsters and have gotten 2 of the three installed. The third one has limited access making it difficult to install. They were great about resetting the structures so they would be clear of the plow zones if it doesn't get done until spring.
    11) As you already know, it appears that we had some kind of a backup in the sewer main in the vicinity of manholes # 3 to # 6 which pushed its way to escape into the basement of the St. Paul's Church through an un-trapped floor drain in the kitchen which flooded the entire floor surface and up the walls a little of all the rooms on that level. They had to bring in a cleaning service to get it all cleaned and deodorized.
    12) Just a reminder: This year, 2021, the Town needs to get the new effluent disinfection system engineered and installed by December 31, 2021 so it is ready to go online on May 1, 2022. Remember that the engineering needs to include upgrades and/or repairs to the chemical feed system manhole and the effluent valve vault to stop ground water leakage into each of them. Also keep in mind that phosphorus limits are going to be lowered very soon by the NYSDEC for our plant, so we need to keep working on stopping that change and/or work on engineering methods to remove more phosphorus and have the money to install same and to afford the chemicals if needed.

Winemiller: Stan, I am going to interrupt you for a moment. I did have a meeting this week with Rob Wick, Essex County Planning and Greg Swart from AES. There is a grant that just came out with a zero percent match. We are going to be applying for that very quickly. We are hoping that between the WQUIP grant from DEC and this million-dollar grant that we will be applying for, this will cover the disinfection system and get a head start on the new phosphorus requirement. I will touch on this a little later in the meeting to set up a public hearing.

    13) I have gotten in trouble for not having my pager with me at all times even though that has gotten me in trouble previously by breaking it or losing it while trying to work with it attached to me. I will try again to keep it with me at all times while being careful not to lose or damage it; but do keep in mind that this can be difficult at times and, as usual, I am being asked to work above my pay level for all I am doing for the township.
    14) I continue to work on the St. Armand Wastewater Department Comprehensive Improvement and Repair Program.

Winemiller: Are there were any questions on the Wastewater report?
There were none.

HISTORIAN REPORT

Town Historian Edward Kanze submitted the following written report to the Board Report to the Board:

Town of St. Armand Historian Report, December 2020

The year 2020 brought history-making changes to St. Armand as the so-called “novel coronavirus,” known as Covid-19, fired a pandemic heard around the world. The virus and responses to it were not the only important events of the year, but they were certainly the most dramatic and life-changing.

On March 20, as the virus began to spread in New York and the death toll began to mount, Governor Andrew Cuomo issued guidance on essential services under a New York State “On Pause” executive order.

St. Armand moved quickly to follow state guidelines and to protect the health of its citizens and professional staff. On March 23, Town Supervisor Davina Winemiller issued an order to ensure that only one person work in Town Hall at any time. A single exception was made for Highway Superintendent Doug Snickles and Highway Crew members, who were building a new records storage room upstairs in Town Hall. All entering Town Hall were required to register to help with contact tracing, if needed.

During the year the Town Supervisor acquired an ultraviolet (UV) light for use in disinfecting rooms in town buildings.

Recognizing that history is being made in St. Armand this year, Town Historian posted an invitation on the Bloomingdale Neighborhood Facebook page, encouraging residents to donate Covid-prevention and lockdown-related artifacts to the archives. A donation box was set up inside the front door of Town Hall.

On Nov. 9, Essex County's Dept. of Health contacted Supervisor Winemiller about an Adirondack Daily Enterprise reporter. The reporter, who had tested positive for Covid-19, had spoken to three poll workers in the parking lot of Town Hall on November 3. The reporter did not enter the Town Hall, and the three poll workers quarantined for 14 days.

On Nov. 18, Supervisor Winemiller announced that in the near term, Town board meetings would be held remotely via Webinar, a meeting enabling platform on the internet. The Town Hall would be locked and open to visitors by appointment only.

The Town Historian consulted with local media experts Josh Clement and Andy Flynn about appropriate recording devices for use in conducting living history interviews with St. Armand seniors. Recommendations were made, products were researched, and equipment was purchased for use in recording interviews and meetings. Unfortunately, the acquisition of equipment coincided with the arrival of Covid-19. Interviewing will commence in the future when deemed safe for all parties. Correspondence was conducted with Bryon Tuthill, son of former St. Armand Councilman Frank Tuthill, about interviewing his father about St. Armand history.

The Town Historian made multiple visits to the archives upstairs in the Town Hall and began familiarizing himself with the materials gathered there. He is grateful to his predecessors and to the donors who contributed to the unique collections. He is also grateful to Doug Snickles and the Highway Crew, whose fine work building a new records room makes historical work easier and more pleasant than in the past. The new arrangements will help allow a methodical organization of the archive to proceed.

The Historian responded to research requests, including ones from Howard Riley (seeking old photos of his family farm), David Martin (seeking help identifying figures in a 1933 Bloomingdale School photo that includes his father), and an engineering firm seeking information about a former campground on the St. Armand portion of the shore of Lake Placid. Michele Tucker, curator of the Adirondack Room at the Saranac Lake Free Library, was greatly helpful in digging for information and photographs. The Historian also conducted an informal interview with local history expert Sandy Hayes at his home. The principal topic of discussion was the forested land east of Moose Pond Road now included in the McKenzie Mountain Wilderness Area.

Finally, the Historian devoted about two weeks of solid work in early 2020 researching and writing a short history of the Town of St. Armand. Editorial comments have been sought, and revisions are in progress. The aim is to produce an up-to-date account that will honor the accomplishments of St. Armand women as well as men, as well as the First Peoples (American Indians, Native Americans) who likely visited and inhabited the area we call St. Armand for perhaps 13,000 years. Of course, the European-American settlers who founded Bloomingdale in the early 19th century remain a central part of the story, too. The short history will also include a look at abolitionist Gerrit Smith's efforts to establish a freed slave colony in St. Armand, similar to the one he established and recruited John Brown to oversee in North Elba. Possible uses for the history include distribution via the Town's website and publication as a pamphlet or short book. Benefits of the work include showing the rich and varied history of the Township, which make it an outstanding and agreeable place to live and run a business.

The Town Historian would like to thank the Town Council, the Town Supervisor, Town Clerk Barb Darrah, and all others who contributed to making this challenging year for St. Armand a generally safe and productive one.

Respectfully submitted, Dec. 28, 2020

St. Armand Historian

Winemiller: Are there any questions on the Historian Report?
There were none.

2. By an eligible "irrevocable letter of credit" issued by a qualified bank other than the bank with the deposits in favor of the Town for a term not to exceed 90 days with an aggregate value equal to 140% of the aggregate amount of deposits and the agreed upon interest, if any. A qualified bank is one whose commercial paper and other unsecured short-term debt obligations are rated in one of the three highest rating categories by at least one nationally recognized statistical rating organization or by a bank that is in compliance with applicable federal minimum risk-based capital requirements, or

OLD BUSINESS:

Winemiller: Cure Cottage Development Assessment Lawsuit: I have heard nothing more. I have not heard if it is moving forward or if they have dropped it. I have not received anything from the court with a court date; I just wanted to give you an update that I have not heard anything.

Winemiller: Gladd Property Update: Derrick filled us in in regard to this issue earlier in this meeting.

Winemiller: Winter Skating Program Update: The program has started. It has been incredibly popular this year. We are taking several COVID precautions: Everyone is required to wear a mask, we have tape set up in the building marking 6' apart; it has been reported to me that parents are bringing lawn chairs and sitting outside so there are not too many people in the building.
There were no questions on old business.

NEW BUSINESS

Winemiller: Website Email Spoofs: Some of you have received spoof emails. They are getting our email addresses from our website. They are using our email addresses to send emails. I talked to Hillary about it and she is looking into a way to change it. I wanted to let you know she is working on that.

Winemiller: Lake Placid Land Conservancy – Echo Bay: They have contacted us. Basically, what they are trying to do is have NYS purchase the Echo Bay property on Lake Placid. It will change our tax base in St. Armand. I only want to touch on this today and bring your attention to this and let you know more information will be forthcoming and we will talk about this in February at our next meeting. They basically are looking for a Resolution from us stating that the Town of St. Armand agrees with this, and we want this to move forward and become state land. I just don't know if that is in our best interest. More information will be forthcoming. Does anyone have any questions? Karl Law: Thank you for the update.

Winemiller: Moody Pond Parking Tickets – Appoint (2): I wanted to talk to the Board tonight about appointing two people to help us give out parking tickets at Moody Pond. There are two retired gentlemen who live right there. They are both willing and would like to volunteer to do the job. They don't really want money. I am not sure if they can volunteer to do it. I have a call into our insurance agent about that. But regardless, I need some help with this. Last summer I went 53 days without a day off because of writing those parking tickets. These two gentlemen live right there and can be at the area in under 30 seconds and can help police the parking there. I would like the Board's permission to appoint these two gentlemen to issue parking tickets at Moody Pond. Either we would pay them a very minimal amount or they would be volunteers; however, we have to do it so that we can have them protected under our insurance umbrella. Donald Amell: So you are talking about making them Constables? Is that what you are suggesting?

Winemiller: No. No. They would basically be like a meter maid. Jennifer Fuller: Would there be any type of conflict of interest there? Amell: Of course there would. Where I am going with it, Davina…… it sounds like we are suggesting a new position, in fact, two positions. What I am getting at is what exactly are we calling that position and we would have to go through the process of a Resolution.

Winemiller: How about we put this on the agenda on January 26th. Amell: Have you talked to the attorney, Dan Manning? Winemilller: I have not, but I can. I would certainly do that. And, I will put it on the agenda for February 9th. The Board agreed.

Winemiller: Solar Farm Local Law: I emailed a draft of the Solar Local Law, regarding Solar farms. The only reason we would enact this local law is to protect our farm land. Board members have you had a chance to review what I sent? Karl Law: Yes.

Winemiller: How do you all feel about moving forward with this Local Law? Amell: Don't we have to have a Public Hearing on this?

Winemiller: Absolutely. Amell: To that end, I think we should reach out to any farmers we have that have farmland around here and get their input. I think the APA could help you get an idea of what farmlands are in our area. Even if means a special invitation to those folks to attend the Public Hearing, I would like to talk to those folks at the Public Hearing before we make a decision.

Winemiller: Why don't we put this back on the agenda for February 9th, and I will see if I can get some feedback from some local farmers and we can talk about it again on February 9th. The Board agreed.

Winemiller: St. Armand's Youth Task Force – Ice Rink: The next thing I want to talk to you about is an idea that I had and I met with the St. Armand Youth Task Force because this is something the Youth Task Force would fundraise for, but I wanted to talk to the Town Board and see what you all think. What I am proposing is creating a building on the Youth ice skating rink property. The building would be an unheated, pole barn-type shelter, 4 metal walls, 200 feet long by 80 feet wide. It would have an ice hockey rink and a big oval for ice skating in the winter, and in the summertime the ice hockey rink would become a basketball court, and the ice skating oval could become a roller blading rink. It would have seating all the way around it and a concrete floor with drains. (At this point, Davina displayed several visual pictures and google earth on the webinar screen). As you can see, it is close to the Youth Building as it exists now, directly behind the firehouse. It would not interfere with the ball fields or any of the baseball games. I am proposing this building would have sliding barn doors and it would be locked unless there were activities going on. We could have evening hours in the summer for basketball and roller blading. The Youth Task Force loves the idea and they are willing to fundraise to earn enough money to install this building. We will have more details on the building…… Adam Mayville: Where would parking be for the baseball games?

Winemiller: There is a parking lot up by Andrew Fawcett's, and then we also have parking on the side next to the Firehouse, so there is parking available right now. Amell: I wouldn't count on that parking up by Fawcett's. Because of the insurance possibility issues….that's still up in the air, too but that is a completely separate topic.

Winemiller: You are correct Don; the Fire Department does own that parking lot….but the insurance company told us we should stop working on it….but they did not tell us we have to block it off for parking. You are right, we don't own it and we don't know. I think the chances are slim to none that they would block it off so no one could park there. But, you are right. We don't know. Amell: And, I wouldn't count on the other lot you are indicating…. that really isn't a parking area. The Fire Department has agreements with National Grid, Tree Services, etc. Has this idea been bounced this off the Fire Department about this? That would be a good starting point to discuss it with them. And maybe the Booster Club for that matter? They are a strong investor in things pertaining to the ball field.

Winemiller: Can you expound on that, Don, a little bit? Amell: Just a notion, if nothing else, courtesy. There are a lot of players besides us on this kind of a notion. If the day does come and the Fire Department wants to do fund raising, that area is a big part of that, and has been for decades. I would at least discuss it with them, and the Booster Club, too.

Winemiller: I can set up a meeting with Kevin and ask him to bring it up at their next meeting and I can talk to the Boosters, as well. But I guess I want to hear from the Board. How do you all feel about this? Karl Law: I think it could be a great addition to the park.

Winemiller: I think so, too. What do you think, Joe? D. Joseph Bates: Who is going to man it in the summertime for the basketball? Is someone from the Youth Commission going to be able to man that?

Winemiller: We would do an evening program, like we did the disc golf last year. During the day, we are going to work with the Town of Harrietstown. Something like this, I could see a lot more teenagers involved in something like this. We would create an evening program very similar to what we do with the ice rink right now. Bates: I am with Don. If the fire department and the Boosters are okay with this and the task force is going to fund raise for it, I don't really have a problem with it. As long as everyone is good with it, then I am good with it. Jennifer Fuller: I'm good with it.

Winemiller: Don, are you okay with it, as long as everyone else is okay with this? Amell: Again, I would like to digest the idea a little more. I ‘m not really sure that is the best spot for it, what you've got boxed in there.

Winemiller: What are you thinking? Amell: I don't know what I am thinking. This is too new. I'd like more than five minutes to think it over. I'd like to digest it.

Winemiller: I understand. I've been working on this for a while. I am going to let it lay, and I will talk to the Fire Department and the Boosters and I will report back at the January 26th or the February 9th meeting as to what I find out.

Winemiller: St. Paul's Church Sewer Back-up: This item was previously discussed in Stan Ingison's Wastewater Report.

Winemiller: UV Light Sanitizer for Youth Building: We purchased a tabletop UV light sanitizer disinfectant lamp for the Youth Building. It kills all the germs in a 20x20 room after 30 minutes. This is just a small, non-commercial space device. It is the same type of thing the County uses for their rooms.

QUESTION OR CONCERNS FROM GUESTS AND STAFF:

Supervisor Winemiller asked if there were any questions or concerns from guests or staff?

Ethan Mikesell: I just wanted to let you guys know that I have been hearing a lot of chatter about the Dollar General in the Hex and Hop tap room. Several people have asked if there was a way they could talk about it or if there was a notice? I didn't know how that worked but I just wanted to ask.

Winemiller: Sure. No problem. Let me just clarify the Town of St. Armand does not have any zoning. If we had zoning laws, we certainly would have had to have a public hearing regarding the Dollar General. As it were, we weren't even sure exactly what was happening until we received a copy of their building permit application. I would say about a year ago I was contacted by an attorney asking about our zoning laws. The attorney did not say they represented the Dollar General or not, and I did not ask. I responded in writing that the Town of St. Armand has no zoning. They had put in a jurisdictional inquiry form at the APA and a copy of that was sent to me and I had to sign off on it that the Town of St. Armand has no zoning. According to Derrick, their APA permit was approved, and they submitted their building permit documents to Derrick. Derrick issued the building permit. I agree if we had zoning, there would have been a public hearing, but since we don't have zoning, we don't have to have a public hearing.

Mikesell: Thanks. I was just trying to figure out what to tell people that have questions. There is no zoning, so a business entity is allowed to move forward as long as they meet code. I will pass that along. I wanted clarification since so many people were asking about it. If a whole bunch of people want to approach the Town, is there a way for them to do that, or no?

Winemiller: Well, people can approach the Town. I don't know if I can answer their questions because Dollar General never contacted the Town of St. Armand Board. They never asked to speak with us. They never requested a meeting. They just went forward with their application. I can try to answer any questions. Derrick, (to Derrick Martineau) are you still here?

Derrick Martineau: I am. It is just as you had said, Davina. And, I have the same situation in a couple of places that don't have planning and zoning. We just follow APA guidelines. Once there is a non-jurisdictional letter or an APA permit given to us, then we just move forward with the project. As far as holding any public hearings, that would fall into play when you have the zoning and planning in place. Then everybody within 500 feet of the area where the building is going in would be notified that there is going to be a public hearing and you can come in and give your thoughts for the Board to consider. Then the Board would just go ahead and vote whether yes it can go there or not, again, in this case without zoning, that step is not in the process. I certainly think if people wanted to come and speak to the Board at a meeting, they have the right to do that. At this point, I do not know what that would do for them. There is really not a lot that can be done. All their plans and everything are spot on. If people have worries about let's say lighting, traffic, that kind of thing, I can say the APA does put restrictions on the lighting. It's not going to be this LED flashing light kind of thing. They can't have any of that. If people have concerns about that, I can always try and negotiate with them to use a little softer lighting. I have done that in the past. Those kinds of things can be worked on. Depending on where the building is located, anything like that, they have to go through NYS Department of Transportation or the County, depending on where the road is, to get permitting for their driveways. All of that type of stuff is looked into as far as safety of people pulling in and out and that kind of thing.

Cheri Fisher: Davina, may I speak?

Winemiller: Okay Cheri. Go ahead.

Fisher: First of all, my internet keeps going in and out, so I might not finish this, but I just want to say that my name is Cheri Fisher. I have been a resident of the Town of St. Armand for 25 years. We currently live at 1787 NYS Route 3. I would like to voice my objection to the building of the Dollar General directly across from our home. I am concerned about the loading and unloading of the trucks at all hours of the day. I am concerned about the lighting requirements for the building and how that will affect my household. I am concerned about every single headlight from every single car that comes out of there shining into my living room and my bedroom windows. I am concerned about possible damage to my property. Will there be fencing supplied to protect surrounding properties? I am concerned about loitering and vandalism to my property and surrounding properties. And lastly, I am very concerned about my property value and the sale of my home if I so choose.

I am regretful that I was not informed of this by the Town of St. Armand prior to this meeting and reluctantly had to rely on word of mouth from some of my friends. I am very disappointed.

Winemiller: Cheri, are you still there?

Fisher: Yes, I am.

Winemiller: I just wanted to touch on the zoning question a little bit. The zoning issue for the Town of St. Armand has been popping up for approximately 25 years. When I began working for the Town in 2012, there was some discussion about doing zoning in 2014. I personally worked on drawing up some zoning plans at that time. In 2015, the Town Board decided not to do zoning and instead had passed the Nuisance Abatement Law. So, that kind of hits in a little bit with that, not necessarily on building. The zoning issue is not new. I don't know if the Town Board wants to discuss doing any kind of zoning in the future. If that's where the Town wants to go, we can certainly look into that. At this time there is no zoning. There is no public hearing. We followed the law that we have, which is the Uniform Building Code and the Adirondack Park Agency Jurisdictional Inquiry form that was submitted. Does any Board member want to expound on that? Jennifer Fuller: I have a question, Derrick. Do you know is the building going to be facing the road? Do you know what the set up looks like?

Martineau: There is actually an extra set of plans at the Town Hall for everyone to look at, so that everybody can come in and look at them (including the public). You can see how every wall is going to be built. Again, I would really be willing to sit down and talk with them and address some of the issues that Mrs. Fisher has to see if we can try and help her out with some of that, to try and help her not have to endure some of the things she is concerned about.

Winemiller: Cheri, would you like to set up a time with Derrick? Derrick has office hours on Fridays. Derrick, this week is 1-4 pm. Do you know what time your appointment is at the Gladd property?

Martineau: I don't. I am waiting to hear from them.

Fisher: I would be willing to meet with you, Derrick, but unfortunately, this Friday I will be out of town. But next Friday I will be here.

Martineau: Sure. I would love to do that, and then I can show you the plans and we can go over some of your concerns and try and soften some things up for you.

Fisher: That's all right. I will talk with Derrick about it.

Winemiller: Cheri, I have your phone number, so I will text you Derrick's phone number and then you two can set up a time on the 22nd to review the plans.

Fisher: Thank you.

Martineau: Perfect.

Winemiller: Does anyone have any other questions for Derrick about the Dollar General? There were no other questions. Warrene McCarthy: Another great meeting, Davina.

Winemiller: Thank you.
