As the bright sunshine and calm skies continue, there are some repairs to the campus property that are being completed. These had been scheduled weeks ago and have nothing to do with the recent storm.
Finally the sidewalk pavement in front of the church is being replaced. This had been damaged in the last big snowstorm along with damage caused to our brick columns from plows and snow accumulations. One column suffered a direct hit earlier in the year from a school bus. The column was pretty well shattered...I didn't see what the bus looked like. All the columns were repaired and the electric lights will be. The lights also suffer from the storms, snowdrifts and occasional vandalism.
The surveyors were interrupted by the storm, and were back to measuring our property on Tuesday. They should complete their task this week and forward their data to the civil engineer to construct site plot. As you recall, this survey is preliminary to our site plan amendment application.
Franciso did a great job of attacking all the fallen trees on our property with a power saw and clearing the driveways, pathways and lawns of debris. Our business manager, Jose and Eduardo did a great job of pumping the water from the school basement and attending to the damage from other minor leaks.
Phones are working again in the parish offices and most electric equipment seems fine.
