presentation copy hopefully to be added later
overview of the facilities covered
org chart included
hire students during the summer to supplement the help
will be requesting an additional custodian for the new high school
over 10,700 work orders for maintenance
interesting charts, the high school has been declining in work orders yet all the other schools have shown an increase in work orders
(staff more diligent in doing work with tickets and only with tickets)
preventive maintenance schedule, long list of items from roofs to floors, etc.
the solar farm will be providing 70% of the power required, not many can say that
replacing LED lights, did 3 school complex, have plans for remaining buildings to replace exterior lights with LEDs
capital repair projects of 8.6M over the last 12 years
in the middle of buying the fixtures, furniture and equipment for the new high school
Pfeffer - there are 22 buildings; how often are they toured?
D'Angelo - likely at least once a month, some buildings more than others, high school taking 15 hours or so now
I had provided the 5 year outlook with our capital
Pfeffer - I am fishing to see if any other building hasn't been maintained
D'Angelo - the old museum would need work not sure what you'll do with that
Pfeffer - how is the leaking roof problem?
D'Angelo - there are active leaks on the old high school due to the snow and ice build up, we haven't been able to get to
Pfeffer - we spend lots of money on HVAC, how come we don't have that inside?
D'Angelo - there are more advantages to having the outside contractors, they also serve as equipment reps
Kelly - prior to the School Building Committee turning over the high school, will you be providing us with a maintenance plan
D'Angelo - after the training, let us get into the building and see what is going on
Kelly - or are we going to see you coming with requests?
Mercer - why don't you share the schedule of what is being done with the summer schedule?
Kelly - so you'll bring us a schedule?
D'Angelo - yes
Kelly - why do you have so many work orders here? so this shouldn't concern me?
D'Angelo - no
Gaskin - a lot of this is very minor, should have the major work taken out so you can see a break down by category
Kelly - "school dude" - has the library issue been taken care of?
D'Angelo - it has not been yet, it is not work that we do
we want to see what the outcome of the whole thing
Kelly - isn't that our problem? that we are just waiting and seeing?
D'Angelo - we presented a very comprehensive plan to work on the library
Kelly - So you're not going to do anything until you get a decision?
D'Angelo - I am going to do the right thing
Kelly - so how does one get the summer position?
D'Angelo - this is a free ad, they should fill out an application with HR
Bissanti - have you thought of doing some hiring to compliment the HVAC?
D'Angelo - it is a weird specialty, a little bit of electrical, some plumbing, a good HVAC guys get good money, I tried to get someone from a company but they are so expensive
Jones - a lot of the HVAC is service contracts?
D'Angelo - yes, a lot of those things are specialties, these people have licenses and special insurance, they do it well to work for us or they don't work for us
Jones- we wouldn't want to have our folks work on these to put them out of warranty
D'Angelo - yes, you are absolutely correct
Jones - as part of the subcontractors, would it be wide to have some one come in to do an annual sweep?
D'Angelo - our current contract with the custodians requires them to do the work
Nutting - our custodians go above and beyond what they do to maintain what we have
Mercer - what yu staff is dealing with is over 1 million sq foot of space, they do a wonderful job
