circuit breaker amount increased, so it may appear the costs are going down so it may be misleading

a total of a 6% increase as it is (leaving some 'critical needs' out)

Feb 26th (actually a Tuesday - slide said 27th which was last year's date)

add $50K, not $75K for NECC item

Q - if we put the not recommended to the future? how will we pay for those?
A - always an issue, if it goes forward, we will need to be creative, it is a tight budget
