The furnace went out on 1/28/2021. Called Fud & Tracy’s from Wahoo and they came out within the hour. Invoiced $295.04 to replace the hot surface ignitor (which had to be replaced in 2018 also) and switched the thermostat to digital so the library will stay at a more consistent temperature. Fud and Tracy’s recommended budgeting for replacement and left a quote for $3550.00. Also received a quote from SECO Electric for LED thin line light fixture replacements of $159.00 per fixture. If approved, Dorner’s priority would be to update the 6 oldest/yellowing fixtures, all of which are located in the front room.
Board Member Reports: Discussed selling weeded and donated books not added to collection at the Friends’ Garage Sale to clear space and declutter basement storage. Board member Mayfield will ask potential new Trustee member, Kylee Hickman, to start attending meetings beginning next month and will submit her name for approval to the Village Board. Also discussed having a booth representing the Library this year at Mead Days.
