Electrical – We met with First Energy (Kim Wolfe) last Wednesday and agreed to use two poles and string triplex to the north end of the parking lot. Kim will send an e-mail documenting costs and asking for about 130 feet of triplex and two poles. Our goal this year is to bring electrical power to the north shed.
