A Message from the Building Committee

2018 Maintenance Projects

First maintenance and painting project for 2018 will be Building #33/35. This building was scheduled to be completed in 2017, but projects in 2017 were larger than expected. In 2018 there will be a focus on catching up with the large backlog of maintenance requests. Additional exterior repairs will be based on severity of the problems and needs. The 2018 maintenance committee will continue the great progress on maintaining the THI buildings.
