awarded we will set up a schedule.

The chairs are in. We just have to take a look at them and decide what we want to go

The fans and the blower are going in the air conditioner in the firemen's room. Over the past couple of years we have spent a lot of money to keep it running. I have some quotes to change it out and put two ductless units in the firemen's room.
