Director’s Report      

1.  

Children’s Department:                       

To reduce the noise level by the staff workstation in the kid’s area the layout was rearranged and toys were moved back to the rotunda. The new layout is less crowded and seems to be working well.

2.

Kurt obtained the permit from the Village of Johnsburg for the automatic doors. He has placed the installation company and the electrician in contact with each other to begin the process.  Kurt has also received one additional quote for the LED lighting.
