Building and Grounds has offered the following motion:

          To enter into the contract with Spectrum for fiber optic cable service to the church



I just got off the phone with Bryant. In order to fully determine the installation configuration we need to move forward with a contract. After the contract is signed we will get a Project Manager assigned who will then schedule a site survey to determine the cable installation configuration. The way I left it, assuming we sign a contract, was they will contact me so that I will present at the site survey. Once the design is complete we would know for sure that the entire installation cost would be covered by Spectrum. According to Bryant, based on the distance they have to lay the cable and the budget they have available there was some surplus money which could cover surprises like getting across (under) our pavement. It is also possible to go a longer route to avoid the pavement. Once the design is presented to us if there are surprises as to our cost we can back out of the contract at that time at no cost, according to Bryant. If we sign a contract in the next couple of days they would likely have someone on site within a couple of weeks which I can support. My vote is to move forward with a contract so we can fully determine the scope.




After several questions. The motion passed unanimously.


Respectfully submitted
