Mr. Eric Goldman, Industrial Hygienist for PUC Waste Water Enterprise reported: Two weeks ago PUC personnel discovered lead in paint on the fence that surrounds the Headstart Childcare Center. The fence has since been covered with plastic. PUC will seal fence with paint-like material (5-year lifespan) and in 4 months fence will be replaced. Clean up and samplings will take place to ensure all lead has been removed. Commissioner Brown thanked Mr. Murray for moving quickly to address the issue.

MOTION: Moved by Brown to accept the Director’s Report. Motion passed unanimously to accept report as presented (7-0).
Commissioner Brown clarified some of the discussion that took place at the community meeting at Earl P. Mills Auditorium regarding concerns of Whitney Young Child Development Center (WYCDC), e.g. burglaries. Although the concerns raised by WYCDC had been addressed at the Facility Committee meeting held on Jan 3rd and most had been resolved, WYCDC continued to discuss the concerns.
Comm. Brown reminded WYCDC of the recommendations made by the Facility Committee and pointed out that most of the concerns had been resolved with the exception of connecting the alarm system to Bldg. B ($6,000) which could not take place due to lack of funds.
Also in attendance at the meeting was Mr. Charlie Dunn, Dept. of Real Estate who stated that $39,000 alone has been spent on the EP Mills Center, whereas the other childcare centers have only had an allocation of $15,000 total. Mr. Dunn suggested that WYCDC staff attend the Townhall meeting scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 10, and voice their concerns regarding additional funding and perhaps engage with representatives from the district.
The Facility Committee will revisit this issue in March.
