 A.  HVAC – Mini Split for HARC’s space
The Committee previously authorized staff to notify tenant that RAP would cover ½ the cost of purchase and installation of the unit.  HARC has notified staff that they are unable to incur any cost even if the amount is divided over a 12 month period due to limited budget.  The temperature in the room will be too high during the afternoons during the summer without a split unit.  Would the Committee be open to changing the amount that RAP would pay?

 B. Review rates for use of conference rooms
Staff has prepared fees to be imposed for use of the conference rooms for non-tenants. There may be additional costs incurred to ensure health and safety standards that may need  to be considered if the user or landlord should incur these costs. (attach. #3)

Motion:          Second:         Approved:           Opposed:        Abstention Name(s):
