Elisha D. Smith Public Library
Building and Grounds Committee Meeting
Tuesday, May 8th
Present: O'Brien, Butler and Englebert
Also Present: Director Saecker
The meeting was called to order at 4:40 pm.
The committee discussed the new figures showing that a message center contributes about 2/3 of the cost of the overall sign. With that in mind, the committee reached a consensus not to have a sign with a message center, but a more traditional internally lit sign.
The committee looked at samples of background colors for the sign. Director Saecker will ask for mock-ups of a sign with no message center and with both the burgundy and metallic gray backgrounds so that they can be compared more fully.
Adam had mentioned to Director Saecker that the City may be able to help with running electricity to the sign and creating the foundation for it. He will return with cost figures soon.
Meeting adjourned at 5:10 pm.
