Storage Shed Update:
Decided not to put bids in because Marvin would allow us to store some stuff in the old Cross Creek Building and possibly to have our meetings there.
Trees on Main Street - Larry would get the grates cut around them and filled with sand before the festival. Kelcey and Nancy Diemert would help - Lynne to report to them on what she found out from Mark Billmayer.
Chinook PTO sign project - No changes at this time. Heather advised Donna Rasmussen to go to the CTEP meeting at City Hall 8/7.
Main Street Posts - Christmas Lights and Signs - Nancy will update - Chuck going to CTEP Meeting 8/7/08 at City Hall to ask for $ for the Christmas Lights.
