Status of MCCM Facility

Our MCCM Facility is in need of some major work:

  • The HVAC unit is old and unreliable and needs to be replaced. Estimated cost is around $8,000.
  • We added blown-in insulation to the ceiling of the building to reduce HVAC operational costs.
  • The building itself is old (circa 1878) and the foundation is noticeably settling.
  • The HVAC unit and duct work cannot be replaced until we solve the building problem.

We have been assured by several local construction companies that the building is safe to use until we can repair the settling problem.

The board is working with an architectural and engineering company to determine a plan of action.

We have received 2 estimates, to date, for approximately $11,000 and $18,000 to repair the building.

In the near future we will need to conduct a campaign to raise the money to pay for these repairs.

 

Please keep MCCM in your prayers.
