Documents were submitted to the Executive about the damage to the Mojo’s Building from a high wind storm recently. The new policy on Earthquake strengthening is attached along with quotations for repairs of the damage. The building is insured.

Debbie indicated that this building was in need of repair before it could be used again as it is unsafe. It is used for the overflow of Clubs and Societies space. Also the Capping Show props etc are stored there.

There will be a cost for the hire of tarpaulins to cover the damaged areas at $450 per month to protect the damaged areas until the building is fixed up.

Brad left at 5.39pm

It was agreed further investigation and decisions would have to be made as to the outcome of this building and site. Debbie wanted the Executive to be fully informed so as a decision could be made as soon as possible.
