Proposal Jan 2017 Parking

Postby Gabe Brutal » Mon Jan 16, 2017 2:34 pm

I propose that we need to buy gravel to ensure proper drainage in the back parking lot, and the roadway leading from back parking towards the dumpster. This has been a major safety issue. Cars hydroplane through this area when it gets flooded and could easily crash into people walking the road. A quick google search for pea gravel revealed the following: "The price will vary by location and is dependent on the distance from a quarry or a distributor. The general range for a cubic yard of plain pea gravel is about $30 to $35, and a ton will cost about $40 to $45." Pineapple did talk to me about ensuring better drainage for the Spring, so it would be good to have the vets liaison contact Pineapple to see what his plans are before we make a purchase. It's bad when even tow trucks and cars with 4 wheel drive are getting stuck in the back parking lot. Having proper drainage will ensure that emergency services can reach us faster, so people will not need to be removed via helicopter. Minutes can save lives. We could put a call out to the community to find good pricing on gravel if need be. I am also willing to personally research gravel prices in the area.
