Addendum for Business and Finance Committee Minutes
During the days following the Business and Finance Committee meeting, more questions came up regarding the high school gym equipment and system. Therefore, to ensure Fruitport gets the proper equipment and system for the main gym, the request for the gym sound system is being removed from the January board meeting agenda.
During the next couple of weeks, the team will get back together and ensure the needs of the district are met. Once the team is good with the recommendation, Mark will bring that recommendation to a future Business and Finance Committee meeting.
