Agenda from Eric

Hey, time for some ranty agenda from Eric. Fun!

  • We do not have gas until the 18th. People's gas is coming out then between 1130 and 1530. Someone has to be there. We do not seem to have access to the spot where the gas meters are, as there is an iron grille in the front and high fencing in the back that belongs to our neighbor. We need to discuss with them the right of way perhaps.
    • What is the arrangement that leads us to be in charge of the gas? I can't find our lease, since presumably Ish still has it from faxing it the other day. Ish bring back the lease please.
    • Ishmael faxed the lease. I don't suppose he scanned it also? I think we should all have an electronic copy of the lease.
  • Mail. Someone has to be responsible for opening this. I found an envelope of unopened mail while looking for the lease. As a result, there are these things:
    • We got $450 from NIU 6 weeks ago. Did we pay will $450 for supplies? What did we pay him, so how much do we keep out of this?
    • People's gas wants our articles of incorporation and business license, things that they kindly didn't ask me for on the phone when I set up the account. Do we have both of those?
